    I don’t think I’m understanding what you are asking? You want to lift the truck but you don’t want to change any parts?
    Are you wanting to add parts? Like spacers and AAL?

    I would like to install a lift kit without having to replace factory parts like shocks and tires

    So you want to replace coils or do a spindle lift?

    Do you mean rims or the tires? If you lift it you’ll probably want larger tires to fill the space better.
    265/75/16 is the biggest tire on stock wheels before you’ll need wheel spacers. I don’t recommend wheel spacers.

    If you want a spacer lift it will add height but the ride quality will suffer. I wouldn’t get above coil spacers they can cause damage to the shocks and decrease down travel. In-coil spacers have a less likely chance of causing damage but limit the up travel. I would do an AAL not a block in the rear.

    You’re limited to spacers and AAL if you don’t want to replace parts like shocks. Otherwise bilstein 5100’s and an AAL would be a cheap and good way to lift it 1-2”.

    Spindles will get you 6 inches but you will be front high. The rear would need a leaf pack and new shocks for match the 6 inch lift.

    Sounds like they just want 1-2” lift or level without replacing anything.

    I’d just leave it then.

    Are those 16” or 17” wheels?

    I'm looking to purchase a lift kit for my 16 Toyota 4wd, but I can't decide on a 3" or 4". Do you have any suggestions or can you tell me pros and cons?

    3” is as high as I’d go. To achieve 4” you’ll need spacers or a body lift. I don’t know of any 4” suspension lifts for your truck. Even at 3” you may need new UCA and other parts.
    These trucks are best at 2.5-3”.
