2.5" Lift

I want to lift my Taco 2.5" (which recommends 265/75/R16), but i just bought new BFG KO 265/70/R16's less than a year ago so its got a little more tread than the stock tire did. Anyone know if this will look bad if i leave 265/70's on? im worried about showing too much frame, but the tire guy said its only 1/4 inch different. My other plan was to just get a 1" or 2" leveling kit for the front. i don't want to mod it too much because i do alot of hwy driving, but i want to lift it some so it doesn't look like every other Taco in the city. Any thoughts?

How will it show too much frame? Only getting a body lift will show frame. Do you want to lift just the front or both the front and rear? What's your budget?

I guess i worded that wrong...im just wondering if ppl think a lift would look stupid w/o getting bigger tires and keeping the 265/70's on it. I'd like to lift front and rear but not if it will look gay. I saw a rough country 2.5" online for $239, but i will be paying somebody to put it on for me so add installation and alignment. I'd spend more but i don't go offroading as much anymore.
