Lifting a truck

I have a ford ranger xlt with 14" tires, I'd like to mount 16" tires and raise the truck up a few more inches. I understand that a few things happen when changing tire size such as the speedometer readings, but what is the easiest way to lift the truck without major modifications on a limited budget? I priced rims and tires at Pep Boys and figured it would run me about 250 for 4 rims and tires. I have no clue about changing the shocks/springs or what is needed to raise the truck up. This mod, is stricly for work purposes, no serious off roading, and Im not interested in a sporty look or whatever. I just need more ground clearance and a higher suspension. Any thoughts of my best posible route? Thanx.
