wannabe here

I am looking to buy a jeep to tow behind my rv. If a jeep has been properly maintained, how many miles is too many. I will on occasion be driving it on the highway, but will not need it for a daily driver. I have looked on line at several in my price range, but mileage ranges anywhere from 100K up to 180K.

If youre handy with a wrench I dont think there's such a thing as too many miles. My 92 has 140k on it, sat in a storage lot for 7 years and took 3 months for my son, dad and myself to make it roadworthy. It's my sons daily driver for school and work and it runs like a top. It's also not going to take long until you start tweaking things here and there. Once you start that the mileage really goes out the window.

YJ start needing a lot if TLC after 100K and 20 years.

It will definitely depend on the owners standard of maintenance.
