Unhappy my delima...What to do?

Ok. I will start from the beginning. 6 months ago I bought a 89 Wrangler w/ the 2.5 paperweight and the ax5 bomb. Drove as great as could be expected. Went to Va beach and bought it, drove the 2.5 hr ride back and seemed to be a good buy. Well if it seems to good to be true, then it prob. is. Got it home and low and behold I got screwed. EXCESSIVE blow-by. Looked like the local oil change place made a huge deposit under my hood. Did some searching on the net and on here and didnt seem worth rebuilding. So, a great friend of mine bought a 86 cj7 for the body. the drivetrain consist of a chevy 305, dana 4 speed trans and a d300 transfer. AMC 20 rear ,dana 30 front(i think). Everything on the frame is shot as far as lines,bolts,mounts,etc. But you can eat off of the drivetrain. Pulled the valve cover and is as clean as a new block. So i am thinking the previous owner dumped some money in it. Well he gave it to me.Runs like a top.The engine,trans, and transfer are out of the YJ and the 4cyl mounts are cut out with a set of AA engine mounts sitting in floor board. With a very limited budget I have reached a stop.My yj front wont hook to the d300 for the obvious reasons of the right side drop transfer. How hard is it to swap the front rear? Is this project adaptable or should I sell off everything I got, recover some money and start from scratch?

I think Advanced Adapters makes a flip kit for the Dana 300 t-case. That way you won't have to switch axles.
