So with all that said do you all see any potential issues, concerns, problems, ect?
Anything that stands out, good or bad?
If i get it i plan on removing every single sticker but other then that it looks ok to me.
I bluebooked the value of the jeep and its comparable to my VW.

Thanks for taking the time to help a guy out.
hopefully all goes well and i will keep everyone posted.

You have a catch 22 situation there. You will not be able to build a Jeep for what you can buy 1 already built. But, you don't know how hard that rig has been used. It could drive fine, no vibrations and look great. You won't know if gears in axle are cracked or chipped without pulling diff. covers. Same with water in the axles and tranny or transfer case. Sounds like it could be a good deal but buyer beware.

Do it. That is a great START to a rig. X2 on removing all of the stickers, and add to the list the sewer pipe "snorkel" and the roof rack thing. Use the lights elsewhere on the Jeep and drive it. Will the Dana 44 bolt in, same bolt pattern and width? That would be a big plus if it did, but welding new perches on isn't hard to do. Make sure to check all of the fluids just like any other vehicle, and you should be fine.

Sell that $800 contraption, you'll need the money as soon as the "bug" bites you.

If your trails involve river crossing like ours do here he might want to keep the snorkel. I am on engine 2 from going thru a PUDDLE I crossed numerous times before on other trips. It is my just in case, I am not a depth finder.

I would seriously doubt that "snorkel" is even sealed correctly, hell it's probably not even hooked up judging by all of the "look at me!" stickers. If you plan on driving with your water wings on, get a good snorkel, or make sure that one is at least glued together well. Still a great start, and something that you could build to suit you.
