Taking a new route...help with lift!

I'm new to the lifts. But just recently I been deciding on ditching the entire lowering/wheel scheme with my truck in order to change to a slightly lifted/aggresive tire/bigger wheel combination. Especially with my KingQuad 700 in the back on the weekends, my lo-pros aren't enjoying the type of terrain that I'm giving them. Plus I can sell my wheels and get a kick-*** set of tires and wheels.

But with my truck, a 2004 Edge 2WD, what is the easiest/cheapest way to get a few inches of lift? I'm looking to run maybe a 33/12.50/20 or something in that order so what do you guys reccomend (sp?)? Also are there any pictures around here of a truck with my idea?

Any help would be much appreciated!

Im thinking about doing 3in spindles and running 285/55/20's. That comes out close to 32.5x11x5
