Your options are basically like such:
1) Crank the torsion bars
2) 3" spindle lift
3) 3" body lift
4) Start spending crazy money (solid axle swap, etc.)

You can even combine the lifts if you like.

Then you want to get a 3 inch Body Lift. And you can run tire size up to 33s. Now on the subject of Rims, what are you looking to get?

Yea, I'm looking at getting some black Dick Cepek wheels with Duratrac tires... Since you said you don't do much mudding, the duractracs seem like a good tire perhaps?

Most of that 3K will be going to your tires & wheels.

A body lift is well, a body lift. A spindle lift is a suspension lift.

Body lift will cost you about $200, spindle lift will cost you about $400.

Spindle lift is better IMHO, but costs more.

Yes get a 3 inch BL. Summit Racing has a good one. http://www.summitracing.com/parts/SU...ry=Year%7c2005
Im buying the same one. And Shop around for rims. 5 x 4.5 in. is your bolt pattern. Dont go too expensive if you plan on off roading alot. They dont like that. And You can run 33s with a 3 inch BL just fine. they shouldnt rub.
