Need help deciding on OME lift kit vs Bilstein lift kit

I've been scouring TW for information on suspensions and I I'm stuck between the OME lift kit an the the Bilstein lift kit (both from Toytec). My truck is my daily drive. I use it occasionally for sand and mud, but mostly sand. I want to add a plate bumper as well. Anyone with either kit have any input as to which one would better suit my needs?

OME! Get the shocks & springs designed to go together and give lift.
885s without a spacer should give you around 2.5" to 2.75" without a plate bumper & add a spacer when you add a bumper.
A lot of people like the Billies but if you want more than 1.6" of lift Billies pre-load the spring which decreases ride quality.
