The WJ would definitely leave me lots of cash for the build since I got a screaming deal on the red one in the picture. A QD2 Hemi WK would be the only one I would consider.

No I bought it on Ebay. That was you? Small world! Of course the stock rear sway bar didn't work so well with the JK axle so it's long gone.

A "cheap" WK in these parts is $10K. There would be no way to afford one unless I sold the Wrangler. I've built 2 XJ's, 2 TJ's, 1 YJ, and 1 ZJ. (not counting the 10 or so Jeeps I've flipped).

I've only regretted selling one.

I really had no idea where to price it. I stopped keeping track of how much I've spent on this thing, but I have a feeling it's more than I'm asking. I'm right around the price that people are asking for stock LJ's so I' don't think I'm too out of line.

I'm a criagslist veteran, so I'm pretty well versed in all the crap that comes along with posting there. It amazes me what people will ask or offer over email or text. Most people aren't quite as brave face to face though. I can't wait for the "hey, will you trade for a 84 Subaru Wagon and a 8 year old cat?"

Oh for sure. Nothing yet, but I have some positive feedback from my local Jeep forum.

People like that piss me the **** off. I was trying to sell my dirtbike for $3,500, which was right below NADA and Blue Book. The thing had less than 50hrs and was garage kept...basically it was brand new. I had one guy call and tell me he could only give me $2,600 for it because it wasn't worth more.

I was just like "Are you ****ing kidding me".


I hate Craigslist as a seller.

My dad was in the car business forever. He always said that NADA and KBB were just a guide. In the end, it doesn't matter what the book value is, as long as there is someone who sees the value in what you are selling.

That's what I don't get. If you are in the market for something and you see something priced far above what you would pay, why waste your and the seller time? Move along and find another one.

Well the jokes on that guy because I just sold it for $3,300 Sunday.


I don't understand that either. I had tons of people offering me trades or lowballing me in general when I said price was extremely firm and specifically no trades.

B/c the seller is probably high balling in anticipation for the buyer to low ball him. Then he negotiates to his bottom dollar.

I don't understand the buyer asking "what's your bottom dollar." Make an offer and we'll go from there. I always respond back with my asking price or "what's your top dollar?"

Nice, it pays to be patient. That's usually not a quality I posses. I've gotten offers even when I bold "very firm" and "absolutely no trades". It's gotten to the point I don't even put a firm price anymore. I simply add a little buffer above the lowest I will take and go from there.

High balling and low balling are slimeball techniques. I won't deal with anyone doing either. That's why I usually put "offers in person only". I have yet to have a person low ball me in person.

I think the "what's your bottom dollar" thing comes from people who aren't comfortable with or skilled at negotiating. I usually just give a number a little higher than my bottom dollar and go from there.

I'll ignore anything I feel is more than 15% above what I'd pay. I usually start 10% below when buying. The used car salesman techniques get ignored or lead on a wild goose chase.

That's pretty funny. I probably would have done it, I love dogs.

Pit bulls? No, I don't think I can come close to a story like that!

Not me. I don't like anything that can't take care of itself.

I've installed the new poly performance front brake lines. They are around 2" longer and much beefier. They also angle away from the tire a little and are perfect for this Jeep.

On another note, I still have a trip to Moab next month, so If I'm going to have enough time to build a rig for it I need to sell the Jeep very soon.

Sooo......

I dropped the price to $16,000 Get it while it's hot!
