Shrockworks Front Bumper/Suspension Combo

Greetings fellow 4R enthusiasts

I was fortunate enough to pick up a 2004 4R SR5 V8 4WD with 112k miles for $8500 a few months back, in great shape. Iíve done some minor stuff to it myself, but am now at the point where I finally want to get a Shrockworks front bumper (no winch for now), new wheels/tires, and a suspension lift.

I am a novice when it comes to trucks; this is really my first dive into doing something like this. I want to get into off-roading more aggressively and def want the thing to just look cool in general.

What I was looking for from the 4R Prodigies out there is shopping advice/installation advice:

1. Suspension lift selection - with the net of plus ~110 lbs on the front due to bumper, what do you recommend for a lift kit? I found the below on YotaMafia; seems like it makes sense for the front heavy setup but I am all ears for suggestions. Going for 2 - 2.5Ē ideally; just suspension lift, no body

4th Gen 4Runner Dobinsons Lift Kit (2003-2009) - YotaMafia

2. Any recommendations on order of installations?
Ie, lift/tires first then bumper, vice versa, or all them shits at once. Iím having a custom shop by me handle all this

Any other advice generally speaking is welcome. Thanks in advance!

After much deliberation, the main reason is that it includes a front skid plate

650lbs front coils for mostly normal onroad use.
700lbs. Front coils if you like to push speeds offroad.

The shocks effect ride too.

Shrockworks are just frikn sweet too.
...right i am biased, makes me smile every time i look at my t4r.

Ditch that front swaybar if you want a better front independent feel.
IMO real nice with the 700lbs front coils and no front sway bar.
Firm onroad, kicks ass offroad.

Elka is nice too.
