New jeep owner

I recently purchased a 1992 jeep, with a lift already installed, I have a dana 30 front, a dana 35 in the rear with 35 inch tires, not sure on lift size or what else has been done, posted some pictures on my profile of the underneath if anyone has a moment to take a look at them and maybe help me know what I've got done. p231 transfer case, ax15 transmission? 5 speed with a 4.0.
I'm getting a 8.8 rear installed, mechanically inclined but not sure I want to make that my first project to learn on what not to do. Any help suggestions would be great.
Question I do have is my angle to much on rear drive shaft, I don't think I have a sye and with a 8.8 will I need to install one, getting a rear output shaft leak, I think. I just changed all the fluids so not sure if I had some over pour, but I had a couple drops on the u joint on the rear drive shaft.
Drives perfect, off road handles nicely at 70 I can let go of wheel and has no wobble, steering pull or anything that gave me concern.
Clutch is a little soft but can't break the bleeder valve on slave cylinder loose, and afraid to crank on it to hard and have to drop the tranny to replace. I just got a week ago. I can go through gears ok, third I have to rev match to down shift, 4 and 5th are fine, second to third is just touchy get a soft grind if I try to shift to fast.

Well that's the list of fixing I'm starting with any help or suggestions would be great have all the pics uploaded and if I can post on the forum I will do that now as well.
Take it easy.

As mentioned, because this is the newbie check-in area, you may not get the answers you are looking for. I suggest you check out this forum area and post your questions there, I think you'll get a better response.

I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.
