Strip my old Jeep - what to take?

I have a '92 Wrangler 4cyl manual with a bad engine that was last started 2002. I have a 95 4cyl manual that I have been driving since I bought it in 2004. Rumbling noises made me bring it by the shop where they tell me the transfer case fluid has leaked out and I might need a rebuilt which cost $600 not installed. This made me remember I HAVE an extra set of parts - so I'm going to pull the transfer case from the 92. My question is, what else should I pull from the old(er) jeep? I don't have a TON of storage space but would like to extract as much useful stuff from the old one before I have its stripped carcase carried off to the junk yard.

- stripping con'd

Also, I have a standard set of tools (wrenches, etc) so any suggestions of tools I should rent to help remove the part you recommend would be appreciated (excluding things like blowtorches, if I need that I'm leaving it on the old jeep).

If the other Jeep has good frame or tub . Consider selling it as it is you'll get more fir it than a junkyard . Here junkyards only pay 250 a ton for junk cars . -40$ towing .
Sell it to a jeep rebuilder .

Well, this is a good start:

Any of these components going to need anything beyond big wrenches?

an impact gun would make a world of difference. Probably a sawzall or cut off wheel or torches....something to cut out seized up bolts.

Trying to think of things that saved the day... besides the regular stuff,

full set of metric torques bits (star pattern) that you can use with a ratchet. Utility knife, big hammer, piece of pipe for ratchet incase you need more leverage, jack and jack stands (use stands to hold frame and jack to lower transfer case), big pry bar/crowbar to break stubborn seals, opened end wrenches incase a ratchet won't fit, hack saw w/new metal blades, good side cutters (wire cutters)... oh, and maybe something like a bucket or tub to drain chemicals in.

And make sure you bring plenty of fluids for yourself... if you start sweating out there you'll want extra water.

and... welcome to the forum. And remember, scrap jeeps are like gold. You'll get more for a stripped 92' listing it on craigslist than you will at a scrap yard.
