New Member needs advice please

I have always wanted a Wrangler and am now in a position to buy one - I have my eye on a 1998 Sahara with 100k miles on the clock - what problems can I expect at this age/milage?
I will rarly use it off road but as a fun commuting vehicle - am I stupid
thanks
Terry

I've got a 2000 Sahara. Bought it with 18k on it 6 years ago and now it has 110k.
The only trouble I had was that darn orange antifreeze costing me a new radiator and a COUPLE of flushes.

yeah 100,000 isnt much... you might have a few little things but shouldnt be to serious if the previous owner took good care of it
