    Suggestions for a good durable 3 inch lift that won't f-up my truck too bad. I like offroading but dont do it all the time. When I do its in the mud or on mountainous terrain.(rocks, hills etc.) What else on the truck would I have to change when the lift is installed? How badly will it affect daily driving. I need it in Barney language too no abreviations. I'm new to the mod world of taco's.



    Some gave all, all gave some.

    I would recommend a OME setup. Do about a 2.5-3" lift. The OME products are pretty heavy duty. Really wont affect your daily driving too much.

    I was looking to fit 33's on there but Im worried it will look too much like a stuffed sausage, as well as some rubbing. Do you know what kind of lift to get to clear those size tires? I want to go that big because the 18 X 9 rims i want only have mud tires in that size or bigger.

    For a full 33" tire you will need to do some trimming. I would say go for a 285/75R16 (not sure what it would be in an 18" wheel), it is just a bit smaller than a 33 and usually fits a 2.5-3" lift with No or very minimal trimming.

    I would recommend toytec ultimate lift package with the 2"aal in the rear and it comes w/ the bilstien 5100's I really like my setup. It only rubs with full lock in reverse which is weird. But I run 285/85/r17 procomp extreme A/T. Other than the rub in reverse very happy with it.
