What suspension should i get?

Im looking for a SUSPENSION lift for the front of my ranger. heres where I'm at, I want that nice prerunner looking lift where its angled up a little at the front, so would just a front suspension lift accomplish that? Im also getting some fiberglass front fenders locally so the plan is bigger tires, around the 31 33 range. so as far as the rear goes, should a normal 1-3" body lift give the back enough room for the tires?
I know "cheap" doesnt match with "prerunner", but top of the line expensive isnt what I'm after right now, so can any of you guys tell me what im gunna need to accomplish all of this from a stock ranger, and maybe even point me towards some "affordable" kits.
I have a 2wd 3.0 auto extended cab 94 ranger

I'm not an expert on the I-beam Rangers, but if I were you, I'd be looking at lift springs and spindles up front, and springs in the back. It's much cheaper to suspension lift a 2WD, and if you're already getting into the front, the difference between some rear springs and a body lift isn't really that much.

Edit: I don't think you can get just lift springs for those, now that I think about it. However, I know you can get a full lift for your truck for under $500 that's about 4" front and rear.

i would go with spindles in the front (4 inches are usually on amazon) and maybe domes springs. i don't know anything about i-beams but if they have coils you could had a coil spacer if the 4 inch spindles and springs doesn't do it for you
