Welcome to the forum, Luke.
I Agree with Styk...Get fuel injection if possible.
However, if you like the one you are looking at, 3500 does sound about right. Take it to a local Jeep shop and get them to take a look at it for any sneaky rust-outs, or common mechanical issues.
118k miles on a 23 year old vehicle sounds intriguing.
If ya like tinkering on stuff...and/or have freinds that do...I think you;re golden. If, However, you are mostly looking for something cool to show-up in the school parking lot....a wrangler might not be the best choice.
Since you are smart enough to already be conscious of "budget" (uncommon for many people, especially in your age-group), I have a hunch you are already off to a great start.
Threads wander aimlessly....always refer back to post #1
