I buy and sell Jeeps all the time.Pics are needed for an estimate.What's the mileage and why was the engine replaced? With your facts I wouldn't pay over $7,000 on a good day.

I think he would rather know what you would sell it for?

Don't take offense, just my opinion. Mods you do to the truck rarely appeal to a buyer, if anything it depreciates the value.

Something like that would be priced at minimum of $7000 in Michigan. Check out what they're selling for on Craigslist.

Seeing as how the only thing that has high miles on it that hasn't been gone through it's the body, so i was thinking around 9000

You'll need to wait for the right buyer. Around here all mods and work will be discounted or even counted against you. If I saw this on a lot or CL the question that pops to mind is why did he do all this work, did he do this to hide a beat dog and get sellable? So 6 to 7k

If you are looking at a JK, check out a trade in. You will ALWAYS get more on a trade in.

Huh??????? This is the first time I've ever seen someone claim that. They would give him bottom dollar -$1000 for his Jeep. That's why KBB and the like always have trade in values less than dealer or private values. I'll never understand why people trade in vehicles.
