I am looking to buy a 08 Unlimited Sahara. It has 120K miles on it. Should I be concerned? Seems to drive fine. What should I be aware of? Is it worth spending an extra 5k to get one with under 100k on it?

Thanks!

Depending upon what your budget is and what another $5k gets you, you might want to consider getting a 2012 or newer so that you get the 3.6 Pentastar engine. If that puts it out of your range, I wouldn't be as concerned about mileage but you might find that $5k gets you perhaps some more creature comforts or options.

120,000 is nothing on a jeep
While I agree with that in the older 4.0l models I can't say the say on the 3.8l models... based off my experiences I would be very leary about buying a jk with that kind of mileage.
Those engines don't seem to last very well in the jeeps, I would pay slightly more for a lower mileage one.
Or ideally as mentioned try and work out a 2012+ model with the 3.6l engine
