OME on 225/75E16's

Anyone running the OME on these tires? Would like to see some pictures if you have.

Not exactly what you asked for but pretty sure the look will be about the same.
JBA 2.5 with 235/70/16 (calculates to 29 inches versus 225/75=29.3 inches)

Sitting at 21.5 inches from center of wheel to bottom of fender lip.

Awesome thank you. I would deff prefer a larger tire but that makes me more at ease that the dunlop fierce in the stock 225 will not look ridiculous under the lift.

I was worried about those tires looking silly too. I needed a lift to keep the cross members from dragging on the beach. Even with bigger tires and pounding the pinch weld I would not have gotten the same amount of lift.
I really want bigger tires now but with only 9k on the original tires I can't justify the cost of new ones, even if I could sell the ones I got now.

Is that just springs in the front or is there conduit nuts/ Clevis also? Is the rear just OME springs? I am trying to keep the factory rake when I install my OME HD stuff.

mtbiker,
The JBA front is an adjustable coil over strut, no clevis lift. The adjust-a-strut can be raised even higher but others have said higher than 21.5 inches will wear out the CVs, and result in a backward rake with the rear setup.
The rears are Bilstein shocks, not sure about the springs,I think JBA had them made.
