2000 TJ value?

Hey all,
I have a 2000 TJ 4.0L. My frame is completely rusted out. The rest of the Jeep is strong with some upgrades (suspension, wheels, sound). It only has 136,000 miles on it. It's never been in an accident and the wheeling has been light.

In order to drive it/pass inspection, it will need a total frame swap. This process is too much for me. I found a guy that is interested though. He told me to shoot him a price. What do you think is fair?

Just looking for some unbiased opinions. Since I know how much time/work/money I've put into it over the last 12 years, I'm going to think its worth more than it is. Thanks.

I only have one pic on my phone, but JF says the file is too large. I'll have to figure out how to condense. I'll try this afternoon.

Items on Jeep:
-2.5" budget boost susp lift (coil spacers) with Rancho Shocks & quick disconnects (approx 1 yr old)
-BFG 31x10.50 R15 tires (5)
- Rugged Ridge Black Steel Wheels 15"
- 6.5" Sony Xplod speakers in sound bar
-6" Sony Subwoofer in center console (mod)
- Pioneer CD/mp3 player with aux input
- New (>6 months) radiator & heater core
-Hardtop & newer Softtop (approx 3 years).
- Rain/Dust cover

I think that's it...but I'm sure as soon as I hit send, I'll remember something else.

It will take a lot more time but Im sure you could part everything out cheaper than this guy is going to want it for. If it has a hardtop and hard doors that is $1000+ right there.

I sold a 2000 Sahara with a completely toast frame for $3100. I listed it on Craigslist Philadelphia for $3500 with a Google Voice phone number set to forward to my cell phone, so noone knew my real number: Within the next hour about 7 people called me, and somone bought it the next day. Under 24 hours, cash in hand!

I was totally honest about the condition of the frame in the ad, and when people called, but that Jeep STILL sold itself! Full doors, both tops, 4.0...

Also, I polished that Jeep for about 2 hours and took 40+ pictures, uploaded to Photobucket, and linked to that album from the Cragslist post. The time I spent in cleaning the Jeep and advertising it well really paid off!

^ make it look as good as you possibly can, wash, wax, engine clean, etc. it will go a long way towards getting the most money.
And as already mentioned, make sure your crystal clear about the frame condition and the inability to get it past inspection.
As far as pricing, I would look for similarly priced jeeps go for where you live and subtract $1500(?+) for the frame? plus some more for labor, what ever that price would be. If the price you set is too high, I'm sure the guy will beat you down to where your comfortable, just don't give it away.
