Suggestions/Tips for 3 inch lift

I'm seriously considering a 3 inch suspension lift for my '01 taco. I found a Tuff Country lift that i'm liking...anyone have any suggestions or tips for what you have done/recommend?
Thanks...
Here's the link to the lift i'm currently looking at: http://www.suspensionconnection.com/...on/529043.html

I just want to throw a comment in here-IMO 3" is a perfect lift height for a 1st gen-my neighbor did a 6' lift and I have to say it looks really dumb I think it's because our trucks aren't that wide and when you add too much height that truck looks like a scissorjack! So whatever you decide, keep it in the ballpark
Beyond this, PM Chris4x4 if you want real smart advice.

With sufficient thrust, pigs fly just fine.

Thanks, Frank!!!


OP, If looking for a lift, some better options would be:

OR

I would recomend the OME lift, and get some better shocks since your going to have everything apart anyway, and they are probably due.
