1999 Jeep Wrangler Sahara Edition

Ok...looking at buying this. Maybe y'all could give me items I need to look at. It's a '99 Jeep Wrangler Sahara Edition, automatic, PS, PB, AM, FM, CD, tilt, hard top. It was towed behind a RV. It has about 150,000 miles on the odometer but the actual running miles is about 50-60,000 miles. It's in real good shape. I'm going to drive it probably Sunday. If you've got advice or opinions let me know......Thanks

how much? Check tranny fluid for color. Check for oil leaks, check for rust.

I flat tow my '98 and it does NOT count miles while I'm towing it.

Miles can go up. The thing about it is... Miles are miles. It has 150K on it.

Ditto. I towed my '95 Wrangler and now tow my 2000 Wrangler behind my motorhome. If you put the TC in neutral as the owners manual instructs you will not add miles to the odometer while towing. Either the odometer is showing actual use miles or the owner used a procedure different than what is shown in the owners manual to rig the jeep for towing. That aside, 150k on an 11 year old jeep used as a daily driver is not excessive

It probably has 150,000 miles PLUS the towing miles. I towed my '02 jeep behind my motorhome in FROG fashiion, Four Rolling On the Ground and did not rack up one single towed mile. Is your odometer digital? Do a web search, all the info I turned up agrees with my experiance, towed miles don't rack up.
