'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

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.
