    35's wont fit with only a 3 inch lift...you need to go 6" for that.
    yes the toytec lift is good, ome is good too...its all gonna depend on what you can spend

    In my opinion, forget the 35's on a Tacoma. Those tires are way too big for the truck. Get a really good 3" lift and some 33"s are you will be set. Look into Fox or Icon for really good coilovers and components

    +1 on getting the Fox or Icon coilovers. But if you can spend whatever you want then get the Camburg or Total Chaos long travel kit.

    the add a leaf pack is for the rear leaf springs and will give you 1.5 in lift in the back

    the front coilover can be adjusted to give close to a 3 in lift only if you are 2WD but it will be a rough and harsh ride. you wont want to crank them down that far

    EDIT: just noticed you are 4WD so you will be limited as to how far you can crank the CO's down to give you more lift cause too much will put alot of stress on your CV's and that is bad you can fit 285's on there just fine w/out having the max 3 in lift height
