I bought a set of AT2s for my old Jimy and loved them. In fact, I liked them so much, I bought a set for my ZJ when I got it. They were great tires. They're definitely more quiet than the Duratracs. They handle themselves well on and off road. I don't think you'd regret it.

I vote Duratracs. I love mine. They've taken everything I've thrown at them so far. Mud, sand, snow, rocks, logs, tree stumps and they've held up great. They're surprisingly quiet too and ride great. Prior to them I had GY Silent Armors load range E and it rode like a dump truck, Duratracs are nice and smooth. If I had to do it all over again I'd pick Duratracs again, but another size bigger.

Yup. Just need to make up my mind on how much money I should spend. I should be able to have plenty of fun weekend outings with a 2" lift and some bigger all terrains

Never going to get 6K for it, thats why its not selling. You wont even get close to that in parts. Much better off coming down to a realistic price and selling it whole.

I gotta say, that thing looks great. But the sad sad reality is when it comes to performance upgrades 90% of the time you'll never get back most of what you put in. Most of that other 10% is reserved for classics and when you intend to flip something from the get go. I talked to a guy the other week who had just sold his XJ. Was in it for probably $9,000 and had been trying to get $6,500. Was trying to sell it for a year and nothing. By then it needed new tires and a few other things so he put another $1,200 into it and dropped the price to $3,500 since he needed it gone. It took a couple months but it finally sold. We have an expensive hobby, if you really need it gone accept the most you can get and move on. It'll probably save you money in the long run.

Side note if you're looking for a hobby that's actually profitable get into gun smithing/customization. When those guys sell something they've been working on they actually MAKE money .

It is a very nice ZJ and at $3500 it will sell. I dont see it bringing more than that though.

I'm $6,000 into my ZJ. I'll be happy if I break even on the price I bought it for. ($1200)

I've bought and sold a number of cars. Profiting is very difficult, especially if you modify the vehicle. A modified vehicle has a narrower range of potential buyers, and more money invested. You will never profit on a modified Grand Cherokee. Grand Cherokees just aren't rare enough to command a high asking price to begin with, and stock ones are most often preferable to modified ones, and listed for cheaper prices. The choice is obvious.

Thats all true but keep in mind he's got it listed in the right place. None of us would buy a Fiat, but post it on a Fiat forum and it will sell. Chances are someone here or on another Jeep forum may pay more than the guy surfing craigslist for a new toy. I sold my street/strip trans am about 5 years ago. $16.000 invested into the car. Got $5500 for it. Just the way it works. You always lose money when you sell a vehicle. The only way to make money selling cars is to buy them very cheap, clean them up, put next to nothing into them, and resell it. Thats obviously not what he's doing here at all this was his daily for a while but still. Anyway good luck with the sale.
