    I am stupid when it comes to lifting a truck. I am trying to decide whether to go with a 3" toyotec or a 6" procomp. I will never get the truck offroad but i wont it to look nice but try to stay as close to the factory ride as i can. What kind of recommendations do yall have.
    Any opinions would be appreciated.

    If you want to keep it close to factory ride, dont lift it. BUT you will get closer to factory ride with a 3" lift, and you dont have to cut your crossmember

    CAI, dynomax turbo exhaust system,tinted windows medium on the fronts to match the backs, hid kit hi and low beam, pop and lock tailgate, painted calipers red with caliper paint, put 2.25' leveling kit in front and a 1" block in the rear. its now level and rides WAY better (readylift)>way nicer than the revtek my buddy has i think its garbage imo<, hurst "T" shifter, 18 x 10 american racing (can't remember the name) chrome rims with badass 5 inch lip :), 12 inch rockford fosgate punch with rockford fosgate 600 watt amp, bushwacker fender flares (cheaper than replacing the one i wrecked lol) ,kc light bar with kc lights, toyota aluminum stamped skid plate, and a skull front license plate. More mods to come, thinking a 6 inch lift and arb bumper etc etc.
    but if your like me and want a big truck 6 inch procomp is nice. ( no its not a small weenie syndrome, the trails here would eat you alive with a 3 inch lift )

    I thought that the 6 in lift kept the geometries closer to factory specs than the 3 in since you do drop the front diff. Correct me if i am wrong because i am debating the same, to go 3 or 6in.

    3" coilover lift + Camburg Spindle 3" lift = 6" lift and it rides better than those junk 6" lift out there on the market
