    Toytec 3" lift just came on Friday so I should have it installed this week.

    I'm going to go with the Dick Cepek DC-1's but not sure on the 16" or 17"

    Anyone have any opinions on one or the other?

    I personally like 17's, no particular reason why other than looks.

    I'm partial to 16's just because I like a taller sidewall.

    Thanks Guys.

    After some quick photoshop edits this is what I've come up with.

    Hard to guess what the 3" Toytec will do, but you get the idea.

    16" has more sidewall, more tire selection, cheaper tires.
