Default old mans ranger

So my old man has an 85 ranger that he wants to put new wheels on along with a lift kit. So he bought wheels for a bronco, long story short we had to buy spacers to make the rims fit. I'm his mechanic and have been for a while so he trusts that i know what im doing but i need your guys help. Would a 2 inch lift be sufficient? Does anyone have pictures of an 85 lifted? These rims are 15x8 with a 1.5 inch spacer and he's looking to put at least 255's 60 sidewalls maybe. Anyone have any specs that i could work with?? Any input welcome. Thanks.

What im concerned about is that they are bronco rims. i dont know the offset for them along with the 1.5 inch spacer. Definitely can go with a 4 inch lift though if that one is 3

Unfortunately yes. He bought them thinking they were 5 lug and they would just fit but they don't. He also bought the spacers for it already. Don't think he would sell them. Those are the ones he wants.

You mean Full Size Bronco rims? 5X5.0" big ford lug pattern?
