2012 PreRunner DC Lift

Guys, I am pretty new to lift kits in general. I had a 2009 Dodge Ram 2500 Cummins with the Daystar Leveling kit and Bilstein 5100s. That is my extent. I got rid of it because at 34,000 miles it was in the shop for the 8th time and every time it was something new. I just got sick of it.

Saying all that I traded it in on a 2012 Tacoma DC PreRunner last Spring. I ordered the Rough Country lift kit in January and was all set to install it when I started reading the the bad reviews on any block/spacer kits.

I do not go off road except to the hunting land or some dirt roads. I baby my vehicles, just like my Cummins (why it baffles me all the issues I had), and the lift is purely for looks. Saying that I do not want something that will create major issues or damage going forward. I bought the 8 yr/125 mile extended warranty to make sure I kept everything covered.

I do pull a boat about every other weekend during spring and summer and a trailer with 4-wheeler in fall to hunting land. Each trip is about 125-150 miles round trip so not sure if that makes a difference either.

My question is what is the preference for doing a spindle front lift vs an OME or Bilstein lift? I am looking for 3" and have read the forums and searched for days. A lot love the spindles but they seem to do more offroading. It seems price wise both options seem to be pretty close. Spindles with lines are around $1100. Bilstein/OME with new springs and UCAs are $11-1200. Reading about the grinding and backspacing issues is the one negative I have seen on the splindles. I would prefer to run stock rims and bigger tires. I have the 16" TRD Wheels and would like to just put bigger wheels on them. I like the stock wheel look with bigger tires.

Also, would I need brake lines for a 3" Coilover lift and complete Dakar rear leafe set? Also would I need the shims for my rear axle?

Thanks guys, I already have learned a lot by searching.
