Noob 1st gen lift questions

Hey guys, I have a 2000 Tacoma PreRunner with 265/75/15 tires and stock suspension from what I can tell. I want to get a plate bumper for the front but i won't be adding a winch. What would I need to buy/install in order to keep my ride from bogging down due to the extra weight up front? Can I just buy new OME coils and keep the stock struts? 881's or 882's?

This vehicle won't see too much hardcore off road use but does drive on fire roads etc. Any help is appreciated!

I'm gonna be installing this: http://www.ebay.com/itm/130713060102...84.m1438.l2649
Obviously that's just for the front end, but that should give me at least 3 extra inches and with the diff drop kit included I shouldn't need to worry about putting extra stress on my u-joints. I should be ordering the kit within the next week or two, so I'll let you know how it goes.
