87 Mj Workhouse Build

I just bought my uncles 87 Comanche Pioneer that he bought brand new. Its a 4.0 i6 5speed 2wd short bed that id like to turn into a 4x4. I don't plan to make a trail rig out of it but i would like to use it as a work horse on the farm and possibly plow driveways with it but still be able to get somewhat decent mpg on the road. I want to know what the best axles to use are, should i get the 231 or 242 transfer-case, will the big ton leaf spings fit on a short bed without any modifications? I want basic bolt in solutions not requiring any fabricating. I also need to know what it takes to swap out my gauge cluster with one that has a tac and actual gauges not just idiot lights, and what it takes to swap the bench seat for buckets and a center counsel as well as changing the nose to that of a 98-01 xj.
