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!

welcome Mike!

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.
