Default Lift is on (pics)

Got my lift installed monday and the tires on today!
The sytem i went with is OME882s upfront with the stiff struts, out back i did an allpro ubolt flip, some deaver 8leafs, OME comfort shocks, and a 1inch lift shackle from toytec. The tires are 255/85/16 bfgs. I like the setup and the tires rub on the frame pretty good (steering stops?) but nothing i cant live with or modify. Looks like ill rub on the fenders, ill post some pics when i flex it out to measure for bumpstops, then some wheeling pics!!!
stock:

taken about 10mins ago when i got home from the tire shop:



Thanks to evreyone on here, i did a ton of searching and would have known nothing about what stuff to get without this site!

That front seems to be too low? it looks like the same height as my stock 95 with a V6, and almost 200,000 miles. Other than that I like it, I was hoping to go with that tire size eventually too, but we will see after I get my lift on.

I forgot to measure up front when i put the lift on, but it looks like i gained an inch or two. I didnt put the lift on for height tho, i wanted to get the best performance (i know coilovers, i have road salt to deal with) and fit the biggest tire i could on there to keep the CG low. Im happy with the stance! This truck was a snap to lift, i got the front struts off and me and my jeep buddies were like "thats it?" holy crap thats easy!

how's the power with the 255/85 and 4.10's? MPG yet? I have a set of 255's ordered, haha.

Truck looks great, i'd paint the bumpers and core support black though

Thanks man! The power isnt bad, I hardly noticed a drop, the braking is what I noticed the most (expected). I have only driven this thing like 10miles since the tires so no MPG yet. As for the bumper, i like the white on there, gives it a nice look i think. I gotta yank it off and repaint it this summer, its rusting crazy bad from this salt! Im going to paint all the junk behind it black though.

Looks normal to me. Look at the before and after pic and the angle of the control arms in the third picture.
