That's a vague question and really depends on what you want to do with it. As long as the frame is good and the drivetrain is in good shape, most people will usually start with lifting it a little and throwing on some larger tires for offroad performance. Then you could replace the two piece axles in the rear AMC 20 with one piece axles and regear (depending on what gears you already have)
If you're just wanting a good looking daily driver, then start with the body work and interior. It all just depends on what is wrong with the jeep and what you have pictured in your mind as the finished jeep (a bit of an oxymoron)

what do you plan on doing with it

84 CJ7, 258, shackle reversal, 4.56 gears, lockrite , moser one piece axles, 37" SSR's
