whats she worth?

hey guys, just need some advice. I have decided to sell my 94 yj. i have had it for along time and i want a different jeep. one with a bigger engine. i have completely rewired the underside of the dash, blinkers, windshield wipers, they are all on switches. the factory wiring harness was in rough shape from mice and other things. i have removed the factory air box and heater so electric heater could be put in. replaced the transmission. it has a 2.5l, ax5, np231 transfer case. it runs drives 4wd lights blinkers brakes all this works, except the gauges and odometer and trip stopped working after tranny swap. new fuel pump i replaced exhaust manifold, plugs, distributor button and cap, plug wires, all NGK. no back seat gt grant steering wheel. i have rewired the blinkers to a aftermarket blinker switch factory one broke about 3 time. it used to be my daily driver. also rebuilt fuel rail and injectors. i wanna sell it as is. im not gonna pull that "oh its got sentimental value" card out.
engine has about 155,000. transmission about 130,000 is what the guy told me. starts up every time and drives down the road. no tops at all half steel doors including dent, dings, and scratches. i do have new factory soft top hardware tho. can someone maybe give me and idea on wear to start on an asking price? thanx 94 yj, 2.5l

it varies so much based on location, condition (dents, rust, upholstery tears, etc)

to get a starting point, check out KBB.com then deduct for your missing or broken items (top, gauges, etc)

in reality, it's worth whatever someone's willing to pay for it

In my area if everything functions and the wiring was stock you could get around $3500.

With no gauges or a top and "customized" wiring you would be lucky to get $2k.

This time of the year no top will be a deal breaker for a lot of people. If you aren't hurting for $ wait until the weather warms up and put it there with no top. Should net for a bit more $

I would personally look on Craigslist or hell buy a cheap top from quadratec and it would up the resale and look of the jeep tremendously. You could probably get around 3500-3k in my part of the country.
