Jeep CJ7 build overload.....

Well it is time to completely rebuild the CJ7. I am in overload looking up axle's and tires and gear ratio's and this and that.... . I have decided on ford 9 axles, beadlocks and 35's/36's. I want a bigger wheel than the OEM 15's. Basically I don't want my wheel to look like a burnt donut. I have 258 bored .30 over power plant. I know the biggest question that will be asked is "what are you using it for?" Well I live in south Alabama so not really any rock climbing here that I know of. So it will be beach, trail, mud... I will probably drive it more in the summer than my truck. Now to sell the Rhino to fund this build!! So any suggestions will be welcome.

Lets just throw in a coil spring conversion maybe in there for good measure. So many options... so many decisions....

I'm going for....
4" suspension lift 2" body
36" tires 17"-20" beadlocks
258 power plant
Other than that, everything else will be decision as I go!

The pic is the current state it is in now.
