2.5" or 3" leveling kit

I have a factor 05 toyota tacoma prerunner with 265/75/16 tires what would look best 2.5 or 3" leveling kit??? I understand that the 3" will kind of give it at nose up look or stance which I like, but would my tires look to small??

Just go for the 2.5". It will still make the truck nose high. Quite a bit actually. If you go that high I would put and AAL in too. I think 2" in the front and and 1" in the rear is good for those size tires.

Go over 2" and plan on getting some new upper control arms too.

Billys (5100) set at 1.75 if you have 4 leafs in the back or .85 if 3 leafs. If you wanna be nose high do the 1.75 setting. You tires wont look small.
