Good places to start for lifts and tires/wheels. As far as tire size, here's a handy chart:

From experience, I would say the largest you'd want to run with the 5.2 and 3.73's are 32's. I think you might be interested in the IRO front to rear swap, maybe even getting all four springs new since it will fit in your budget. Upgrade it with some high quality shocks like mx6, and get JKS discos for the front sway bar.

I already have a 2" bb. have any of you ever heard of leaving the bb on there when you put the new lift on? is that safe?

You can add lift springs and still use a BB. Not sure what the limit is on a ZJ before you need to start looking at arms though.
