what to get next?

Hey everyone just finished up all the drive train on my 80 cj7 and now it's about time to get into the fun stuff, I have a few things I want to get but not sure which one to go with first. So my jeep is missing doors, rear seat ( the front one could be replaced too), the current leaf springs are sagging and also want to get a winch.... So what one of these do you think I should get first
1) seats and doors
2) new lift
3) winch

Ps the jeep is already lifted, but the passenger side springs are starting to sagg.

Looking forward to your opinions!!

Winch, seats and doors are optional ... fix the drive train first (springs)!

Okay here's a question the po doesn't remember what sized springs he put on it here is a picture of how it is now

There is a 1in body lift on it for sure, but I can't decide if I want to go with 4in springs with the 1in bl, because I feel that might be to much lift for 33's

I have a 1" BL (slightly less) and will not bother removing it when I get my 4" BDS installed. If it was over 1" I would ditch it but there are no issues and its not a huge difference in height....YMMV
