OME vs Bilsteins with 5150's in rear

I've been putting off making a thread in here for a while. Mainly because I feel like a lot of questions get asked repeatedly (I feel like that in the audio section of the forum).

So I'm wanting to go with roughly a 2.5" lift. As I understand it 3" or higher requires new UCA's and that's not something I want to do. I go offroading fairly often and definitely enjoy myself when I'm there. My limiting factor on trails has ALWAYS been ground clearance which is why I'm wanting a lift.

Adam (achirdo) has been educating me on lifts and such and I've come down to what I feel like are two good options. My truck is a 2009 Double Cab short bed 4WD.

The Bilstein 5100 Kit from Toytec but with 5150's in the rear for more travel. Or the OME Kit from Toytec.

With the 5150's in the rear both kits come out to about the same price. What are the main differences and which would you have and why? Or, is there a better way to go?

*I'll be doing extended brake lines on whatever kit I go with.

My vote still goes to the OME in the front and 5150s in the rear.
