    Hi im thinking of just going with a 3" suspension lift but would i be able to run bigger tires? if so what would be the highest i could use maybe like 35's or is that to big?

    Or should i do a body lift?

    money is not really a issue here so what would u recomend? is ebay kits good or junk im doing it for show and not really for extreme off roading

    Get the ultimate lift kit from toy tech. You DEFINITELY want a suspension, not body. Whatever you choose, get a good set of coilovers and an AAL for the rear

    lift, big boy tires, deck plate, no more sway bar, painted stuff
    just don't do it. problem solved.

    if you want to lift it, especially 3 inches, get an aal and coilovers. looks better, safer, and better all around.

    Well that kinda depends on what you want.
    If you just want like a one stop shop, you can do something like this:
    http://www.offroadwarehouse.com/products/sfID1/4/sfID2/78/sfID3/83/productID/50906

    That get's you a set of Fox Mid Travel Coilovers with RR, TC UCA, and Fox rear shocks with RR.

    Only thing that kit doesn't come with would be rear lift. You can either do something simple like a AAL or something nice like a Deaver spring pack.

    I'd say take a stroll through wheelers website and take a look at their different options as they offer some pretty good packages. http://www.wheelersoffroad.com/9504tacoma.htm
