'88 ranger 2wd lift?

Id like to lift my truck as cheaply as possible I use it in fields and trails going to fishing spots alot so some bigger tires would be great. id like to stay away from body lifts. i plan on putting on a custom built flatbed as the stock bed is beat up and the tailgate is gone. id like to fit 31s or 32s and have a stiffer suspension as mine is currently way too soft.

I am not sure about the front, but the rear an add a leaf will make it stiff.
The front is TTB or something along the lines of twin I beams right?

Seeing as your truck is 14 years old, go to the junk yard and get some newer leafs off a newer wrecked truck. Heck, if you get lucky enough swap the front axel under there too.
