Thinking of selling my 2010 JK

Hi all,

I'm thinking of selling my JK. I love it and have since I got it but I moved to China for "6 months" and have now been there for 2 years and for sure will be there another year at least.

I drive it a bit when I come home a couple times a year but I hate it just sitting there declining in I have come to the point where I will likely sell it. I am told by my local jeep dealer that the wranglers hold their value well so before I through it up on craigslist I'd like some help in putting a value on it. As I sid I have been away for 2+ years and have no idea what it is worth any longer.

I'll describe it below and add pix if the forum allows. (it's been a while since I posted)

2010 Sahara, 2 door 41225 miles
Red Rock in color
Nav and DVD player with mod to run DVD or camera while driving
hard and soft top
Synergy Suspension lift components and springs (5.5")
Ripp Supercharger
Ripp long tube headers and H-pipe with cats
Borla cat back
Fox adjustable nitrogen shocks
Fox steering damper
4:88 gears
Dana 44 rear with ARB locker
Dana 60 1 ton front with locking hubs and grizzly air locker
Overkill engineering front bumper
Orfab rear bumper and rear tire mount
Superwinch 9.0 with synthetic cable
ARB compressor mounted to mater cylinder bracket

I think that is most everything. The Jeep runs great. I drive it a few miles maybe twice per year, it otherwise sits most of the time with the battery disconnected and it has been sitting for most of the past 3 years.

Let me know what you guys think would be a good starting point. KBB gives the low 20's but I would think it is at least worth the mid to high 20's?

The sad reality of it is this -- A non jeeper who is just looking to buy a car will only pay blue-book no matter what you done to it.. and a jeeper will look at your mods as stuff they will want to replace and how much you possibly damaged it driving it off road so either blue-book or less. Moral to the story don't buy a jeep as an investment thinking the more you add to it the more it will be worth. But hey shoot for the moon the worst that can happen is you get shot down.

I have attention defiiiii hey is that a rabbit?

I'm going to side with Cyberpyrot as he has his points.

With that being said, when the JKs came out in '07, my local Jeep dealers were flooded with TJs (sad to say). One dealership threw on those chrome grills on all of the TJs to make them look shinny. (Cheaper then a coat of wax?) Well I bet anything that they sold them all for more then they paid in trade! So shine the puppy up and price it for three-four grand higher then blue book and see what happens...
