Automatic transmission life expectency

Hi, I plan to be a jeep owner soon. I am looking at buying a 1999 Jeep Wrangler Sport TJ with 89.000 miles on it. I have two areas of concern.

It has an automatic transmission. If it is properly maintained, what is the life expectency and are there any known problems with this transmission?

Also, it has 35 in. tires with 4.88 gears. Charts indicate that it will turn about 3050 rpms at 65 mph. Does that pose any problems driving distances of 400 miles?

Any help or opinons will be appreciated. Thanks.
