Whats your plans with it on the modding side of it? Looks like it would be a nice ride to take to the hills and not worry about it getting a scratch on it

How are the tow points, front and back? Does it have any skid plates? You need both if it doesn't already have them. Down the road you might want to consider some body stiffeners. That model has a somewhat weak body. The aftermarket has parts for that also. It looks like you have yourself a fun Jeep for sure!

some decent front and rear tow points are a must for sure. you can buy some, or make some.

rear you can just get a hitch, front you need some plates that bolt to the unibody, factory hooks will not do if someone has to yank on it to get you out, like how you had to yank on my bumper last time at the badlands and still could not budge my heep.

Man, that looks like a fun rig! My buddy has an '88 XJ that's similar and he takes it on all the hardest trails without worrying about damage. He put one of those cheap Smittybuilt winches on it and welded the axles. Otherwise it's bone stock with 29" tires. All the guys with highly modded rigs at Brown's Camp(local ORV area) just stand and stare while my buddy eases his junker Wagoneer(XJ Wag, not FSJ) with ugly wood panels up the toughest obstacles.
