Cool Need help with a lift

Hey guys. I'm completely new to the lift game but as I do have some money saved up, I think I'm ready to buy one. I don't need some hardcore lift, just something to give the truck a more mean stance and make it look good. I'd be doing a little off-roading here and there possibly, but nothing major by any means. From what I've read, your best bet for a first timer, basic lift is to roll with Bilstein's 5100. I've read alot, and I'm trying to understand it the best I can. If I get 5100's for the front and set them to 2.5, I have options for the rear. I can get coil overs or Bilstein's + an AAL right? I'm trying my best to understand from the posts ive been reading. If anyone has suggestions, I'd love to hear them. Essentially I'm looking for a relatively cheap, basic lift.
I really appreciate anything you guys can contribute. Thanks in advance.
-Drew

coilovers go in front. your choices for the rear are aal, new leaf packs, or a shackle lift
