Sounds like this is your daily driver.
So, stay away from big expensive lifts that need serious alignment work after install.
Maybe 2" at most.
Sometimes an extra inch keeps water off the floorboards.
Puddles sometimes stall vehicles if the air box is not right, check into that.
I'm not sure where the transmission vent is on the 01 model, anyone?
