    Ok, here it goes...

    I'm looking into getting a 3" suspension lift with 33's, but my brother who has lifted many trucks, thinks I should put a 2" body lift with 32's because it would lessen how much power I would lose.

    My questions is: How much power will I lose, where/when will I notice it, is there any way to get any of it back? Also, does anyone have any recommendations for a good 3" suspension lift?

    i like my 3" toytec lift, 3" spacer up front and AAL in the back.... cost was around $230

    didn't loose too much power, whatever i lost, it was worth it for the ride and the looks, IMO
