In all honesty, unless you plan on lots of wheeling in some tricky terrain, a 2" bb on 31's will suit you fine. Its a Lil extra height and will allow you bigger tires and won't break your bank. That's why it's a budget boost lol. You'll be able to tell the difference as soon as you sit in it. My original bb was a set of procomp es1000s from 4wheelparts.com, I spent 35 a shock and 59 for all 4 pucks. So for about $200 I had my 2 inch lift. 4Wheelparts has some pretty good deals on shocks. Check them out.

I'm only getting the 2" pucks, do I need to buy all new shocks too?

You don't even need shocks, just take them off and ride on the coils.

Would it be okay if I just left the shocks on?

Dear lord, please leave the shocks on. But you should get longer shocks to fit the added height. I'm not sure you should even be tampering with this until you educate yourself more on what the parts do and how the ZJ's suspension works.
