Tranny lifespan

Luella, I have been looking for a wranger. (97 TJ most likely ) and I have read about the tranny needing rebuilt, I relieze that in Manuel's they can vary if the driver is crappy but I was wonder about how many miles the transmission last. Thanks on advance for any help!

Mine (ax-5) has 250k ( I've put 160k on it) now and works fine, and I'm not easy on it...

My YJ had 250,000 miles and was still in great shape when I go my TJ
Just change the oil every 30,000 miles.
