Looking to be a Wrangler owner

Hello ,
I've finally set my foot on looking for an awesome wrangler crowd.
Been inside sports cars for 15 years, until now, I have a minivan

Family of 4 needing a fun car~

I'm mainly looking for something under 10grand.

What do I have to look for to at least ride it for another 5 years without major repair? Preferably, I'd like something around 100k miles give or take 10k miles.

Thanks guys, I hope I can be active in the forums!

No real advice on how to go about getting what you're looking for, but good luck! Wranglers are awesome!

Thanks guys

I'm having a hard time finding the one I want.
I'm set on TJ, but ones I've been finding are all over 150k miles.

How does wrangler engines hold on mileage? do they need frequent engine treatment, etc?

I guess I have some reading to do on the forums.
