I'd work from the wheels in, making sure it is mechanically sound. Start with the brakes all around (Including the E-brakes), then wheel bearings and locking hubs, then front u-joints, tie rod ends, ball joints, steering stabilizer, then drive shaft u-joints or CV-joint if you have it, then tranny and transfer case, then the engine. After that I'd probably tackle electrical, lights, accessories, etc. Get it mechanically sound before you start any mods. Once you start one of these projects more will turn up whether you want them to or not. Welcome to the addiction! Nice Jeep!
