Since you're saddled with an r-title you will be required to fill out the lengthy reconstructed, enhanced, and specialty vehicle title application forms, then take it to one of the dozen enhanced inspection stations in the state to sign off on all repairs and ensure it actually is safe. Your "guy you know" can't do that.
Be sure to save every receipt and you'll have to fix your front crossmember correctly.

'97 zj 5.2, some stuff, some other suff, and some things that even work sometimes.

Already got the Inspection and new title and legal for the road. $472 buck for everything wasn't too bad. Like buying a car again basically.

What is wrong with my cross member?? It is fine. Obviously passed.

Legal for the road again. Re-plated, Re-insured, Re-inspected.

Yea they are the 2.2" Shocks. Ride really nice on the road. Great replacement, barely feel any of the bumps and potholes here in PA. Haven't done the offroad test yet. Still need a few more things.

Longer front drive shaft and need to replace the CV alxles in the front to universals. Plus I wanna get my bumpers and rock sliders on too.

Got my Rock sliders Wednesday. Bolted em up yesterday, Took some pics today.
Im not to sure about the bolts IROR gives you to mount em up. Pretty small.
Thinking bout removing them, getting my rockers redone due to lots of rust. the one and only place that is bad.
Then ill remount them and bolt em up and have em welded into place.

Looking great so far! It looks like you didn't replace your spring isolators, front or rear. Hopefully you won't regret that!

Just something to keep in mind, you might want to swap out your shock bushings with a better set. I put my rough country shocks in with brand new bushings that was 6 months ago and they are garbage now. Going to swap them out for a good set on the weekend.

You don't have to, just my thinking that I'd rather do it while I have it apart than take it apart again. But if they're fine, hopefully they will hold up so you don't have to do it again soon.
