    I found those two lift kits are very popular for Tacoma lifting and they have similar prices.
    Which one will be the best choice for my 05 TRD OFFROAD? Daily driving most and nothing really heavy to pull.

    live in Saskatchewan Canada, who knows some local shop here will install the lift kit for me even did buy from them? Any shop will ship them products to Canada with reasonable shipping costs?

    Pro comp is cheap uses dual tube shock where as 5100s are monotube monotue is much more efficient at cooling thus will ride difference the only difference is preload (5100s) vs a longer coil (pro comp) the ride should be better still with billied because of large spring rate of pro comp hope this helps go with Billies my.02

    Sorry stupid iPhone meant to say billies will ride better due to more efficient dampening of the shock
