Lifted truck with stock wheels / tires

Anybody have any pics of a lifted Tacoma with stock wheels and tires? Depending on the outcome at my local dealer regarding getting the leaf spring tsb, I may find myself going ahead and ordering the aal from Toytec. Ideally I'd like to get the ultimate lift kit that they offer, which of course would include the aal's. However, it's not in the budget at this time to get new wheels and tires as well. So here are my options:

1. Order and install an aal.
2. Order the ultimate lift kit and only install the aal portion at this time, saving the remainder for later.
3. Order and install the ultimate lift kit, but keep the stock wheels / tires for now until new wheels / tires are in the budget.

So will this look out of place and ridiculous?

Nope, it doesn't look too bad. You can check my gallery or look at my signature. My tires are 245/70/16

When I had my 3" level installed, I didn't even notice any height difference until they threw the tires on honestly. To each his own.

Don't bother lifiting it if you aren't going to put bigger tires. No offense please, but it looks pretty bad. If money is short get bigger tires and no lift then it looks better not worse.

That's just your opinion. It doesn't look bad at all, especially if you're simply lifting to even out the rake.

Besides, you're the last person who should be giving suspension advice, mister "I change my suspension setup more than my clothes, oh wait, stock was the best".

If I lift it, I will put on different tires / wheels at a later time, just not right now. I asked the question because I am possibly needing to put an aal on soon, so going with tires and no lift wouldn't do me any good.

I am not the one who should be giving advice huh, lol? You don't know my expertise at all. I have had just about every set up you can have on these tacomas with the exception of a spacer lift. I have had Camburg LT, Icons, OME, and bilstein 5100s. I think my level of expertise far surpases yours.
In any event. I would recommend coilovers first, then OME or 5100s. If you have a ton of money and want to do some rogish off roading then LT is the way to go.
Quit talking out of your ass bro.

Option 3 would be the best, good luck with your setup.

Just out of curiosity, if I installed the lift now, then the wheels / tires later, would that mean two separate alignments?
