With any older jeep build start with electrical system. Older jeeps are know to have problems. Also check local junkyard for parts before shelling out money for factory new. Other than that have fun and don't try to do much at once

Thanks Mike, good advice. The wiring I have played with seems brittle and in need of replacement. I guess i will fix what is broken and start from there. Any suggestions with the seating. When in the drivers seat the steering wheel is almost in my lap. There seems to be no room to move anything back due to the wheel well.

Yes. I have the same problem in the 74 cj. But my steering is too high due to the lift. I've jisheng felt w it. Options I've explored is a tilt steering column that came in the 80s cj7
