Holy crap, is that entire engine really being held up by those two clamps?

Yeah no way would I take a chance if there was any possible way for it to drop, not the way I do things . It's sitting back in the garage on the engine stand all comfy now.

I'd replace the fuel filter and check plugs just as general precautions on a "new to you" vehicle.

What's next?
Check all grounds is a good place to start
Can you jump it? If you can then it could be batt/alternator.
Starters seem to go bad to but you said it cut out while driving right? When that happened to me it was coil. $30 and back on the road.

Cross the battery and alt off the list becuase it won't jump and the nattering has plenty of juice. The starter is doing it's job, I know because I changed mine last week and know what happens when it's not working.

Ignore my ignorance but what is this coil you speak of?

It's the little round canister looking thing on the passenger side of the block. It takes 12v and increased the power to send to the spark plugs. One plug wire coming out of it going to the distributor cap.

I have five points in the rear seats for my kids, four points in the front.
The rear seat ones have 2 inch shoulder and submarine straps, and 3 inch lap strap.
The fronts are 3 inch shoulder and lap.
Don't get the kind with the round catch that you stick all the belts into and twist to release. Those are for street racing/drag cars. The get dust sand and dirt in them off roading and fail. The one in the pic with the hook and loop type is the type you want. Mine also have a red cloth tab that velcros the latch so you can't accidentally release it.
Moreover, reinforce your roll bar in the front. The windshield will not support the Jeep in a roll over and will push the main loop backwards and collapse it.
A vertical bar welded to the spreader bars and down to a bulkhead mount or to the floor and frame tie in should be in every Wrangler.

It's what sends juice to the distributor for your plugs. Follow the center wire of the distributor and it ends at it. You can check to see if it working with an old spark plug. Pull that center wire of distributor and insert a old plug, try starting....if it sparks then your coil is good. Then you do the same thing to test the distributor but pull a regular spark plug wire off engine( make sure to reconnect center wire)
