Noob needs advice

I have a 2002 wrangler sport with 107,000 miles on it. It's in the shop right now getting a jasper rebuilt engine with a three year warranty put in it. When i get it back I think I'm going to sell it, but have no idea on an asking price. It has wide wheels with allow rims (I think), a few small paint dings, but no rust. It has a soft top thats probably the original it doesn't leak but just has a lot of wear. It's a five speed manual transmission. I'm going to sell it myself in an auto trader magazine. The Blue book value was about 9,000$ but thats without the new engine. So any advice/help on a good asking price and selling it would be much appreciated.

Thank you and Happy New year to you. I'm not very knowledgeable about the technical stuff. It's all stock except for the wider wheel base, rims, and tires as far as I know. I'm selling it because I still owe on it, and the money to fix it could be better spent elsewhere. I'm in the process of buying a house and getting married in June. So I'm working on reducing my debt and being more responsible haha.

I would say 8-9K the new motor would be kind of negative to me, if the 4.0L died with only 107K that would lead me to believe it wasn't taken care of. Most 4.0L go to 200K+ as long as they are taken care of meaning timely oil changes. So if the motor went at 107K what else wasn't taken care of. I am not saying you were the one not to take care of it, but I am just saying. I would offer you 7k because of the new motor, ie possible neglect and start the negotiations.
