insufficient funds yj build

Where to start, It was posted in hard core but it is my first full all out build so i figured id put it in non hard core.
Any way iv'e been wheeling for quite awhile with pretty good sucess.Started with a handful of cjs and other 4x4s,just kinda beat them in to the ground .
I now have a 94 wrangler 4cyl 5 speed ,done a few mods ,spring over,34 ltbs,8.8 rear axle conversion ,sye,shackle reversal,ect... It has now been sitting in the garage a few years now due to busted ball joints.
Trying to keep up with rigs with one tons and a heavy foot on the skiny pedal,just did not work.
I have since picked up some parts and ready to do some mods.

Drivetrain from 86 1 ton chevy diesel/60/14blt/th400/np205.
38.5 boggers
sky high steer arms
etc...
My plans would include thinking about
Rear strech (xj springs)
Poss doubler later
If funds allow full hydro
Currently working on through frame bushings for front thinking using offset shackle.
Front driveshaft clearence issues/rear shaft is currently 20" yoke to yoke
Also looking for info on twin sticks for my round bolt pattern 205.(found fig 8 sticks)
Any one with simular builds with any info to help me along the way would be great . I like to gather info to avoid stipid mistakes and having to have to do it twice.A few pics. And to whom it may concern i have been reading lots of pages of research.their are hundreds of pages on here to look at .
