for a true 3" suspension look into OME 3" suspension lift or blisten 5100's and eibachs with top plate spacers. Both are great lifts, do not resort to a spacer or body lift. However tire size would be a solid 285/65/18 tire of your choice which is a 33" ran by most with the 3" lift. Depending on the rim specs you might need wheel spacers. KPT is a genius at that search for him.

I would recommend OME for the lift.
What size tire do you want to run? You can get 32" or 33" tires in any thing from 16" to 20" and maybe more.

OME for best over all lift. Will be able to run 285/70/17's with 4.5 backspaced MM with no issues unless you off-road. Then you will have to do very slight trimming and possibly a cab mount chop.

When lifting the factory ball joint location will only allow a certain degree of freedom. This being said, when you lift a vehicle, and in the Tacoma case...it seems that the factory hardware will only allow alignment specs to be reached when you lift up to 2.5". Some people have issues with caster at 2.5 and factory arm and some don't, really a hit or miss. It seems like the 99% majority of people up to 2.5" dont need them. Once you go past 2.5 and up they are needed (unless you are 2wd and use a spindle to lift).
