Whats this LJ worth

What is this Lj worth? I see many LJ prices all over the place and some that have more miles and in rougher shape than mine going for 18 to 19k and the really rough are salvage LJ's going for 12 to 13k with 100k plus on the clock.

Didn't you have a thread a couple weeks ago about how your LJ was the best jeep ever and worth a huge premium? I guess you haven't gotten much interest, huh?

And it git locked...
http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/f176/...meant-1554888/

I bought mine for $15k 5 years ago. It had:
PSC rockers.
RE 4.5" SF SA lift.
TC drop.
Red neck body lift removal (long bolts standard height mounts).
Dual ARB's.
4.56 gears. (uncorrected speedo)
33" Baja Claws on steelies (two new, two barely legal).
Chopped front bumper with winch mount holes.
Cut up/missing fender liners.
Crappy soft top.
A LOT of south carolina clay.

I bought a crapily built LJ cheaper than bone stock LJ's with more miles. That's the market, your LJ is NOT special b/c of the mods. Banks dont loan more than the KBB value (or close to it). Everything over that must come from the buyer's pocket. Thats a small pool of potential buyers.

Start it at $15k, then bring it down $500/mo until someone buys it.

Think I posted on this last time, but maybe not. It's worth whatever someone will pay for it. While you may love the mods you put on your jeep, it doesn't mean it increases the value. Anything you put on your jeep is there because you like it. You can try and sell it on people but at the end of the day it is still just a jeep LJ. If you find someone that loves it and will pay 20k for it than that's what it's worth. Good luck.

My Jeep is definately NOT "lesser" compared to yours.

What I don't understand is I ask a honest question and yet I get flamed that's what I don't get? Everyone wants to gang up on certain people that they are jealous of I thought high school was over many years ago I guess not.

Someone most like them because they are still in business and its not just the Jeeps they have them for. Don't be upset you can't afford them.

You don't have to worry dude because I see what this forum is like. I would be embarrassed to say I support this type of people.

The honest answer is pretty much the same as what you were told in your prior thread before things turned nasty, there really isn't much special about your jeep. Yes, it may not have been trashed on but there are always better built jeeps out there. If you didn't believe it before, the market has obviously spoken since you haven't sold it where you wanted to. If at this point you don't see all that then none of us can help you.
