5100's up front for leveling. Cheapest option.

Welcome to Tacoma World. The best advise I can offer is to read the stickies in the suspension forum to find out what suits your needs and wallet. It sounds like you would probably be happy with the bilstein 5100's.

You can get bilstein 5100 adjustable shocks for fairly cheap. Adjust them to 2.5" and you're leveled/lifted a bit. You could also run 285/70/17 tires no problem.

5100's in the rear and if you want some more lift, an AAL from Wheeler's is a nice easy way to go

im leaning toward the 5100s instead of the tuff country leveling kit, looks like it would be about the same price, now to find the cheapest price on the shocks
