Performance Accesories 3" body lift. Should cost you $100 or less. Expect to take a 3 day weekend if your truck is a little rusty and if your doing it solo. Would reccomend seeking a qualified freind to help.

My friend did it to his 1991 bronco in a day or two. Looks pretty good, but not quite liek a good ol' suspension. It cost him $150 from PEP Boys. The noticable change is the 3" gap between the front/rear bumbers and the body. They sell cover up kits for the gap.
However, the kit isn't the cheapest way. Get some hockey pucks, drill holes in them. get the appropriate length of bolt from Home Depot (never use Lowes, they suck) and mount your pucks as high as you want the lift.
I cannot see a Ranger looking right with a body lift. Some vehicles can pull it off (all can once you have over 8" of suspension lift) without any other additions.

The kit for a 94 should have bumper lifting brackets. I have seen it done and it looks very nice.

cool, cause i just downsized my tires from 265/75R15's to 235/75R15's, basically cause i need to get better gas mileage and smaller tires were cheaper. so now the truck rides a little lower to the ground. and i dont like low riders

Some of the hardcore offroad guys don't care for rough country. They prefer superlift and skyjacker. Some people local to me have their kits and I have never heard complaints. Go to their website www.roughcountry.com. You may find a better price. At the bottom of their hompage you can ask the "answerman" a question. They have always returned my email the next day with quality answers for all my questions. I'm looking to finish my 2" kit with the frontend parts to their 2.5" kit.
