If it has a limited slip, they usually call for an additive. If no limited slip you're fine.

Part number for the shoes is Centric 11102280 front and rear.
I'm pretty sure the transfer case can stay installed to replace the chain. When I did it, I took the whole tcase out because I wanted to replace all the seals too. If you are going to replace the chain, don't bother with the crown/omix replacement, they stretch out fast. I used the chain from BJ's off road when I did it a few years ago and the chain is still tight.

Definitely keep it as stock as possible. Stock CJ's are rare as hen's teeth and really climbing in value while the modified ones are losing value. Here is my 40k 1976 CJ7 Renegade with the 304 and T-18 4-sped. All original except 4-barrel and dual exhaust.

You should be able to easily make a nice spacer for your prop rod. I agree that it would be better to make a spacer rather than drill the original Jeep. Drilling would also be exposing a raw edge of metal and making it susceptible to rust. It would be easy to make the spacer out of a 1/8" thick piece of aluminum. Black abs plastic would also work well. If you have a plastic supplier / shop in your area, many of them have a bulk box and you can get scraps by the pound for cheap. You could also cut and straighten out (with heat) a piece PVC pipe to make a flat sheet to make a spacer. I am not sure if you can flatten ABS pipe but it might be an option.
