    There are a number of post on this and other forums to help you decide. Your question is way too general for someone to say you should go with brand x.

    No! stay away from spacer lifts. Is the OME lift in your budget? Its the one from toytec. Thats a nice complete lift.

    Yes it should. I dont remember if the top plates come with it or not. But if you add an offroad bumper and/or winch you want to get the 886 coils instead of the 885's given you have a doublecab.

    I do have the arb bumper and i'm about to instal the winch, so if i buy the OME i will go with the 886 coils. Anybody else knows if i can buy any good lift kits beside OME with (around) 500$ ?

    A cheap good way is to buy the adjustable front bilstein shocks and set them at 2.5" of lift. These go with your stock coils. Then you can buy the rear ones as well and still have money left over. Just another suggestion. Lots of members here do this.

    Will the Bilstein 5100-Racing Series would do the job? If YES, do i need to buy something else?

    I talk with the guys from downsouth motorsports and for Bilstein 5100 you don't need anything else just the socks, but they recomend the for the rear to AAL. Is the cheapst way beater than the spacers .

    Depends on what setting you set the front shocks at.

    I bought the OME lift kit from toytec, but if somebody else read this I recommend to take also a look at SKYJACKER.
