Downshift makes a great point. The bigger tire and increased height will look cool but will have a neg affect to overall road performance, especially if you're running the original carbs.

1of40 is right.
Given your anticipated usage, I wouldn't lift, but perhaps just refresh with fresh stock springs and Bilteins.
Tires: 265/75-16 will improve appearance without creating any additional height.
Step in to your truck might be important for your family.
