Should I buy?

i am about to buy a 99 wrangler sahara.
it is a one owner with 110000 miles.
I havnt had a jeep since the cj days and am a little nervous.
how long can i expect it last, mileage wise?
any issues i should look for?


is 8500 too much?

in great shape with new tires.

Thanks

I bought a 97 sahara with 114,000 miles for 6,300 if that helps you gauge the price range. I love my sahara and it's been very reliable. I had to get it because it came with so many expensive extras like lift kit tires and rims. Guess I got lucky. You should easily get 200,000 at least if you take care of it as with any vehicle. Plus they are easy to work on which was a big deciding factor for me.

I found an 02 for $10,000. It only had 80K miles. I wound up splurging for a different '02 with 27K, original miles!!!
