need a lift

anybody is it worth it to get a 3" lift on the 06 tacoma 4wd for bigger tires or stick with the same size and go with a/t tires? ive got stock tires 245/75/16 not worth a damn in this carolina mush around bolton

i'd go w/ the 3" and get some tires to fill it in. the biggest u can go stock is a 265/75/16. and i think that still requires some trimming. where in NC are u located?

If you go with a 3" lift, you should be able to fit 285/75/16 (33's) on it. That should fix you right up. Quite a few people have that configuration and are very pleased with it.

Yup, 285/75/16's... loose the Mudflaps up front and slight trimming... More than happy, and definately getting second looks while driving around. Plus, the ride is nice and solid, with good traction on road. Just make sure you go with the tires you like...
