Help pricing my 96 zj

I am thinking of selling my 96 since I was just laid off. I am trying to decide what it is worth and if I should unload it since I could desperately use the cash. Here are its details:

96 ZJ Laredo 4.0, 242 (burns zero oil)
256k
Newer trans (shifts well)
Stock axles (D30/D35-3.55)
5" IRO critical path lift with non adjustable short arms
DT shocks
TNT frame stiffeners
33x12.5x15 BFG AT (5) mounted on outlaw 2 rims 3.75 BS
-two un mounted spares
Stock front tow hooks
Factory skid plates
Hitch
4' firestik 2 antenna
CB (can't remember the brand at the moment)

Within the last 2-3 years, I have replaced the following:
Almost full cooling system - All metal Radiator from Radiator barn
-Water pump
-Fan clutch
-Hoses, t-stat
Alternator
Starter
Power steering pump
Full Tune up
Tie rod ends
Hubs (2)
Exhaust
O2 sensors (both)
Brakes

Body does have considerable rust and some trail damage
RR upper control arm mount needs to be repaired, no longer mounted to frame

I have approx 2 full sheets of 3/16 plate steel that I was going to use for repairs and to build bumpers that I would include in sale
I also have a second set of front doors that I was planning on turning into half doors

No stereo
Interior is in good shape, no rips or tears in seats.
Carpet is stained

No longer has the crappy aftermarket headlights.


So, what do you all think? In my mind, based on what I have spent on this rig, I would want to get 1500-2000 for it. I know if I parted it out, I could get much more but not sure if I am that motivated to do so. Thanks.

Sorry to hear you got laid off man that sucks!

That price sounds reasonable to me, given all the things done to it, if you find the right buyer you could easily get 2k I would imagine.

If you do decide to part out, i'd love to talk to you about the lift and/or tires.
