Thinking of selling the XJ...

I think the time is coming to get rid of the XJ, and get an open-aired SWB Jeep. I found a SWEET YJ for sale, and am contemplating getting it. Only problem is, I don't know how much to ask for my XJ. Any help would be awesome guys. I'll list all the stuff I can think of, and if any of you can give me a ballpark figure, that would be great. Here goes:

'89 XJ, 4.0L, AW-4 auto, 242 T-case, 200,000 miles but still runs strong, 4" of lift, 32x11.50 Cooper STT's, black wagon wheels (4.5"b/s), TJ flares, Challenger Perf. Alumi-Flex tierod, CP d30 diff skid, Tomken T-case skid, Tomken tranny skid, Tomken tow hook brackets, Uniden CB w/ Firestik antenna, lots of cool stickers <img border="0" title="" alt="[Wink]" src="wink.gif" /> . There is one spot of body damage, but it's not that noticable (damn tree), and the rest of the body is really good. I can't think of anything else right now, but if I do I'll post it.

I was thinking of between 4-4500, or am I dreaming? Thanks guys, Colin

Ugly <img border="0" title="" alt="[Wink]" src="wink.gif" /> , I was thinking about doing that, but IMHO it's not very accurate, especially if you have mods. Thanks though.

hell you must be crazy to wanna sell your xj. your right unless you find someone looking for a quality rig, your going to lose $ on the deal. sounds to me like you have a pretty sweet ride and instead of giving the damn thing away i would either keep it or maybe try to sell it on an xj website. people are always looking for something to build up and seems like you have a lot of quality **** on there already. some xj fanatic would prob jump on something like ur jeep.

I know, I probably am crazy, but I've ALWAYS had a soft spot in my heart for a YJ. I'm thinking about posting on JU too. Thanks Jon

I advise you to seriously consider keeping it and saving up or whatever you have to do if you want another Jeep. Here's only afew reasons why I think you should keep it.

Reason #1: You have put a lot of work into your XJ. It will be only a shell of a vehicle without you. You made it what it is.

Reason #2: You WILL miss the cargo capacity. Think of all the stuff you carry in it and imagine what it will be like to try to fit it in a SWB jeep.

Reason #3: DC sold out on us and discontinued the Cherokee line. No more XJs are being made. It was the original compact 'SUV' back in 1984 that started it all, yet today it is still the only true Sport Utility Vehicle. You own a piece of history.

Reason #4: You MIGHT regret it afterwards and it will be too late - once its gone its gone.

If you've given serious thought to these issues and still want to sell it, then you'll be OK. At least you will be replacing it with another Jeep and not a Honda. Hey, you could get a Rubicon!

Don't worry Eric, I'll NEVER buy an import.

1. You are right, I have put a lot of work into it, but that's a lot of the fun, and it would be nice to have a change of "scenery" to work on.

2. Good point about the cargo capacity. I can't argue that. <img border="0" title="" alt="[Wink]" src="wink.gif" />

3. DC did sell out on us, BUT there are a ton of XJ's out there, and I'm sure I'll get another one in a few years, after I'm out of school and can afford a newer one for a daily driver.

4. You are right, I might regret it for a little bit, but once I take that top down I will totally forget. <img border="0" title="" alt="[Wink]" src="wink.gif" /> (I'm about to make my XJ's doors removable, so you know I have the urge).

I wish I could afford a Rubicon, but there's no way I can, especially while I'm a poor college kid.

i dont know if this will help but last year i got my 94xj with 80k miles and a 2" lift 30x9.5s roof rack and a 5 speed for 6500. i think i got it for cheaper because not too many wanted a 5sp. so i dont know what the hell i am saying but it may give you an idea of what they are going for.
