How big lift? What size tires?

I have a 2003 prerunner ext. Cab. How big of lift should I put on it and what size tires to go with it? I was thinking about 3" lift with 32" tires but I want to make sure that I see a differnce in height.

You will definitely notice a difference in height with a 3" lift. I have a 2.5" OME lift on 31" tires, and I notice a big difference. The 3" with 31-33" tires are a very popular combo, so I'd say it's a safe bet. Have any kits in mind?

I plan on doing a little bit of off roading but not a whole lot because it is a 2 wheel drive. I am basically just trying to make it look sick.

A friend of mine has 33/12.50/15's with a 3" revtek lift and I haven't noticed any rubbing when wheeling with him. I could be be wrong though since its not my truck and haven't put it through the paces offroad myself.

On stock wheels they will on full lock turns, it rubs on the frame. If your get 4" backspacing wheels or wheels spacers on stock wheels your good
