New to Jeeps

So I'm new to jeeps. I am buying my best friends 85 CJ7 and it's pretty much stock.

I am looking for help I've never owned anything other than Chevys and this is my first gas vehicle. But I'm not new to working on non diesel cars and trucks.

Here's where I need help. I'm wanting to make it into my daily driver but my have fun on the weekends. So my questions are:

What lift and tire options should I go with?
What kind of axles should I run?
Should I keep the motor and just rebuild it?

I have 9 months to make up my mind and order parts since I'm deploying in like 9 days. I know there easy to work on and I was a ASE Chevy Mechanic so I know how to turn wrenches.
