The bottom line is, for $800 the closest thing to comfortable that you will get IS the 5100s. A spacer lift, which is the only alternative in your price range, is much harsher of a ride. I have had one myself at one point and I can safely say the ride was absolutely terrible. The 5100s at 2.5 are a much better over all ride.
If you are set on going 3 inches, Old Man Emu (OME) would probably be your best bet for getting near your price range. You can take a look at wheelersoffroad.com
and get an idea of how much the front susp. will run you. When you go over 2.5 you WILL need a set of aftermarket UCAs to get your alignment back into spec. If you fail to do this, your truck will wander when driving down the highway and your tires will wear poorly.
