Re-Lifting my 97 Tacoma 4x4

I just bought this truck, and luckily, it is in great condition so I am highly motivated to put together a nice little daily driver/ weekend warrior. I have been putting a side some money to re do the lift and finally have a nice chunk in the bank, no not long travel money haha. I just want something subtle, that will give the truck a nice stance and would be acceptable for the trails we have here in Florida. My future plans also involve a rear locker, ARB bumper and a few other things, but I have that part figured out. What I really need help with, is the lift part. Right now the truck has Front spacers, beat up shocks and shackles in the rear. Let's scratch that stuff and start over. I am thinking the OME kit, Toytec Ultimate Kit with 5100s/Coilovers or maybe just the 5100s with a diff drop kit and a rear AAL. Although, I think my leafs area little on the saggy side. You guys tell me what you think, here are some photos of what I am working with. Any feedback and links would be helpful!

OME with Dakars. Perhaps 883x if you plan to run a plate bumper and winch.

The only way he can run OME is if he wants to fabricate new hangers.

95-97 have different leafs than 98-04.

Check out Wheelers 5 leaf spring pack.

Hmm I know they are different lengths but Wheelers advertises the Dakars for 95.5 to 04 Tacoma???
