Lifting first tacoma

So I bought a 97 tacoma and I want to lift it. My end goal is to put 32" mud tires on Mickey Thompson side biter's on it. How much should I lift it to give the tires clearance? And who makes a good lift? It already has the stock 31" AT's on it.

Thanks guys!

2" to 3" would work good.
I reccomend OME (Old Man Emu) by ARB

And the 2" add-a-leaf is sufficient in the back?

I went with the Dakar leaf pack on mine.
If you go with an AAL I would recomend a 3 leaf progressive one. Icon & Wheelers get good reviews.

I concur with what has been said above by the others. I love my OME suspension. Good luck and looking forward to the build.
