Just to be clear, considering 3betting is important here because 4betting is entirely dependent on the 3bet ranges. Once you figure out their 3bet range it's just a question of how much fold equity you have or how wide you expect them to call that determines your 4bet range.
Standard 3bet ranges depend a lot on the stakes and how aggressively the table is playing, but as a general rule most regs at any stakes have semi-decent 3bet ranges, only the lower the stakes are the more heavily it's weighted towards value. Keep in mind though that at 5nl and 10nl none of the regs believe a 4bet from another reg is ever anything but AA/KK and a lot of them will fold QQ/AK to you, so you do have fold equity.
Button mashing fish however do all sorts of crazy stuff, and you can flat call their 3bets really wide or have to fold everything but QQ+ or KK+, it depends on the player but it's normally plainly obvious which type they are. 4bet bluffing is rarely advisable against them and your 4bets for value vary as much as your 3bet calling range does but I'm rarely folding QQ+/AK to one of these guys and have no problems getting JJ all in against a 50/20 with a high 3bet % because it really doesn't matter if he calls too much or folds too much, he'll do one or the other excessively enough to make it a highly profitable shove.

OOP I 3bet these almost 100% of the time. Planning to fold 99-JJ to 4bets from tight players. Playing OOP I want a low SPR.
IP I 3bet them most of the time.
1: Range balancing. I don't think you can 3bet light very often without some showdown value in your range. AA/KK/QQ + A high isn't very much showdown value (including QQ and not JJ because that's where it stops being +EV to get it all in pre-flop vs an unknown, imo).
2: 99-JJ are rarely hands you can bet all the way to the river for value, so as long as you're only planning on shovelling the chips in over two streets (either after calling and seeing a safe flop, or 3betting pre-flop and expecting to give up if things get crazy) then I'd rather do it early in the hand.
