Well, a little update, I went to see the Jeep today, exhausted and weary eyed, but still made the 5 hour round trip drive. Here's what I found:
True Currie 9" rear, 4.10 gears, Detroit Locker, Diff is clean inside, teeth didn't look chewed up from what I could tell (old oil but no metal in the oil)
Front D44 from a NT CJ running wheel spacers
258 in pretty dang good shape, clifford valve cover, clifford intake, holley carb, unknown headers, accel ign, ran very smooth, and the motor was ice cold when he went to start it (i checked first) and it started right up on the first bump of the ign.
D300 twin stick w/4:1 low range, everything seemed tight yet smooth, and all worked well.
4 spd tranny with R being all the way to the right and back, but very smooth, new clutch, didn't leak at all and was full of fluid
4" TrailMaster springs/lift, currie greasable shackles
Spyder Customs tie rod and drag link
Frame was immaculate, solid, and powder coated semi gloss black
Body was in VERY good shape, although had a couple little spots in the floor that had been patched. I saw two places that had new metal welded on the floor, both about 2"x4". I put my hands behind the dash and the windshield hinges, no rot there, nor under the roll bar mounts.
Bestop trail seats, roll bar cover
Has a Trail Utility rack that mounts to the windshield and the back of the body for a cargo rack
Tub is a little hacked up where the tcase shifters come through, and the Jeep was orig. t400/qtrac
Windshield frame is 100% good
Tuffy stereo console (no key)
6x9 soundwedges on the roll bars
Paint is faded
Brake lines need hooked up (has brand new goodridge lines, just need put in
Wiring is a NIGHTMARE!!!! I looked under the dash and the first thing I see is 2 extension cords run from under the dash to the engine bay. I stopped looking at that point.
Seats are moldy from being outside
There is no top, but the supertop hardware is all there
Missing gauges/not hooked up all the way
Steering box is really sloppy (I have a spare)
T-case skid plate isn't the correct one and it is half assed on there with long bolts all the way through the frame
Steering column leaves a little to be desired-wiring is all shot-needs rebuilt
No back seat
covered in red clay mud
PO used POR15 on the inside of the tub and it looks like crap.
