Rookie Lift Advice

I recently purchased a 97 TJ that was totally stock. Shortly after I purchased it, I came across a good deal on some 32x11.50 Mud tires that I couldn't resist. I had planned to lift the Jeep before I got the tires but I couldn't stand driving around with the stock wheels any longer!

I have the new wheels on currently without a lift and they rub pretty good on turns etc. I would like to lift my Jeep as cheaply as possible without compromising looks or performace. Would 2" be enough? Can anyone provide advice as to what exactly I need. I've seen some used suspension lifts, but I really have no idea of what I need (new springs etc.). Any advice anyone could provide would be greatly appreciated.
