New 4 in. lift. Suspension

Hello there. Excuse my ignorance up front. Wanting to give my 2011 TRD sport 4wheel a lift. Would like a 4 inch susp. Would like a resevoir/coil over. 90% road10% off. would like to move 33s. on 15x10s. Recommendations on tires would be appreciated. Budget 2500. Any recommendations? and what to use in rear. Really want to keep the smoothest ride possible. Thanks in advance my friends.

Just so you know 15"s wont fit. Anything over 3" you need to do a drop bracket lift.

RCD makes a 4.5" lift I believe give them a Google. Are you sure you want to go 4"s?....They have a great selection on 3" lifts as well and thats what most of us are running with 33"s.

dont need 4" for 33" tires.
also if you are 90% on road, you wont need a resivoir.

i would suggest
OME 885x coils with OME struts up front
out back since ive only drove on a full OME Dakar leaf pack, i cannot compare between a leaf pack or add a leaf.

If your 2500 budget includes wheels and tires go with an OME 3" lift like others have suggested.

Thank you for all replies. As far as inches. Just thght 4 in looked good. As far as performance, does 3 or 4 have better performance. Really liked the long travel fox with total chaos set up. Seen it several times in several tacos. I have 2500 aside for lift alone. And for rear I'd like to stay away from any blocks. New complete leaf springs ok? Thanks again.

$2500 will only get you control arms and some extension pieces for the front if you want a LT kit. You don't need that for 90% road anyway. I would just do like everyone has said and run an OME lift. You can do the whole truck that way with the $2500. 3" is the most population lift for these trucks. There is nothing that 4" will get you over that a 3" won't.
