Got me a jeep...now what?

Picked up this jeep from a friend
Brandy new tires, rebuilt trans, 2 new window regulators
It hit a pole and jacked up the front end. Aside from the loose exhaust, front damage and the steering wheel needing an alignment it runs really great. 230k miles on it.

What should I do with it?
Thinking I could make some parts but I'm not much of a jeep guy so I'd have to see what people would want.
Always wanted to fab up a jeep bumper but not sure if I have time for that right now with colder weather coming up very soon.
Sell it. Part it out. Trade it.

Not sure what to do. I do a lot of daily driving so this won't help with the low gas mileage and high miles it has.
Any ideas?

Parts for those things are cheap. Get some metal and toss it on it.

Then sell it if you want. Or just cut the fenders and dominate.

How well do jeeps do at pushing snow? If I can find myself a cheap plow I can save myself hours of shoveling this winter
