New to Wranglers, Should I buy? Feedback appreciated

I am new here and was hoping to get some input from you guys. I have the Jeep Wrangler bug and absolutely want one NOW. I found a decently priced 98 Wrangler SE, with the following issues:

-110k + miles (current owner says odometer gets stuck at time and needs a tap to get it to start rolling again. Current reading is 110k miles)

- Rusted floorboards, some rust on doors

- Has been sitting for a whole, needs U joints, tires, fluid swaps.

- No top

It's the 2.5 , 4cyc, 5 speed.

Are there any trouble spots? Other than the rust?

Is that engine reliable? I need this to be a reliable car!

It will be a second car and winter car. Don't do a lot of highway driving or towing.

Or do I need the 4.0?

The other issue is, this thing is like 3 hours away from me. So all of this information is based on what the seller has told me. What else should I check for when I go take a look?
