    Welcome to TW!

    Not sure if your asking what sized lift you can fit or what size lift is on the truck.

    Looks like no lift to me.

    I'd say a 2 or 3" lift would look classy. I have no lift but I hate Tacos with 5" + lifts... Seems to me that they're compensating for something a bit smaller... ;)

    Your choice though, whatever YOU think will look good. If you like it, that's all that matters. Good luck, man!

    I was going to do the 3" lift and 285/75/16 combo, but I was forced to buy new tires before my lift. I had to go 265/75/16 since they're the biggest that will fit with the stock suspension.

    After driving with 32s I decided that I would need to regear if I were to get 33s, so now I've decided to do bilsteins at 1.75" and a 1.5" AAL and stick with 265/75/16.

    IMO, 32s don't look right on a 3" lift, but 33s do.

    I don't think those tires will fit with a 2" lift unless you cut the fenders and do CMC.

    When you say the tires won't fit, are you saying they will rub the fenders?
