Whats my Jeep worth?

Whats up y'all. Just trying to get an idea of what my Jeep is worth. It's a '95 ZJ Limited with 160k on the clock. I tried KBB and NADA blue books but their prices are not very consistent so I thought I'd give the experts (that's you) a try. I've got an ad up on my local craigslist and I'm currently asking $3700 with the hopes of selling it for around $3500. Check out my ad and see what you think. Am I asking too much?

http://westslope.craigslist.org/cto/2824276681.html

Thanks for your help!

That's a nice strategy to advertise your jeep on the general discussion page instead of in the classifieds.

Well played.

Wow, thanks for the warm welcome bro. I'm not trying to advertise it to you because I wouldn't expect any of you to drive cross-country for an ordinary Jeep like mine that is nothing special... and I would post it on the classifieds but your forum doesn't allow it for new members, which is really kinda lame. The reason I posted it up is because it has a few minor issues, and I wanted your opinions on whether or not they might affect the value much.

So anybody other than Foundrygrump have any opinion on that? Thanks.

it's not worth that much unless it's in perfect shape. I bought mine, a 95 Orvis, for $800. Bought it with 174,xxx on the clock and it didn't need a whole lot done to it (at the time anyway...it's been breaking things ever since....Hello Death Wobble!!)

I've had 2 93' Zj's. I bought my 4.0 (needed work but drivable for $1200) I paid $1600 for my V8 (drivable needed some work). I paid what I did due to the fact the interior wasn't shot, the paint job wasn't too bad (minor issues) and it had 134k on it at the time. If my Dad wasn't a mechanic, if I hadn't had prior experience fixing common age related Jeep issues (door harnesses, VIC issues, stereo etc.) and I didn't have a shop to fix it up in, it wouldn't have been worth it. (in my opinion). Being that you're in Colorado you can probably expect to get more for it here than elsewhere. I tend to agree with WhiteOut though.

No idea what its worth, but I noticed you said the rear wiper doesn't work. If you pulled the fuse for your stuck antenna, then that is why. 95s with the tow package have the rear wiper on the same fuse as the antenna. If you want the antenna motor not to run, you need to pull the appropriate relay under the glovebox.

Okay, sounds like I need to lower my price quite a bit... I'm a bit surprised but I guess I can believe it. I bought this Jeep 8 years ago from an old couple with 60k on it for $5500. I thought that was a good deal cause it was in perfect shape... It was kind of like one of those too good to pass up type deals... Anyway, I put 100k on her and have never had any mechanical issues besides a leaking tranny which I got fixed for 300 bucks. I guess I just figured for as reliable as it's been for me that it would hold its value fairly well. Apparently, I guessed wrong...

So I'll probably lower my expectations by about a grand and hope for the best! Thanks fellas.

Highlonesome, thanks for your input. I'll look into it. I never messed with any of the fuses or relays and have never looked into why the antenna doesn't go up and down cause I usually just listen to XM. I can hear the antenna motor work every time I shut off the engine but the antenna just stays put. Maybe it's just disconnected? Also, the rear wiper does make some noise like it's attempting to work when I flip the switch but it seems to be stuck cause it won't budge

I just sold my 94 with 142k miles with a 2" lift and 31s for $2000. I'd drop the price some. I had mine at $2500 OBO. Good luck with the sale.

If it is making some noise you can try removing the arm, cleaning and lubing the stud and putting it back on. Sometimes the nut gets loose and dirt and crap gets stuck in there.

Cool thanks, I'll look into it along with the antenna... Also do you have a preferred Jeep parts website where I might find stupid little parts like the fog light lens and volume knob I'm missing? Or am I better off finding these at a junk yard?
