With the XJ(and with previous Tacos) I could get lift by putting a longer shackle on, that is not possible with the 05+ Tacoma. Here is a picture of a guys Taco from TTORA. He has a custom bumper that gives a clear view of the leafs.
I think that when Toyota designed the 05, they tried to make it as proprietary as possible. Look at the wheel fitment issues for example.
(BTW, this guy has a really cool bumper!!!!)
