Do a three inch chop to lower that down just a tiny bit, little straightening here and there, yeah, she is a pretty nice ride, unless you want to call her a survival vehicle, bet she can almost go anywhere.

With my 6'8" and 375lb frame I think the top would be fine where it is....

Oh, well, my bad, I didn't realize you were of quite this stature, greater than my own, so, in your case, hey, add a couple little four inch by 20 inch windows along the top edge and she would be super-cool!

I would be inclined to do a 12V Cummins install and just restore the body.  Just a drive train especially the brakes
