As stated above, it all depends on you. Mine is a daily driver and yes I have been known to take it on long trips. Here's my set up.
Stock 1.3L bored 20 over with a K&N air filter and Thorley header.
Stock axels and gears 3.73
with a Detroit EZ locker in the rear.
Petroworks GRS II t-case. On this one if I had to do it again, I would consider a 6 to 1 case instead.
RRO heavy duty t-case arms with poly mounts.
RRO 5" SPOA lift with 1" shackles and Doetsch 3000 series shocks.
Tough Trail crossover steering. Breeze is basically the same set up.
Petroworks skid plate.
Big O 31x10.50s on 3" back spaced wheels. Will probally go with 2.5" back spacing when I do the RUF conversion.
Not exactly a speed demon or a "hard core" rock crawler, but
it gets me where I want to go with no problems.
Now the negativs.
It rides like a truck.
Top speed on flat ground is somewhere between 65 & 70 on a good day. On long up hill grades be prepared to use 3rd gear. If you want more power start shopping for a 1.6 L 16 valve now.
Don't even dream about running anything bigger than 31s. At this point you are at the extreme limit for axle strength. anything bigger and be prepared for an axle upgrade. And yes you can break an axle with 31s if you have a "lead foot" and go "gonzo" on the skinny pedal.
As far as accessaries like seats, the stockers seem to fit by backside just fine,
type and style of cage, bumpers. lighting, etc. thats all up to your individual taste and pocket book.
