Tacoma suspension swap onto GX470, thoughts?

Hey there guys, been a lurker for some time, been doing a lot of reading on suspension upgrades and reading up on what will work and what won't work. I have an opportunity to get a set of fox shocks 2.0 with less than 5k miles for $600 with mostly highway driving according to the owner. The donor is from a 2016 Tacoma 4WD. I plan to do a mild 1-2 inch lift and mainly use it for my commute, light trails for fishing and camping trips but most of my drive will come from 90% commuting. My GX is stock, no plans to add any heavy gear or bumpers, just replacing the rear OEM shocks that are going out. I hear that the Tacoma suspension would bolt right up front of our chassis but that the rear would require a new eyelet bushing in order to have it bolt up. I understand that there are several configurations I can go; toytec ultimates, dobsons, bilstein and etc, but for the price and with some modifications, would this be a bad deal/idea? Thanks in advance

Ended up getting them, with around 5k, they're pretty much brand new and couldn't be more happier. Just need to replace the eyelet bushing in the rears then throw them on. Looking to get a 2 inch lift and level out. My rig, 06 Gx470 Sport, all stock. Future plans, 285/70-75/17 Falken AT3s and swap wheels for a wider offset.

Im coming from a 2017 with a shit ton of mods - was the suspension a straight forward install?
