Was short there, sorry. What you want to copy and what I see in pic.
5th Gen 17" wheels probably 285/70-17" tires equal to your 16" 5 star wheels with 285/75-16" tires.
No Body lift, Tire to body flair gap in shadow, I'll say looks like 2.5-3" suspension lift. The norm.

Pulling running boards enhances the visual alot, might be enough for you
paired with the 99 Tall springs and a aggresive looking 265/75-16" tire.
A 285/75 tire usually requires a lift for anything more than mall crawling.
You didn't mention mileage on Runner you bought I'll guess 150k+ on original springs.
Try this Runnings boards removed. Go to tire store have sales grab pairs
of a 265 & a 285 size in tread of choice put in front tires on vehicle on same side.
Visualize new 99 Talls giving you 1.5" of lift F & R decide if that enough or you want more.
Costs nothing but time takes some guess work out.
Have fun jumping in the rabbit hole, Ha.

Edit: If you want more than 99 Talls link has different ways of getting it and costs.
Edit X2: Absalom's Cookie Cutter 4runner Builds - New and Updated! another good link.

Are you saying the tires will help me visualize a lift before I put it on? Or no.. just put tires on at tire store after I get the 99s on? Sorry Iím a bit confused.

Before you buy your lift there are alot of things to consider.

Intended use of the vehicle, added weight, condition of LBJ, cv boots, UCA, etc.

In my experience/opinion a good overall setup is a 2-2.5" suspension lift on 32" tires. In my case 265/75r16.

When I lifted my truck (approx 2.5") both cv axels tore boots, and my passenger side LBJ tore and lost its grease within a year. So be mindful of those components current condition. Maybe just reboot the CV axels prior to lift.

Most people don't have alot of problems in terms of cv angles and alignment when lifting less than 3 inches.

If you plan on adding a drawer system, bumpers, etc plan ahead for that too or you will be swapping coils often chasing a perfect height you had in your mind.

Dobinsons make a good kit for the 3rd gen, and Ironman seems to be similar.
