A 4x4 Taco with 3" of lift will definetly have vibration issues. I would not recommend it.

If your already getting a AP pack, then id say best 3" would be ext. coilovers. (since you will also be getting new uca's?)

150 for 4 bilsteins 5100
160 for eibach springs
80 for add a leaf
60 for an alignment
Total for me was roughly 450 dollars for my lift, it's a little under 3 inches of lift aswell
