    3” lift, black step bars, aftermarket wheels, LT305/55R20 was this way when I brought it.

    If it is the same as the 2018, then there are 2 ways to raise it. I am also 6'-4" and my mirror sits almost flush with the headliner.
    The mirror is attached to the windshield, so technically when they replace the windshield they have to remove and re-attach it, so you should be able to remove and re-attach it higher without replacing the windshield - just figure out how they do it - I assume double sided tape. (I have not done this - not needed)
    Also,
    The stalk has two pivot points - one at the windshield and one at the mirror, so you can swivel the one at the windshield up as high as possible and then tilt the mirror back down at the swivel behind the mirror. That's how mine is and as said above it is almost at the headliner.
    I tried to take pictures but the way it sits in the sun I was not able to get anything without a lot of glare.

    I had a mirror relocation bracket in my tacoma that a member at tacomaworld.com used to make and sell. It moved the mirror mount up by about 2". Tried it on my Tundra and there wasn't enough clearance between it and the headliner to work easily. I'll have to revisit that if I can find where I stashed that bracket.

    Also, the adhesive for the bracket is a 2 part epoxy that you can buy at any auto parts store.
