    I bought an 04 trd with 103,000 on her. Now shes got 142,000. I really want a 3 inch lift BADLY, with some new tires so I can hit the trails a little harder. I was just wondering if it would even be worth my time and money to invest in either or. And if so any ideas for the lift/tires?

    it's up to you to decide whether or not you'll need the lift, if you're going to use it or put in on purely for looks.

    then, if you decide you need a lift, you need to decide what your budget is.

    Lifts can cost anywhere from $200 to 5k, depending on what you get.

    Same goes for tires, depending on how much you offroad, you need to decide what you need. Offroading 35-100%, get MTs. anything below get ATs

    if your doin it strictly for looks and a little trail riding spacer and aal is cheap and gives you the look but not the ride, a good option is billi 5100's with eibach coils all four shocks and coils come to like 600 bucks. put the wheelers 5 pack leaf set in the rear and you got a good looking set up with good performance

    Have you replaced your shocks anytime recently? If not, then it is a great time to do the lift. You can kill two birds with one stone so to speak.
