Looking for a small lift and need ideas

I am looking for a small lift or leveling kit for my 2012 Tacoma. I am going to be running 265/75/16 tires and am thinking a 2" front lift and a 1" lift in the rear will give me plenty of clearance. I was thinking of either 5100 in the front and an add a leaf in the rear or maybe just spacers in the front. What would you suggest and why? Any rig pics with a similar setup?

Bilstein 5100's. Or OME coils/shocks. Add in an AAL for the rear.

See link for why Bilstein's are better than spacers:

Ventura county down to la. Where u at?
My bad OP for, kinda thread jacking. But my original point was that this setup would be perfect for what you're looking for...not too pricey, yet quality.
Hey Caloy just Pm me if you want.
And OP whatever you decide to do, stay away from spacers...please.
