first off hes driving a 97...
your cheapest "looks" option, is a body lift. around $200, and a day job with a few friends to install. this will keep the truck ride stock, and allow you to put larger tires on and have the lifted look.
second is suspension. you can go cheap and get a few inches like this :
or you can go big and get 6" lift.
its up to you. if your don't feel comfortable installing it, find a off road shop near you and ask them to quote you on the lift you like, (say a 4") installed. so they can do the work and you know its done properly and safely.
for a 2" front lift, go with this.
