what do i need?

ok, tried search barring, but everything (most) is for tacomas... but im getting my grandfathers 05 tundra... im wanting to lift it, ive been doing some searching, i want to do a 6 inch lift, maybe 5 inch, but i can only find a 6 inch lift from tuff country which is like 1600 bucks... is there any alternatives for 6 inch lift? all i can find is 2.5 or 3

so heres my questions

1. what brands make a 6 inch lift for the tundra?

2. what size wheels/tires can i run with out rubbing?

3. do i need other parts other than a "lift kit" ex shocks, leafs etc...

thanks guys, sorry for the dumb questions, i would have rather just bought a truck with a lift but this was my only option

Try Fabtech or ProComp. Don't use a body lift.

I know if you get just a big body lift they are junk but why not an extra 2 inches to clear the wheels?
