1984 CJ7 Brake system overhaul

I'm replacing the brakes on a 1984 Jeep CJ7 w/out power brakes master cylinder to caliper, hard lines, flex lines, everything. I have bench bled master cylinders before but I figure since the lines will be dry why not just prime/bleed the entire system once I have everything replaced? I have at least four very capable legs to pump the pedal while I keep the reservoirs topped off. Any input?

Bleed the master cylinder first without a doubt then buy/borrow/steal a mighty vac and bleed the brakes. The mighty vac is money and time well spent.

Did mine last week, bench bled the master, hooked it up, then gravity bled all four wheels. Went thru about 50 ounces of fluid, but have great pedal now.
