74 CJ what to do now...Ugly w/Pic

Ugly...See pic...What do I do now. Do to the fact that it is a 74 CJ in Wisconsin there is of course a little rust. I bought this last year for a third car (Jeep)it is useful (It has a plow). But I think I want to do more....(GRIN) is it worth getting sheet metal for the sides? The floors aren't to bad (Nothing a little welding won't fix). What does it run per side? The spring pack that is in here looks like something out of a semi...about 10 leafs in the front and back....and of course rides like a tank...The steering is loose...yadda yadda yadda. Lets hear some ideas..... My main project right now is my XJ. That will have the motor pulled this winter and gone though, I am thinking of a 4.7 Stroker kit for it along with a lift of 4.5" to 6". (Got to have transportation). Thanks, Carl

Unless you want a show jeep why both buying the body pieces and foxing the body just get more diamond plate and weld it on to fix the boby because you'll only bang it up again off roading.Haveing the plow up in Wis. must be great.
