If you almost never go offroad, start with the S/C and URD kit. That will eat up most of your budget, but you will be happy with your very capable, very fast Taco. If you get a lift and tires just for the looks, you will still be wanting the S/C. Especially if you jump to 285/75/16 tires. That is a big enough tire size jump from stock to justify regearing, and since you're looking at Ivan Stewart wheels and arguably the best suspension lift available, I doubt you'll find lift+tires+wheels plus regearing for under $3000. Others may dissagree, but I would rather have a truck that looks like a lab and runs like a cheetah, than a truck that looks like a rotweiler and runs like a pregnant hippo.
