Hey y'all from SC

I'm the proud new owner of a 08 jku x, however not new to the custom world as I have 1 cj-5 stretched/383/one tons on 40's, 1 half built cj-7 and a built 1000hp dodge 2500. I bought this jeep as an eventual project as it has 170,000 miles on it. I wanted a 4 door since they came out it so I'm happy to have it since my other two are topless, and I will be doing a lot of modifications to it since factory standing I'm not impressed with the performance(I have 4 vehicles wtih over 400hp). I've been lurking around several jeep forums for a few months researching. since the stock axles and suspension, and motor are wore out ill be upgrading everything! I still need to source some axles( probably dana 60 and sterling, still haven't decided on the rear) and I have a gen V 5.3 and tranny I pulled a year ago for a different project but decided to jk it instead. I have only put a lot of lights, a bumper and touchscreen in this jeep for now just so its not to factory but ill be modifying it heavily over the next few months! any insights on control arms and springs w/shocks would be helpful that would complement my one tons.
BTW I want to build a reliable jeep that I could daily drive(not that I would) but also take it down the trails too instead of my old cj's
