New Tacoma owner needs advice with mild lift kit purchase

I know this site is full of these questions but....

What kit is best for a 3" lift.

I was looking at the ready lift kit with the block spacer for the leaf springs, is this a good idea?

What brands have the best name for quality, I don't mind spending a bit more on a good set up for my Baby.

any advice at all would be a help.

Cheers.

You get one freebee
Next time just search! There are at least 4 different post on the first page alone.

Are you looking to lift for looks or purpose?

5100's all around 0-2.5" adjustable in the front max
Toytec Ultimate Lift Kit 0-3.5" (utilizes the 5100 with adjustable coilovers)
OME 3" Lift Kit
All good ways to go for if you have a budget. $400-$800

Since you said you don't mind spending a little more, then FOX or Icon's 0-3.5" lift.

Also after you lift you will notice wandering. New UCA's will help with alignment. Total Chaos, Camburg, Icon's (if you got the cash) and Light Racing. UCA's aren't really need but definitely recommended.

Also will you be getting after market wheels and bigger tires. Tires you want to have a 4.5 backspace. For tires 285/33 is the biggest you can go with a 3" lift. Trimming will be involved.
