"Cheap" is a word that should never be used to describe "lift" for a ZJ beyond a budget boost. As stated, anything more than 2" gets pricey if you do it right. And a locker makes way more difference than a lift. I wish I would have locked mine before I lifted it. I probably would have stuck with a budget boost at that point and saved a ton of money. But hey, now I'm up 4" and locked so I guess it's a win-win for me.
That is plain stupid to do on a leaf sprung rig and impossible to do on a coil sprung rig like a ZJ. It would be a really good idea for you to go learn about suspensions in general before plunging into lifting a ZJ.

I bought the HI-WAY BLASTER HORN that's 139dB and every time I honk the horn an Angel dies.

Think about it...
ur gonna need to buy shocks unless you can machine some the correct length.
swap your front coil springs to the rear. and go get some f150 coils out of an older f150. will be good for 3" lift give or take. maybe 4|". cost you a set of shocks. 25" extended. go check older dodge trucks for that length or jeep wranger JKs; they will be similar length for that lift if you don't wanna go new. drill the trackbar bracket up front over 3/4" of an inch. google it.
yep, you can do it dirt cheap. and it will ride like a bag of smashed *******s and you eventually make you jealous of how well a dump truck handles bumps and drives, but hey, if you park it at the mall people might think it looks cool
