I did this, and can tell you it's worth it.
The roll cage bolts made me drink. Get decent tools, grinders, impacts etc.
Also see the YJ build page for lots of other restorations.
Welcome to Jeep Forum. My build is attached in the link below and it is very similar to what you are planning.
Best of Luck,
LOTS AND LOTS of those beers, the tear down will be the most frustrating, figure on breaking lots of bolts and things..... and lots of gringding and crap to get it nice to be powerdercoated....
ALSO powerdercoating takes lots of heat, so you axles and stuff will need broken down and all the gears, fluid, rubber seals will need to come out prior to coating and all redone with new ones.... nota fun job either...
the end result will be nice Im sure... good luck
