I have a buddy with this set up on his 71 ford. The radius arms on this lift will add allmost 2" up front. they mount about 8-10"'s behind stock. The kit is a littly $ if i did mine over this is the way id go. I run skyjackers 6inch system on mine right now. To even make it better go with

I am in the middle of doing a frame off rebuild of my 84 F150 4wd (same suspension as your 95) and I am using the Superlift 6" kit that bocephus_3349 is showing from Bronco Graveyard. The rear lift was pretty straight forward, full 6" lift with no blocks. The front was a bit more involved, not difficult though. You have the 4/6" TTB drop brackets for the axle beams and radius arms. Getting the frame rivets out can be a PITA laying on your back... I believe I have mastered this. Rather that using the stock radius arms I opted for the Super Runner extended arms. In doing this you reuse the stock radius arm brackets and move them back 18". I ran into a problem with the brackets interfering with the transmission crossmember. Superlift offers an adapter bracket to solve this problem, I modified my trans crossmember to work with the brackets instead. The job has been conciderably easier for me because I am dealing with a bare frame... no engine/trans, no body, etc. If you are going to run your truck off road hard, many lift kit manufacturers recommend stitch welding the TTB brackets to the crossmember. I did one further and added steel plates to the areas where the bolts go through the crossmember to reinforce it and prevent stress cracks. Hope this helps!
