So I want to lift my new 2012 DC LB 4x4 approximately 3". I need some help from you guys that know what your talking about when it comes to this, because I'm still pretty confused. I want to make sure everything I've read this past week fully sunk in and I get the right parts before I go further in debt.

Light Racing Upper Control Arms (05 & UP Tacoma)
Approximately 95% of my driving is on pavement. I dont/wont do any extreme off road driving. Just uneven hilly dirt/gravel/sand roads when hunting and camping. My questions are does this kit seem like a decent kit to get the 3 inches up front i want to be able to run bigger tires? Do I have to buy aftermarket rims as I would like to keep the stock 17" rims for now and just upgrade the tires to bigger duratracs. Do I need the front differential drop kit? If at a later date I decide to get an after market off road bumper, is it just as easy as changing the coils to the heavier duty ones or is there more too it? Do I need to buy the extended rear brake lines or the driveshaft carrier barring drop kit? Are these parts compatible with each other (this UCA will work with these coil overs)? Am I missing anything else I should buy with this stuff? Appreciate any input.
For what it's worth, I just came back from a off road bro shop in orange county and they only wanted to sell me icons which I know are pretty close to top of the line stuff...but it was $2600 out the door installed for just front coil overs and icons new non billet UCA. Im not going to be racing in the Baja 20000, hell I probably won't ever drive over a curb. I'm open to hear your opinions on this OME setup or anything else. Toytec ultimate lift with 5100s?
