A ZJ is a unibody vehicle. Meaning that the frame and body are one peice. Very strong and light but no body lifts. If you want a cheap lift start looking at Rough Country, Zone, or a Budget Boost (BB).

Your ZJ is a unibody vehicle. There is no body lift possibilities available for these vehicles.

You should research a "budget boost" coil spring spacer lift.

There is no situation that cannot be improved with a small but well-placed explosive.

That's too funny, we were typing similar responses simultaneously.

Body lift is 100% possible on a unibody vehicle.

Here is one on an XJ.

Not everything. If the guy wanted a framed 4x4 he should have purchased one. Doing that adds no value and appears to be very time consuming and labor/ parts intensive.

Interesting but he could just have gone back in time and gotten a FSJ then.....Full Frame, live axles on leaf springs, etc. If you can find one in good enough condition (ie no serious rust and interior complete) they are nice vehicles to restore etc.
