Soon-to-be Jeep Owner

Hello,
I am going to buy my first Jeep in the next few weeks. I have never owned a jeep before; however, I have had a few other 4x4 vehicles. I realize a jeep is a jeep and there is nothing like it.



I am looking at several wranglers ranging from 1998 – 2004. There are so many different options I am trying to decide on; like 4cyl/6cyl; 5 Speed/Auto; Hardtop/Soft top; Lifted/not lifted; full doors/half doors. I guess a lot of it would be personal preference (like color), but is there any particular options that I should look for or be wary of? What is the average mileage I should look at per year when buying a jeep? Are there a lot of differences between the Sport, Safari and Unlimited? Basically I would like to know what is going to break and is it very costly to fix if I do the work myself.
