Perfect lift to clear 33's

I want to get enough lift to fit some 33x12.5 muds. I planned on 3-5", but I'm new to the truck scene, and don't know enough about lifts. What all will I need? Are some kits "more complete" than others? I've been told to lift the minimum amount to clear the tires, and this makes sense to me. I don't understand the difference between the $400 complete kits, and the $1400 kits 4wheelparts wants to sell me. I would love detailed opinions on what works best for around (or under) $1000. Whatever you can spare! :)
My truck stats are below. This is my daily driver, and weekend toy. I drive mostly trails, some mud and snow, with some dabbling in rocks. I don't flex a ton, but want moderate articulation and flex possible.
I appreciate your comments and opinions.

hey man. OK, to keep it under $1000, you do have some options. the least expensive route would be some spacers for the front coils. try Cornfed Suspensions. He is a member out of Virginia. Can't remember his web address, right now. For the rear, you could do longer shackles or an add-a-leaf. You will also need longer shocks in the rear. You will get mixed opinions on which route is better for the rear. Then, you could do a body lift, either 2 or 3 inches for the additional amount of lift. The $1400 lift you are hearing about is mostly likely the Pro Comp lift that replaces the stock crossmember. This will keep the CV angles at the stock ride height. Dig around in the "suspension" part of the forum and ask questions if you don't understand. There are lots of people willing to help. Put together a day or two and get some help with the install of everything. Furnish the pizza, beverage of your choice, make some friends, learn about your truck, and save alot on the cost of labor. Good luck and hope this helps.
