Rear axle for an 1980 cj7

The jeep I am currently looking into has a major flaw. It has no rear diff cover AND it rusted a little. So what would be the best (simplest and cheapest) thing to do? Get a new Dana 44 or gut it and try to rebuild it(i have no clue what I am doing)?
If I did go the Dana 44 route should I buy a front also or just get a nice donor with a v8?
