    Wouldn't it lift the SR5 trucks a little more, considering I've only got a 31" tire on it now, it would lift it 5" would it not?

    How do you figure this? A tire 2" larger in diameter is going to give 1" more to the height of the vehicle...then, a 3" lift will add, 3", bringing the total height to 4"

    I'm just retarded. Thing is right after I posted it, I realized oh yeah it's only gonna be another inch added, then I was thinking about going back and changing it when I saw you replied.
