96 ZJ 5.2.....
I know I want at least 3" but I want to try to stay away from it being too top heavy. More so, what lift will give me the best stability on and off road but with the most travel?
With a 3" lift i'm assuming that the budget boosters would be a bad idea???
Also, with a 3" can I get away with not trimming and running a 33" tire?

After looking at swampy's write up, I think I will trim.
I also found this write up: http://www.rocky-road.com/zjtrailblazer.html
It state that I can move my front springs to the rear and get about 3/1/2"
Then just buy the new ones for the front.
BTW: Anyone have any better solutions on the T-case drop?

You don't need a t-case drop. Do a search on here, there are plenty of write-ups and info on the Front to Rear swap. That is what I did, it works well. Definitely a good budget lift.

Will the stock suspension from a 2000 Jeep Wrangler help me in my lift at all?

I can get the Wrangler suspension for $80...(everything taken off for lift)
Could I use any of it to get around 3 1/2 to 4 1/2 inches?

Wrangler front stuff is same side as grand .. But much shorter..

Unless its 6" lift springs they wont give you 3.5

however your stock rears should raise your front close to 3" then you can just buy 3" rear springs from Kevins or something..

I think you mean the front go to the rear. Let me know if im wrong...this is the info I have so far...per the link above.
Can I get Kevins website addr.?
Are there possibly springs I could get from a salavaged stock ???... that would give me 4" in the rear?
