Dangers of JKU w/125k miles

Hi All,
Looking to purchase a used JKU. I was hoping to find a 2012+ to get the 3.6L V6 but happened to come across a 2008 w/125k miles in very good condition that may be easy to purchase - ~$14k.

Aside from the horsepower deficiency w/the 3.8L, I'm concerned about the 125k miles. That seems high but I'm not familiar enough with these vehicles to know how well the motor and drivetrain hold up at that mileage and beyond.

Any advice?
