'95 YJ build final plans

Alright guys, I'm approaching the final plans for my build, all I need to figure out is the financial part
Here's what I'm thinking from the ground up: 35x12.30 R15 **** Cepek Mud Terrain tires on axles out of a '79 Bronco, D44 up front and a Ford 9" rear. I'll figure out the gearing when I get there but I know I can get them geared deep enough. Hopefully I can find a powertrax traction system by Richmond gear for the rear. This'll be hooked up to the stock NP231 t-case through a custom Tom Woods CV driveshaft in the rear and a SYE kit. From there on up to the engine everything will be stock, maybe an intake, throttle body, etc as I go. For the lift I'm planning a 1.5" lift very stiff spring that's over the axle with a 1" body lift. If anyone knows a cheap but effective way to beak axle wrap let me know. I'll do stainless brake lines, probably custom built, but the steering is where I get lost. I want to do a high steer system, and I know I'll need a dropped pitman arm, and if it helps I have power steering. If anyone can help me figure out how to deal with the steering please let me know. Other than that I should be set on the build, so if anyone has any critiquing to share or you can help solve the sticky parts let me know

Wow, I didn't realize JeepForum would blank that out. Okay, RICHARD Cepek tires!

What do you mean as far as the steering? ?

If you are referrring to the steering box, then the Durango Steering box upgrade seems to be popular here, and is a direct bolt on I think. I don't have power steering or I would be doing that myself.

I mean that I would have to basically reconfigure the whole steering setup including draglink and tie rods because the Dana 44 is 4.5" wider than my YJ front axle.
