lift question

I am new here and a novice with respect to working on cars, etc. I have a 2009 double cab prerunner with 46,000 miles on it and would like to get just a little more height. I don't want it to look pimped out but I want it to look taller and a little more aggressive. What would you recommend that is the cheapest and least harmful to the truck?
Getting new tires, a tonneau cover and some additional tint as we speak.
Thanks.

Bilstein 5100's. You'll find endless threads here discussing them, and will probably find that they're exactly what you're looking for.

depends how much you want to spend. Many will say lift spindles, which I would agree. Its the best way to lift prerunners!

It may be the best way but not everyone wants 4 inches and that aggressive stance it gives you. Plus the price is pretty significant. I'd love to get some maxtracs but price point and a few other considerations are making me a little reluctant.

OP I agree Bilsteins are a great inexpensive option that tons of guys run. You may also want to pair them with some Eibach or OME coils if you want a little more lift.

If you are not going off road and you want to raise it a little for aesthetics only, then go with a top plate spacer kit, about 300 or less, quick and easy. I ran a revtek on my Gen 1 04 and it looked good. Everyone will tell you 5100's are the way to go, but if you just want looks the spacer is fine IMO. (Rancho 9000's were a little rough in the back tho)
