FYI good deal on parts jeep in western MA
$300 for parts '96, does not even seem like it would take too much to make it fully runnable. I'd buy it and part it out but I don't have anywhere to put it and have random Jeep parts floating around.
by the way, if anyone wants to get it to part it out, I'll be happy to buy the spare tire carrier off you!
