88 mj ressurection Long time lurker first time poster

Well ive been lurking on this forum for a few years and thought id finally post what im working on since this jeep has been on the back burner for years. i have an 88 MJ pionner olympic edition. i got it way back in 2005 drove it for a few years and then it was hit and run around 2008 drove it smashed for a bit until the brake lines rusted out and broke, then it just kinda sat. Fast forward to sometime around 2011 i started to fix the old smashed up thing and do a 4wd swap. So i got a rear ended Xj grabbed all the front end parts, front axle, trans, and t-case and swapped that in. Then I lost interest in it again, so i went out and bought a ZJ and was good for awhile. The MJ sat until this year.
Back in the day I had no idea what I was doing and no access to fab tools, now I've been working sheet metal for a few years and have all the tools at work I could ever need. but i missed my truck, the only vehicle I couldn't sell. I've had 14-15 cars since I bought the comanche and its the sole survivor.
So I towed it from my parents farm to my house in the city, cleaned it up took the lift i had on my zj for the front, got a 8.8 rear and perches. got a SYE just because if im going to buy a new driveshaft im going to do it once.
well here is some pictures b.c...well pictures

How it sat after the wreck
