Build up plan thaughts and advice wanted

I've been wheeling my jeep with 33's for a couple of years now and am thinking about taking the next step with the veiw to occasional competeing in winch challanges (challange class max 37.5" tyres)

I know of a set of currie 9" with arbs &4.56 etc coming up for sale shortly which has prompted me into action with out my usual procrastination and "research"

winch challange vehicles need to be good allrounders as the courses can cover high speed ,mud & rocks all in the one stage .

In order to keep the COG as low as possible I thaught cutting the rear guards , lifting the flares and trimming the hood at the belt line and lifting the front fenders to suit to keep the lift down a bit .

suspension 4link rear, 5 link front
(diff's currently set up for that) I fancy the Idea of coil overs but am not sure if they are the best way to go ($ Vs performance) .

I would like some opinion's on the merits of various transfer case options Atlas ,Stak & others whatever I choose it will have to take a fair bit of abuse and have the ability to cope with later powertrain upgrade

It will also need a new cage ,some barwork and a tricked up highmout.

Any thaughts & ideas on this plan ?
