No timing belts to break.
I do know of tons of people with 250,000 + miles on EA82s, but timing belts and oil pumps are the weak spot on them.
Just make sure its a 5 speed D/R 4wd what ever way you go.
You will be saving yourself work in the future

the engine bays are less cramped, there's no timing belts to worry about, you can still find parts fairly easy at the JY, and you can modify them for offroad use just as easily as an EA82 and with greater return on the effort on the 2 door hatch.
I'm content to wait a while to fix my wagon

I got a few cancer spots.... wish I had the time and a shop to fix them like you did.
I just hit them with a spray can til that one year (hopefully soon) I get a garage.

If you buy a BRAT, check for rust. The tail gate is the first place to go isnt it?
