    I have around 3000$ to 3500$ for a 3" lift and 33" AT tires. This truck is my daily driver so i do not want to kill the ride. What do i do?

    What are you looking for in a lift?

    Do you offroad a lot? What kind of offroad?

    I've got the 3" pro comp lift and it's perfect for me. A little stiff but it's not as bad as everyone makes it sound. I got it and had it professionally installed for around 700.00... that would leave you plenty of cash for tires and rims. I would recommend it.

    $3500 will be enough to acheive what you need. U should look around the site at member rides to see what you like first, though.

    I have this lift and no complaints, but for your budget I would get something better.

    im thinking OME with Dakars and UCAs. Thanks for the opinions. I would use the lift probably 85% on road and the rest off road on some easy trails we have in Tennessee. The installation i would do myself, i am great friends with the guys at the toyota dealership here so i can get it aligned and put together for fairly cheap.
