I need reasons to convince my dad

So I am thinking/wanting to put an OME 3" lift kit on my Taco but my dad doesnt want me to do it ( I still live at home). He thinks my truck will look like a Bro's F150 that is lifted way to high. So can I get some good reasons to convince my dad to let me get a lift. Thanks

Did you show him pictures of people's trucks from this forum? And discuss the improved ride*? Who owns it, you or dad?

If it's your truck and you pay for it there isn't much he can do. If he owns it and you drive it you are probably sol.

I got it as a gift , but I paid for half of it. I have shown him pictures but he thinks it will wreck the car. He thinks if you change the shocks it will change everything about the car and it could ruin it

Sounds like Dad would be the one to buy the lift?

If the money is coming out of Dad's pocket - then guess what? Start mowing the lawn, pulling weeds, doing some laundry, scrubbing the floors and rubbing your dads feet.

Is it under your name? Are you going to pay for the lift?

many instances ppl say that installing newer shocks improves the ride. its not that expensive to get a decent 3 inch lift.

How about telling him you just want to improve the ride by upgrading the shocks to a much better riding 5100? (...set at 2.5 of course, and sacrifice the .5" in order to get it)

This bring back memories of highschool. And makes me so happy to be grown up and moved out. I know that doesn't help, I'm just saying.
