Selling it privately wouldn't be as bad as trading it in. Dealers don't give hardly any extra $$ for the mods on a trade, but they sure will sell it at a higher price. I have taken a few Jeeps into a dealer for a trade in appraisal and every dealer is different. Some will know what they're getting and actually give you a little bit more money for the Jeep, others will see it as a liability and give you under KBB value.
You'll be better off either putting a classified ad on this forum or CL and seeing what kind of offers you get. You can also take the Jeep back to stock and trade it in then sell the parts separately. You'll get the biggest bang for your buck that way, but it could take a long time.
I hope this gives you some idea of what to do with your Jeep!
