Yet another lift / tire question...

Hey guys, I am sure there are probably a million threads out there regarding this question. So, feel free to call me an idiot and link another thread.
Anyway, here is some background... I have a 1998 Sahara (4.0L I6, 5-Speed Manual) that is mostly stock. I bought it as the third owner back in late April. It is my first Jeep and I have some ideas for it. I have some Gambler 15x8 wheels on it, wrapped with Michelin LTX M/S 31x9.5 R15 tubeless tires. I have a Dana 30/186MM Front Axle & Dana M35/194MM Rear Axle with a 3.73 ratio.

I would like to put some 33's on it. Is this possible / sustainable with my current axles? Will they fit on my wheels? Will I need a lift kit & how large? I would assume it is less than a 2" - 3" kit, since I have 31s and they fit fine. Do I need to get a new speedo gear?

I actually would really like to put a lift kit on too, at the same time I upgrade the tires. What brand of lift kits do you guys suggest? If I do a kit less than 3" , will I need to replace / upgrade / change anything else (SYE, T-case drop, new driveshafts, etc)?

Thanks for helping out a new Jeeper. It is much appreciated!!
