Just lifted my truck and got new wheels

Hey whats going on guys? I finally got around to ordering the lift and wheels for the truck. I put it on the other night but its been raining here so I haven't had a chance to take any pictures. please Excuse the dirty truck. And also I wanted to say thank you to Raul for answering my phone call at 11:00pm his time 2:00Am my time. Thanks again man for the help. Got it all figured out once you sent that pic. Anyways heres the truck:

Pro Comp 4inch
18" KMC Rockstars Wrapped in Pro Comp Xtreme Mud Terrains 35s. Looks small in pics but its deff bigger then stock and looks good IMO in person. Hopefully we'll have another meet and I'll try coming out.

I got a quick question for you guys. After I lifted it I can now watch my fuel gauge needle move like my old V10 moved lol..Im wondering if its because I still have it on Looney with my old tire size on there? i doubt it was from the 35. I mean I havent really got a chance to calculate it but I would have to say Im around 12 no joke. I use to be at like 18 getting on it ALOT. Any help would be great at this point. I did shim the driveshaft as well. I put in 1inch worth of shims. (4inch lift, 1/4 per. 1inch.) But after I put the truck on the ground it said that I gain 7inches when I remeasured it.? Should I put more shims in there? IDK I love the truck but I want to get my mileage back. Please help me!!!

I want to change the bumpers if I can..I need to see some ideas. I some Ideas in mind but idk what I want to do yet. quote from Raul himself "I hate the chrome" lol. I feel his pain..once the grill is on there..maybe tint the windshield. Add some sticks like ABOBB said it mite start to take some shape. I like the clean look but I hate the chrome that ford put on there.
