2 things speak against this setup:
The high center of gravity with a 10000lb trailer in tow seems like a very bad idea. You will need a huge drop bar, which will act like a rotational lever to the fore/aft centerline of the truck. My take is that this is not a safe setup, especially not for full time use.
It is quite likely that the 37" tires were installed with out differential modifications, therefore your final drive ratio might be in the low 3's, which will make your otherwise well matched rig a very slow affair.
