How many miles is to many? I want to buy a used unlimited for a daily driver, only off road it will probably see is country roads and 2 track from me hunting. My budget is under $20K

That is going to be a hard one to answer. Motors are good for at least 200K if properly maintained. Other components counts on how much abuse the vehicle has seen and what maintenance was performed.

Anything that i specifically should be looking at?
The one im looking at is 2007 Sahara Auto 91K looks like a soccer mom owned it. $18k
but there are some small tears on the roof (shouldn't be a big deal) Normal for a soft top at that age?

This isn't hard. Try and find you a 2012 JKU or JK sport(To get the new 3.6L pentastar. The unlimited will be a bit more. But, depending on the options, you can probably find a nice used 2012 with barebones for around 20. (Soft top, no upgraded stereo, non rubi, higher millage)

I would be more concerned with the maintenance than the mileage. If the Jeep had regular quality fluid changes it should last a long time and be a much better choice than one with lower miles that was not maintained.

How well it was taken care of and maintained may be the most important. If you have a trusted mechanic you can have it looked over before you buy one.
