Says $800 at the bottom. I'd buy it for that if I was looking for a project. If not you could make some cash parting it out. The Warn is worth half that alone. "Seahag"

Unfortunately the winch is not included (darn fine print). I think it seems too high for what your getting but that's just my opinion. I paid $500 for my '95 and while far from good it, is alot better that. Good luck, Dave

He wants 1500 for the Jeep, the tires (not included) he wants 800.
Interesting round headlight conversion. Anyone know anything about it?

I guess it depends on what you actually want to do with it. Do you know how many miles are on the engine? It seems like that and the transmission are about all that it is worth. And maybe the frame, but when he says its been repaired that would make me a little nervous. I'd have to check it out thoroughly first. I also don't think I'd want that axle set up unless you are strictly rock crawling only. I wouldn't pay 1500.00 for it. You're basically going to have to completely rebuild it or part it out.

I don't think that's a round headlight conversion, I think they just backed out the square lights. I might be wrong though. its difficult to tell from just the pics...

The jeeps worth about $600 but the SEAHAG on the hood brings up the $$ big time! I would keep looking. It hard to overcome that much cancer. If it has that much you can see then it will have 2x that you cant see. My yj was rust free for $1700.

That's a really good point!! No matter how good a jeep looks or feels. It will always have twice as much needing done to it then you think. If you want something that is dependable, and that you won't sink 10 grand into rebuilding look for something else. You could always part it. but I agree with yjcrawlr: its worth about $600. And I don't think you'll get a whole lot more than that parting it out even.

I wouldn't give more than $400-$500. Even then, only if I was wanting to build a "trail only" Jeep.

If the tires and the winch don't come with it, then I wouldn't pay more than $500 for it IF there was something there that I wanted.

Oh yeah, thats not a round light conversion. Looks like they are just glued in there to me.

I'm relatively sure that it's actually round headlights via "sharpie" ...those are square lights.

it kinda is worth that and kinda not, if you add all the parts and a clear title, good running motor, its worth a 1000, but the body suck. but body can be replace, as long as the title is good, a good running motor worth 800, then transmission, axles, transfer case. its something to consider

I'd say no, especially since the winch/wheels/tires/top are NOT included.

What you have is 1500 of running parts. If you want to do anything with it other than enter it into a demo derby, or wheel it offroad til it dies, you'll easily spend 2-3 times the purchase price, and a boatload of time/energy.

Spend twice that and get something relatively decent to begin with.
