Around here I would say around 5-7k? Just considering its really clean, and had a new tranny put in. Tasteful mods, not teenagered out

Haha, thanks. I will take that as a compliment.

A low mileage 99-03 Durango or Expedition.

Nice rig. But don't post a picture of it towing anything on your for sale ad. That can be a deterrent for some people. Just my 2 cents.

Nice looking Jeep. Around here that would be around 3 to 4 grand.

I'm going to mirror what Moon said. $5k is probably more likely, but you might edge upwards of $7k with all of the maintenance and mods you've done. The 4.7 is a nice engine, too. I don't know if you'll find it worthwhile going to a Durango. It's got rear leaf springs and isn't as refined as the WJ as far as I'm concerned. It also is more problematic from everything I've seen. You'd have a 5.9 in it, right? The efficiency of that engine is beyond terrible by modern standards. What are your reasons for wanting to go with a Durango? More space? I can't really think of any other reasons, but this is your choice so you've obviously got your own thinking behind it. What's currently going on with your Jeep that has you wanting to part with it?

Sorry, I did not see your reply.

Durango and Expedition are off the table. I never realized the poor MPG both got. The WJ gets much better. I was looking for a vehicle of similar room, V8 power and reliability. The other problem is fitting the modern child seats in the WJ. These new child car seats are HUGE now and take up so much space, I have no room while driving (being 6'2" tall). You have to admit the rear leg room is lacking in these. I'm now looking for a low mileage Crown Vic since they get 27 MPG Hwy (with the 2.73 or 3.27 rear axle) and the added rear seat room should help. I will miss the 4x4 in winter conditions, and ride height but my wife has a Pontiac Torrent with AWD if I need it. MY WJ has NEVER left me stranded and has been extremely reliable considering is it a MOPAR. Time to move on to another vehicle to mod.

I can see what you mean. I posted it to show the rear does not sag with a trailer, unlike factory springs.
