idler and tensioner pulley bearing size?

Howdy All.

My son and I are repairing a "will be his first car" 2002 TJ 2.5 on a shoe string budget. I know I can change the idler and tensioner pulleys with new assemblies but I'd like to buy just the bearings to:
1. Save money
2. Teach him how to press out and press in a new bearing

Anyone know the bearing size(s) that each pulley needs?

I'm thinking I can probably buy two new bearings for just a couple bucks each.... of course the FSM or the full parts lists do not show the bearing sizes.

Thanks to All!!!! Great site!!!

PS - I've searched and searched this site before asking but have come up with no bearing size info.
