I think it needs armor, a SAS and to live at my house.

Pretty clean, how's the interior? Do you have any plans for it?

Welcome!

What wakkjobb said is true, armor is a must, the rest you'll figure out once you decide which way you are going to go with it.

As of right now I'm just working on getting all the little things up to par, oil pan leaks, rear pinion seal leaks, it's sitting less than half an inch from the bump stops on the front so the torsion bars need tightened, stuff like that

Welcome, Armor should be the first thing to do if you plan on wheeling it. Oil leaks suck so getting those fixed is a good plan. Nice looking rig

Well, armor is a close second; first ought to be reliability. Make sure it can get to and from the trails in one piece... details like that.
