Deciding between two lift kits...

I have a 2000 PreRunner extra cab. I wanted a little lift and a level look to go with it. I bought 31's about a year ago so I don't want to get new tires for a while. I've been reading threads on here for a while and I think I am hung up on two lift options

1) Bilstein 1500's all the way with the front set at 1.75 (or 2.5?) with the AAL in the rear

2) 3" lift kit with OME front coils and rear lift options from toytec

I was leaning toward the OME because I do haul some heavy lawn equipment in my truck and the rear sags down quite a bit. I was wondering if I put the stiffer coils in the rear if that would help me out with that.

Overall though I want a lift that gives me a little lift with the level look. I don't want the spacers lift even though I don't go off roading.

So should I get the Bilstein shocks all around with the AAL in the rear? What should I set the front shocks at if I want to level it out? I've heard people say 1.75 and other 2.5...but some people say the 2.5 is a stiff ride.

I think 1.75" in the front should level it out with the TSB springs. If you set the Billys to 2.5", you'll probably need an AAL in the back to keep it level.
