Where should I attempt to sell my well modified '87 Wrangler

I have an '87 Wrangler that was lifted and had extended flares put on it before I bought it. In my @10 years of ownership, I have added ARBs, changed to 4:11s, added Steel Horse seats. Unfortunately I haven't paid as much attention as I would like, since I started racing, so it has some reliability issues (probably carb. related) and needs a rear main seal as it leaks oil.

I am thinking of selling, but only if I can get enough to make it worthwhile @$7500. I have used Ebay many times, is it my best option?

Ebay or CraigsList would be a good start. But I really would not expect you to get more than 3 or 4K for it. Go ahead and try it.

Thanks, for all the money I have in it, I will just keep it rather than sell that low. Just the ARBs and rear discs were all of the $3-4k. And I do well understand that the sum of the value of the parts is not the value of the vehicle.

Ebay or a Jeep board is probably your best bet

People get competitive on ebay and run up the prices. I sold my last one for $1,800 more on ebay than I had it listed for in the local paper. It was nothing special, just a mild lift and mudders.

I put up a post in general discussion about a guy I know that put his YJ on eBay. He had a 2.5L 1995 with stock gears, 117,000miles, 4" Hell Creek Lift, 2" body lift, a bolt-on bumper hoop, 35" Pro-comp MT's, hardtop, Cragar soft 8's, cd player, and he painted it army olive drab...a few other things. Value in the Kelly Blue Book is somewhere in the low $5000 range (same value as mine) and his auction closed for $8300! I found that crazy that a four banger with stock gears, open diffs and 35's went for that much. It was pretty clean and stuff but thats a lot of money. If you need to sell it, get it detailed really well, get rid of any mud stains and use eBay to sell it. Just my opinon though. Here is a link to the closed auction if you'd like to have a look: http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eB...RK%3AMESE%3AIT

Wow that thing does look bada$$ with the paint, snorkle, fender mounted lights, etc. I'm not surprised it ran up that high. Seems like it more about the appearance when it comes to selling stuff on eBay.
