I believe 235/75R15s were the largest OEM size you could order on 93-97 4wd rangers, this was 1 inch larger then the largest OEM size you could order on a 2wd. The 4wds do not sit any higher. I use to have a 2wd 94, it sat at the same height as any stock 4wd from the same year.

That's for the front, and for the rear, get chevy shackles and stock blocks from a 2wd F150 (one inch taller than stock ranger block). New u=bolts for the rear and you're good to go. Looking at probably $150 total plus an alignment if you need it. Thats the CHEAP route, which i would NOT do if yuo plan on Daily driving it. Otherwise, get yourself some leveling coils and some shackles for the rear. Good luck and happy wrenching.

Actually 2wd ranger coils are taller than 4wd coils due to the thinner I-beam in them.
and the heavier stiffer one in the 4wd lifts the 2wd trucks. been there done that sorta thing.
