1997 TJ Jeep build, Installing 1979 Ford Dana 44 Front Diff, Ford 9" Rear Diff

Here is what I have, A tub and frame of 1997 TJ Jeep, has been gutted, No Motor, Tranny, Running Gear. I have from a 1979 Ford Dana 44 Coil Spring Front Diff, and Ford 9" Posi Rear Diff, Granny 4 Speed Transmission and Transfer Case, and built 302 ready to install. Wondering if anyone has ever done this and if so, pics or advice much appreciated. I am about to attempt it this PROJECT!!!!!

I've got pretty much the same axles that will be going under mine. I'll give you any pointers that I can when I get to that point.

cj's don't need large amounts of horsepower they can go up mountains, can turn around in a swtich back instead of falling off a cliff. What else do you need? I'd definately take gobbs of grip over speed any day.
what about cj6's, tons of guys seem to have them?
