Value for lifted, ARB, Keg Tapped XJ in AK
Howdy all. I've used this forum for years to keep my rig running. Now I'm going to drive from NC to Alaska to sell it. Why? The AC is on the fritz.

KBB says my 19998, 5-spd, 4wd Cherokee, w/ 200,000K miles is worth about $3,000 if the AC worked. However, It's also got:
- ARB rear axle locker (awesome push-button performance, never stuck yet)
- 3" lift
- 31" tires, custom 1" spaced out black steel rims (not spacers by the way)
- Cold air intake, catback, rear tire bumper carrier... the usual offroad rig stuff
- Plus, 2x keg taps through the rear passenger quarter panel - for a pic.

I'm driving it up to Alaska, hanging out, then selling it. What do you think is a reasonable price to ask? I'm looking for a quick sell even though of course it's priceless :cheers2:

Thanks for any input on what to ask!

Might as well start asking $3k, jeep looks pretty clean.

I've been wanting to do a keg tap system in my XJ for years now. Any build pics?

Up here jeeps like that should get $3500-4500

I bought a stock 97 with 115k for $3300 in February

Ps. sell me the rear bumper please :)

Thanks for the intel MOBBiN! That tire rack was a pain, and pricey, but so worth it. Any ideas on how/where to sell it? Was thinking Anchorage would be best.

dcorn, I'll dig through my old pics. Not sure If I had any. The through the jeep tap setup was a late-night (after copious beers) build with a couple friends and a former body shop worker. Turned out nice. Next time I'd remove the insulation between the plastic inside body trip and the steel body. It got wound around the drills and took forever to get through. That's my main take away. Having a body shop person on hand really helped out too. He knew how to reinforce the metal so it didn't bend if you pulled the tap too aggressively.

Thanks again for the insight and any more!

Anchorage Craigslist. If you put it up for the right price it'll be gone in a few hours. There's lots of people who flip cars up here.

Thanks again for the insight.
I've got it posted here:

And on Craigslist. Dang, I'm already planning on how to make my next Party Jeep and I haven't even sold this one!

The time now is 06:38 PM.
