    You could fit it in there with some trimming. The trimming is subjective to how hard you drive your vehicle though. Some trim more than others. If you are going a full 3'' you are going to need to buy new upper control arms in order for you to get it aligned correctly.

    What type of 3'' lift are you looking into? This might help others answer your question better.

    Personally, I'd recommend getting camburg 4'' or total chaos 3.5'' lift spindles because then you have a little more lift and more ground clearance since you are a prerunner. Which should mean a little less trimming.

    If you go 4", you will have no down travel, and the truck will ride like a wagon. IF, your ball joints survive.

    You have roughly 8" of up and down wheel travel in the front. By lifting 3", you take away 3" in which the suspension can travel downward. Leaving 1". By lifting 4", you nolonger have any.

    The truck will ride rough and you will wear out components if you go with that much lift. Unless you buy a spindle lift, not something he will be able to make you, because those aren't easily made.
