need info on lift setup

Ok, so here goes I'm about start my mods soon and I would like to know more as I don't know much. I'm planning on getting the basic 6" fabtech lift and replacing the front coilovers and rear shocks with fox. My intentions are to get up to 8-9" of lift. As for leaf packs I'm looking at alcans would I need to purchase leafs with 6" or 8" of lift? How does this worke and what else would I need to get my desired height?

i know this is random but I'm new and need help. i ordered a 3 inch rough country lift for my 2010 tacoma and every where i read people are running 285/75R16 but the RC site says 265/75. I'm gonna be keeping my stock wheels and won't be doing much off roading at all, more for looks. anything will help. thanks

From my experiences here on TW, people get that high with a 6" suspension lift and 2" or 3" body lift. Personally I think thats a little much.
