I had an '88 wrangler for six years back in the nineties and I loved it. Very fun to own and drive. I had a four-cylinder so not much power but I rarely did anything too sketchy anyway. They're fun on rocks and make fantastic convertibles. but if you're using it for work, you'd probably go with a hard-top model. ; ) I think they're considered much better vehicles these last few years than some of the models from the 80's and 90's. Stick a wench on it and you should be able to get yourself out of most jams. As long as there are trees around at least.
Have fun with it and definitely get the Russian arm mod. Put it right next to the flame thrower.

Also, If you get a winch and get stuck offroading and there are no trees, Make sure you have a spare...and a shovel... Take the winch out as far as it will go Minus like 5 wraps on the core(increases the pulling strength) Dig the spare upright in the ground completely with the winch cable attached to the rim, pack the dirt, soil, Mud back on the tire, whala, a mobile pulling attachment point. make sure you always winch with the Hood Up to protect you from a flying chunk of something! and Wrap a floor mat on the cable, so if it does break, it will tend to drop straight to the floor, instead of sending the hook, thru your front and back window...I've been there when it's happened to a fellow offroader!.

Get your checkbook ready. It's as addictive as steadicam to xeck out but doesn't make any money for you...what do ylu do? Dump more money into it!

And as far as a russian arm on a jeep...are you high?
Maybe on caffeine, I do drink wayyyyyyyy too much coffee sometimes, I guess my little smiley at the end didn't make it clear that I wasn't remotely serious?
Congratz on finding a wrangler anyway, if petrol wasn't so extortionately expensive in England and I could justify a second car right now, I would buy one in a heartbeat, certainly on my list of cars to own before I die

Some kind of scaffolding, tube based, seat/vehicle mount conversion for the rear would be awesome for sure, I know the guys at optical support over here in the UK have made something which mounts to a rear tow bar quite nicely with a seat and everything.
