13 jk build after crash

Hello all, I'm going to be building up my 13 jk and I thought this would be a great place to bounce ideas around. I'll add some pictures here within a few days, but the situation is that I rolled my jeep and broke a few things lol. I haven't looked incredibly hard yet as to what all is broken, but several bits and pieces of the suspension, the windshield frame is bent along with one of the brackets on the lower corner, the roll cage bar that braces the windshield is bent and I assume that the mount on the other end (roll cage side of the windshield brace) is tweaked some.

I am going to start with the suspension and driveline, I was thinking maybe a rubicon 4.5 long arm rolling 35's and putting a dana 44 on the front. Plus lockers both front and rear. My issue is that this will be my first build so I'm not working with much experience here lol.
Basically I'm looking to hear if any of the above is a bad idea. This will be a daily driver again, so I don't want a suspension that destroys normal driveability. And I know very little about gearing so some pointers there would be nice (4.10's?)

Before I end this little novel of a post, it's a bone stock '13 2 door sport with the 6 speed
