    It could be done. You probably won't like it and it more than likely will ride terribly. Rear blocks and spacers are the route you're looking at for your budget.
    If you don't mind, what are you looking to achieve? Functionality or aesthetics? Either is fine, it's your money and your opinion.

    Tacomaworld is here to help you spend those $'s.

    Daystar makes a spacer for the front that bolts on top of the struts and then blocks for the back. 225$ for the whole lift. I ran it for about 2 years and for the price it worked out good

    You can do bilstein 5100 struts, with your stock coils and top hat, and a small block with u bolts for the rear. Struts are like 210-240$ on Ebay, blocks can be found for around $50, if you want longer shocks, you can go to the parts store and get shocks for a 92 Toyota pickup, my buddy got the Monroes, they're 4" longer and bolt in and are like 20$ each. Best bang for your buck right there
