I see 2 things slowing you down, A jeep in my experience, sells well in the spring and summer. People just associate a jeep with no top and warm weather. The other thing is its a 4 banger. That alone would scare me off. If you have time, (don't need to sell quickly) I would leave it there. Seems like a reasonable price. It looks in great shape.
try expanding your ad too. Post in Nh, Vt, ma and me cr too. If you haven't already.

Good luck.

It looks very nice. I posted earlier with a higher price, but I neglected to read the entire deal...with the four cylinder you are probably at the high end of your price range. Didn't look at any book value, just going by what I see on the street. A good jeep with a 6 cylinder, around my area, could go as high as 10-12k (equipped appropriately). I've seen 91's for 9100. These aren't stock vehicles though...not sure of the details, but most of these have been lifted and equipped with after market add-ons. I've also seen clean 2000's for 6000.00. Good thing about jeeps wranglers is that they retain their value for a long time.

6 is ok, 5 is a good deal, 4500 would be a steal. Christmas is coming but hunting season will be here very soon, hang on to it and it will sell.

You have a nice rig.
Here in Florida it would sell. But it would sell tomorrow here if it were 4500ish.
Down here the 2.5 isn't an issue but the tires would be. Otherwise she sexy

Looks clean, i think that's a fair asking price, you can always negotiate lower.

I would take off that 3" body lift though, and maybe sell the big tires/wheels separately.

Its like a fish sandwich with ketchup on it. Or, salami on white bread. Meaning that you have a nice, economical clean 4 cyl TJ with tires and wheels that will only appeal to a person seeking an aggressive, off road/ custom looking rig. And, for that audience, you won't find a buyer of a 4 cylinder. And, with 5.5 inches of lift, you scare off the civilian buyers. You may never sell it until it becomes a steal. You could take off the body lift and put some 33's on it and probably sell it and the other wheels and tires separately, for the same price. But, as is, who would the person be who would want it?

In My opinion. I would drop to $5500 to catch peoples eye! and sell no less than $5k. I agree with others the 4banger is slowing you down. But It will sell for $6k to the right person Good luck!

I'm sorry to repeat myself, but you need to get that body lift off and put some 33's on there and then, if you're lucky, you might get $4500 for it. The blue book on that rig is what? $3500?
