New member looking for advice

Hello everyone,

I am brand new to this community and I am looking forward to the future of being a member of the community. I am wanting to buy my first jeep but i'm not exactly sure where to start. I have a budget of $23,000. I would prefer to get the unlimited but the 2-door is perfectly ok with me. I am not much of an off-roader but I do want a solid durable car. I want a hardtop automatic also.

I was looking at the unlimited from about 2007-2014 and I was wondering if there was a certain "good" year or a year that a lot of people didn't like?

I am worried that if I get a used jeep that already has about 65,000 miles I will be wasting my money because it will start to break down, should I be worried about that?

Also, is it better to get the sport with less miles or get the Rubi or Sahara with more miles at the same year and price?

Finally if anyone is from the dallas,texas area, do you know where the best dealership that sells used jeeps?

Any help, pointers, or tips would be great!
