    Welcome to TW, first off not to sound like a dick but where the usual questions concerning what you're asking has been asked & answered a 1000 times over, meaning you should do a little searching first before asking. I say this mostly because around here thats a pretty generic question, anyway a 3" suspension lift will always look better than any kind of body lift, & the 33's are going to decrease mileage a little I'd think & remember, the 3.4 V6 was never known for being a gas sipper....

    3" and 33" should work okay. BTW, what the hell is "dissision"? You mean "decision"?

    No worries dude...:D

    With the 33's & being a 1st gen. you may have to trim a little plastic inside the fender wells in front, maybe cut or knock down the pinch weld a little, you'll always have a little inside frame rubbing while offroading or in a tight turn with some bumps in the road, the rear should be fine tho'.....;)

    Doug is spot-on!

    Recommend you begin your lift research in the Suspension forum, OP, with emphasis on the Tacoma Lift FAQ/Guide and Suspension Lift Info stickies. You'll also find that Google is very good at locating previously discussed topics.
