    Thinking about lifting and putting some bigger tires on... What's the best combo as far as how much lift (like 3") and what size tire. I want something that looks good but is still drivable.

    3 inch suspension lift, night shades corner and blinkers projector headlights with halos and 3 led's 18 inch kmc xd rockstar wheels,275/65/18 kelly safari tsr's, bush whacker fender flares 7 inch touch screen, 2 kenwood 12's, Magnaflow exaust single in dual out,
    3 inches with 33's looks really good.. toytec makes a good lift, old man emu (OME) is another good one.. it all depends on your budget and how you plan to use it

    Couple shocks, some old tires, and a bad paint job
    Best setup for what you're looking for (if you have the money) is upgraded shocks; Bilstein/King/SAW, etc. Adjust to your preferred height and toss on some 33x12.5's!

    I have the OME coil overs with billies for the rear. 33x12.5 BFG KM2's. Great ride. My truck needed new shocks all the way around so this was the perfect set up. I ended up getting all new leaf packs by dakar and new UCA's by light racing. Perfect alignment and balance of the vehicle.

    Good luck!
