Default 89 MJ build

One of my friends wrecked his Comanche over the weekend, so my buddy/roommate Kevin bought it from him. Only paid $350 for the truck, still runs good, just screwed up the front axle, control arms, and body damage. So we are going to rebuild it. Its an 89 2wd, 4.0 5 speed truck. Heres how it currently sits.

The drivers window got broken (truck ended up on its side in the wreck...dont drink and drive), windshield got broke because he didnt have his seatbelt on, but the frame looks good still.
Current plans are replace the broken glass, new front clip possibly off a 97+ XJ, haven't decided for sure on that yet, convert it to 4x4, 4.5-5" lift, 31" tires for now, and eventually JCR bumpers.
Im trying to talk him into long arms, sliders, and some skid plates too, but we'll see.

This may be a slow build, but I'll keep it updated as we make progress.
