depends on your price range and the type of wheeling you want to do.

X2. Check out the OME full suspension lift kit. That should be in your price range.

4wheelparts and some Les Schwabs also do 5100's and install them for pretty cheap

I ordered Bilstein 5100 shocks for front and back, add a leaf for rear, wheel spacers for all 4 wheels, front diff drop kit, all for under 800 and installation is really easy.

need some help

I want to put a set of nittos 185/75/16 on my taco was going to lift it with 4 5100s at 2.5 with some back spacers on the rear tires would that be enough or should I just stick to the 165/75/16? Any suggestions trying to stay around 500 on lift

If you want to fit 285's, you can do it with the 5100's at 2.5, wheel spacers in the front, and some wheel well trimming. you will probably also have to chop the cab mount.
