Good luck finding a new lift in that hight for 200 a used one wouldn't even caust that little. Try like 500+ for a safe lift at that hight

you'd be lucky to get a good pair of adjustable track bars for that cost. we're not even talking about coil springs, shocks, sway bar links, etc. yet.

You won't get a quality 3.5" lift for that price. What you will get is a mismatched hodge podge of various parts like front to rear swaps or ford F150 coils. Either way you will need front and rear adjustable track bars and that will cost more than 250 just for those. Save your money or look into a 2" BB with some new shocks.

You can get a budget boost pretty cheap. If you go with 2" you can keep your current shocks. If you want 3.5" it will cost you a little more. Do it right or don't do it at all. You will regret going cheap fairly soon after it is done.

[QUOTE="Thelt;14672895"]You can get a budget boost pretty cheap. If you go with 2" you can keep your current shocks. Could I get a 3" Puck with just shocks and the pucks?

It's pretty simple really. Whenever you lift a ZJ and do not use the correct parts for the height then you are going to have problems. You can probably get away with using the stock shocks for a little but they are going to ride like crap and eventually get destroyed because they will be too short.
