If you had a few thousand dollars to drop in your Yota...what would you do??

So, after reading through a bunch of threads...Looks like I'm wanting a new suspension...to a certain degree. So here is my idea:
---I got a 1st Gen Yota, I wanna replace my shocks. I was thinking of Fox 2.5 coil over, I already have some All Pro UCAs, and have OME leaf springs in the rear. And wanted something a little more performance wise for shocks in the rear also. So with this set-up what would you guys suggest?---

any info will be greatly appreciated. thanks fellow Taco owners.

If I dropped a few thousand dollars in my truck I would... pick it up.
3in lift and 285s would do it for me.

Some friends of mine race Baja w/ Kings, and that helped my decision, too, although I despise their blue color.
Deffently appreciate the info.

ya, so it looks like I may go with the Fox 2.5 Coil overs in the front..should I get a new lower control arm?

And I still don't know what I should get for the rear. I looked on AllPro.com and found they have Walker Evans...does anyone have any experiances with those shocks??

I'm more leaning towards the Mid Travel and long travel suspension.
