My question, what would be the best parts to configure together to get the best mechanics and performace out of it, but yet not be an extreme build either?
mild drop for performance would be my build. SLammed would be brendoballs or phildammit

3/4 on our trucks really isn't that aggressive of a drop you wont scrape unless its a really big dip or driveway but you should be perfectly fine. 3/4 will definitely give a much better stance than stock. if you plan on staying with a stock diameter size tire you will be okay no rubbing or anything. You will need to notch the frame unless you like riding on bricks. With the notch the ride will be as if factory. Id suggest upgrading the rear shocks to some drop shocks or even qa1 ajudustable ones, front struts upgrade to some Bilstien 4600s, Djm upper and lower arms and 4 inch blocks. DJM blocks are fine to use unless you want so real good quality then get street taco blocks. (You will be waiting several month before receiving them). If you want a 3.5/4.5. You can run 1/2" spindle spacers with your djm, and 4.5" blocks or a combo with 4x4 leafs and 3 inch blocks. Hope this helps out

Don't trust him he knows nothing of tacomas lol nah, right there pretty much suggested drop is what I got minus the front spindle spacers. Which I have but don't have installed and if you really quanta do it right the first time just get coilovers for the front instead of the bilsteins and coils. That's what I i would do.
