    I plan on off roading about 20 to 30% of the time, but nothing too serious just some fun trails and messing around in the sand a little bit; I would also like to put about a 2.5- 3inch lift on it

    With that being said, what are your recomendations on what I should do and please explain what they are such as bilstein ect. and their effects (sorry for the ignorance this will be my first very own tacoma)---Thanks

    Light bar and bumper guard, 3/16 steel skid plates for engine, tranny and transfer box, OME 881 springs with 5100 shocks at mid clip. AAL in rear. Positraction rear diff.
    To keep the cost down I'd recommend Bilstein 5100 shocks set for the 2.5 lift on the front. Since most Tacomas have a weak rear I'd suggest an add a leaf to level it out and give the back a little more load capability. You may need to go to a Bilstein 5125 rear shock but check it out first. http://www.wheelersoffroad.com/ or http://downsouthmotorsports.com/ can help you.
