YJ on a String....

Hey all,
Im launching a build, my wife and ten kids, yes I said ten kids, bought me an 87 wrangler sport. Its got the 4.2 I6, manual tran and its a little rough but drivable.

I need to replace or rebuild the engine as it has a knock, I think its a piston rod or maybe just a berring. I will fire off some pics as soon as I get.

Any advice on what the optimum front and rear axels should be? Im using it as a daily driver, no off-road or crawling.

Thanks in advance for any responses! All advice is welcomed and appreciated.

Lookin forward seeing the build!

Why do you need to change/upgrade the axles if it's just a DD? I'd just keep the 30 in the front and 35 in the rear.

DD? I'm still learning lol what's that? I'd like to have disc brakes all the way around. Any suggestions?
