    Is it ridiculous to put a lift, big wheels and big tires on a sport prerunner? I think i might feel a little stupid since I won't be doing any or much off roading, but it just looks so damn sick!!!

    Dude i would say its your call. Like you i have a prerunner and put some thought into liftin it but havent yet. I think of it this way, alot of people raise thier trucks and dont go 4x4in because the truck is to damn nice and unless they got some cash to waste on fixing the shit the breaks for whatever reason they arnt going to bother beating it up. I guess what im saying more people raise there trucks for looks then for function.

    Of course you should lift it if that's what you want. Whether it's 4X4 or not has nothing to with ground clearance.
