Default 1976 cj5, 304... not sure what to do with it?

I have a 1976 cj5 with a 4'' lift, currently riding on 31's. It has a really clean body, (i'll post some pics of it once I get used to this site, sry) I am thinking about selling it but I want to get the most money out of it... What do you suggest I do? sell as is or fix it? I'm a good mechanic so thats not a prob, I'm just not sure if I will get my money out of it?

The Good!
New best top (soft top) and doors, newer fiborglass body and fiborglass fenders, decent looking paint as well. (like I said, pics are coming..)

The not so good...
The engine has a small tick and a lot of leaks, so it will eventually need a rebuild, the transfer case is also making some noise... pretty sure thats the belt. I honestly don't know that much about older Jeeps so what do you guys think? what I can do? Any clues to what I could get out of it?

Any thoughts would be appreciated! thanks!

Just fix it and wheel it. Throw some new axles under it(I'm assuming you have NT axles) open up your wheel openings and run some 35's.
