    hey guys and ladies, i was wondering if anyone could say anything about a high performance three inch lift. First of all will it make my truck look any higher whatsoever or is it just a waste? Also I ve been looking at king and fox high performance packages do these automatically give you lift, or do you also need like block or spacers or something? Finally can anyone suggest one of the two or others?

    Id prefer not to just put block under it cuase honstly its kinda pointless for offroading!

    And I want my truck to be able to do well offroad at least if im spending the money

    i'm pretty sure a lot of guys on here are going to tell you that for a three inch lift you should go with the toytech. it's not crazy expensive and has gotten good reviews on here (nice ride, even with the 2.5 setting). i even think there is a group buy going on right now if you're interested. idk, an expert will be with you shortly :D haha

    Your truck will be higher and adding a taller tire will give you additional clearance. I'm running coil-overs from ICON. Fox and King shouldn't be anything different. You can adjust the ride height up to 3.5" but after market UCA is recommended if you go over 2.5."

    Thanks man. Glad to be of help.

    By the way, I have 32" tires only. I think 33" will look much aggressive but there will be rubbing. Check out the build section, so you can compare and decide the look you want. Meanwhile, here are pics of my truck in different heights.
