id say 10-12k miles a year is average. my personal opinion is nothing averaging out over 20k miles a year. if its in the 10-15k range a year i'm down for it. that may be a little high. but definitely not in the realm of being over-driven. especially if it was well maintained

That's not $13k...that's almost $14k. The mileage is fine, but I would tend to say the price is too high. I know it's a Rubi, and it's in nice shape, but still. 14 grand for a vehicle with over 100k miles? Hmmm...

the jeep looks nice and all but your paying nearly 14k on a vehicle that has 100k miles on it... yes the inline 4.0 is built to last and more then likely will, but 14k for that many miles i just couldnt bring myself to do it.

id look around a bit and shop sure someone has a jeep out there thats a better deal then this, gl in your search or whatever you decide to do

i got my 06 lj( i know its not a rubi) but it only had 10k and i got it for 16k. you could probably do alot better on price imo. dont get a rubi and spend less with less miles and put the rest in add ons.

Car dealers go for an average of 15,000 per year. For a 7 year old rig, it comes out about right. But for that mileage, I would do a bunch of haggleing.

With fuel injection these days, 100,000 miles is just getting broken in, if it was carbed it would be a different story.

There is NOTHING wrong with buying a higher than normal mileage vehicle, as long as it's well cared for. However the price should be lowered accordingly. Ultimately condition is much more important than mileage.
