Help me Decide my new Jeep!!

So, once I pay off my Sportster in a few months I plan on getting a new Jeep.

I'm looking to move up from my 90 XJ and get something a bit more comfy.

Help me decide!

So far my choices have been narrowed (use this term loosely) to: Another XJ, a TJ ( if i can find one in my budget ), or a WJ.

What gets me the most bang for my buck? Looking for comfort and wheelability.

I love the XJ from experience because I own one, and am leaning mostly towards a newer XJ.

Mine gets 21 mpg hwy and 16 on road with 280k miles. So, I would like to keep that similiar.

IMO. Stick with an xj. I personally like the 91-95 year range. More parts easily found and more oatys are interchangeable in those years. 96 1/2 up you get alit of electrical issues and they are more part/year specific.
The zj and wj are nice but they don't like wet wheeling. Cost more for repairs and mods. But alot more comfy.
I have 2 xjs now. My 92 is off road.
My 89 is dual purpose and we made it more street able. Zj seats, home brew 5" lift that rides very nice. With the 4.7 stroker we get 17 in town 24 highway.
Building a zj now. Its loaded, has a blown 4.0 putting in the Mercedes diesel. Swapping rear coils with leafs for better off road and towing the 92.
