People familiar with older nissan pick up trucks????! help!?

Okay so I just got my first truck On sunday its a 1985 nissan pick up its NOT a 4×4. Its a manual transmission 5 speed. But I was wondering about a lift kit 4-5 in" lift? either a body or suspension kit? also how big can i go on the wheels like without being hard on the motor an what not? so just a simple lift and bigger tires like maybe 24in’-28in’ tires.? so please if any one has info about this or has a truck similar to mine help me.

Here’s a link to what my truck looks exactly like. Thanks for all your help.

    lift the body 2inch and lift the suspension 2 inch. that gives you enough lift to fit 28s under it, and also enough to take it slightly off road.

    You must tighten (replace) all the loose suspension parts before you try to lift up the truck. 1985 Nissan trucks were not know for power from the NAP-Z 2.2 liter motor. Bigger rims tires will need more torque and power. You would be better served just keeping the truck stock and save money toward your new Truck.

    1985 datsun pu no Nissan then. It had a Z24 eng. 8 spark plugs two coils your best best to raise it is a body lift kit. the rear end you can raise with a spacer block. the fount end has a t bar that ends under the cab 18mm bolt head tighten it and it will raise the front end
