    So I bought a 97 tacoma and I want to lift it. My end goal is to put 32" mud tires on Mickey Thompson side biter's on it. How much should I lift it to give the tires clearance? And who makes a good lift? It already has the stock 31" AT's on it.

    Thanks guys!

    And the 2" add-a-leaf is sufficient in the back?

    I went with the Dakar leaf pack on mine.
    If you go with an AAL I would recomend a 3 leaf progressive one. Icon & Wheelers get good reviews.
