This is a truly great setup and one that I aspire to build. Your details are really thorough so I have to cross-check which one would work on mine that I could handle as well and which one I would need help to do so. Right now, I'm planning to have an upgrade with the suspension and been looking at 4wheelonline for the right suspension lift kit to use. Aside from that, I am changing the wheels and add mud tires on it. I do hope it goes well. I need to look for wheels that are the same size as yours. I really appreciate your rig and it makes me excited to work on mine.

Thanks! My lift is pretty much pieced together from various parts, so it can be bought in stages. hence the "modified OME" title. It's based around OME springs, but otherwise it's just pieces, lol. All the info I gained to do this is around here on this site, this way of lifting is fairly common here since a lot of us don't want to fork out $4000 for a Superlift (plus more if you want a shop to install it since cutting & welding are required), but want more than what a cheap 2" budget lift can offer.
My wheels are still the stock OEM things. Once lifted, you have to run wheel spacers with the stock rims for clearance, but otherwise they work just fine. I'd rather put more money into other mods than by a 2nd set of rims, lol.
Let me know if you got specific questions on cross-checking parts or where/how I got something! I still have documented lists, prices and vendors for all my stuff so far. Also, I never got a message that you posted here, so better to PM me if you want a quicker reply!
