Which should I build out of the other???

Ok, I have a 1989 Cherokee Limited that has a junk yard motor, which ran at the jy almost a year ago when I bought it, which is currently in the 89 but not bolted down all the way. This jeep also needs the front grill support panel, and a few other misc parts. As is, it will take a bit of time to get everything in on theis one and hopes that it still runs with no issues. Now, just the other day I got my dad's 1990 cherokee pioner which I could use for parts or make better with the good parts from the limited. This jeep does run as is, but does have a slight upper end knock which has been there since the purchasse of the jeep over a ago and 12000 miles ago, and also suffers from a slight blow by issue. Another problem is that the 4wd works 50% of the time and the driver side upper door hinge is sprung. Which do you all think I should go with? The 89 or the 90?

I guess i'd build whichever one has the cleanest body, the rest of the parts can all be swapped.

Body wise they are both pretty much the same. I want my 89 doors on the 90 since the windows are tinted and seem to operate better but other than that they are both in really good shape...no rust or "wreck" damages.
