Jeep Purchase Question

I'm hoping someone can give me some insight. I'd like to buy a Jeep TJ as a second car to drive for fun and sometimes during the week. I found a beautiful 2005 soft top, 4.0L manual transmission for $9995. My hangup is that it has 140K miles on it. I know that engine is indestructible, but I'm a little hesitant to buy something with that high of mileage on it. Can anyone give me their opinion based on their experiences with Jeeps? Thanks!!!

With today's vehicles, that is really not alot of miles if it's been taken care of.

Where are you located? Have you searched the frame for rust? Have you driven the Jeep? They are all beautiful on Craigslist but when you get there it can be a different story. What else do you know about the Jeep? More info will help get more response from people on here. Sounds like a good deal to me but that is a lot of miles... I'm sure more people will chime in here..

It's being offered at a dealership. 2 owners, Arizona car now in Southern California. Had my friends dealership run a carfax on it and it's clean except for the high miles. Haven't inspected it yet, going to look at it tomorrow.
