Selling my Lj... need help.

Well unfortunate events have turned upon me, and I need to sell my LJ.

I will be picking up one later when I move (probably a TJ).

What is a good asking price for it?

Its a 2005 LJ Hardtop with 58,000 mi on it.

Includes:

-Winch
-31" Coopers
-Side, and Rear corner heavy duty rocker guards
-new brakes and battery
-upgraded front bumper

Thanks guys, I hate to see it go and I would just try and get whats left on my loan for it..

Tough to call. As high as $16-$17K in SoCal/AZ and other spots, down to $13-$14K reported in some other states/areas. Really depends upon your market.

FWIW, my thoughts are with you and others in these tough times. Good luck to all of Us.

Brakes, battery and tires won't do much to improve the sale $$. It is true that bad brakes or tires may hurt a sale, but buyers expect these items to work. Kinda like buying a house with a water heater or a roof, expected.

The winch, rocker guards, and upgraded bumper will only add value for those interested.

Base your price on local listing, used car lots, CraigsList, even if it means going to look at some (kinda like when realtors do comparables when listing/selling a house). Promote well cared for (new brakes and battery) and slightly modded (winch and rockers), as some buyers are turned off by modded/lifted/off-roaded vehicles.

Every market and area is different. Also depends on how fast you want to sell it, set your price high and you may be waiting awhile for that 1 buyer in a 100 that loves it, price it low and someone will buy it just because it is a good deal even if it is not what they want.

Thanks for the responses. Yup I just want to *really* get it paid off. It sucks I have to see it go, but I will be getting another when I can
