......what lift kit could one put on as to not look weird or out of place without doing a serious money makeover? In other words, want to keep stock tires and wheels for now and maybe add 2.5" or so lift.

Any particular brand over another that has a great reputation?

Stock tires/wheels do not need a lift. The tires will look tiny. If anything, most I would suggest is a level kit.

If you want to "look" lifted, flat fenders to open up the wheel wells.

A level kit will give you a slight lift that still looks ok with stock tires and wheels. I have always had luck with teraflex.

The max on stock tires is a 1.5" lift. Otherwise you look like the Jeep that likes to skip leg day.

The Teraflex performance leveling kit is great. I highly recommend putting on aftermarket shocks to upgrade your ride/drive while you're at it. The Rancho 5000X is very economical and a great shock.

I have the 3.5" MetalCloak Game Changer lift. The tires are still stock and while they do look a bit on the small side I can deal with it for a few thousand more miles.
