    Hi all! New guy here with some questions. I recently purchased a 2005 Tacoma DC. I plan to use this truck as a daily driver, but would also like to use it for light fourwheeling and hunting. I would like to run
    265 75 16 tires, with chains occasionally. I would also like to install some type of plate bumper up front that will house my Mile Marker SI9500 winch. My truck already has an A.R.E. Z-series topper on it. Also I tow a trailer with a raft on it occasionally, total weight between 1500 and 2000lbs if that makes any difference? I don’t want to spend a ton of money on this, but don’t want to buy junk either.
    My questions are what type of lift will I need to clear the larger tires with chains? What will I need to do to support the extra weight of the bumper and winch on the front? Will Bilstein 5100’s all the way around with a 1.5” AAL in the rear work? Thanks in advance for your help.
