Value I should except for my Jeep

So I got a little to close for comfort with a couch on the freeway a couple weeks ago. Been jocking around with the insurance company regarding the value they want to give me for my WJ as they are totaling it. I am not sure if they are still low balling me or not on their offer.

Specs - 2001 WJ Limited V8 4x4. 130,000. Good condition. No modifications done to it. Located in San Diego so there is hardly any rust on it. I have been trolling CL and the like for a valuation but most of the are from rediculous dealers that just put call for price. I cant really use that for comps.

So what is a fair value, keeping in mind I want to replace it with another WJ in the same condition (or better I guess).

$3500 - $4000 and try to buy it back for a few hundred and part it out. Just an idea.

Wow that is way low. There is no way I could buy a replacement for those price. They are ranging anywhere from $5500 to $9000. I have even seen one at a dealership asking $10500.

Have to look into buying it back.

I bought my 01 v8 limited 133K back in January for 3Gs flat. Owner was asking 4g. And it's in great shape plus black exterior!

You're not going to find an 01 anywhere for 10k.

I agree 3-5k, depending upon location is fair.

Typing on phones sucks.

After you agree to a price with your agent ask if you can buy it back. He will probably lay it out that way and give you the option.

I just totaled our WJ (wife's jeep). It was lifted 3", 32" km2's, black, limited, v8, no rust and 181,000 mi on it and we got $7200 for the jeep. We bought the jeep back for just under $1000 and found another 2001 jeep WJ 60th anniversary with less than 100k mi and it cost us $1000 out of pocket. We swapped the lift and tires over and sold the wrecked jeep for $600.

Just picked up an stock 02 with 80k on a 4.0L for just under $5k. I think $3-5k is about right.

WJ are almost double what most of you pay away from southwest U.S. He is in SD. I'm in L.A. He is right. But same goes for my 96 Caprice. KBB will say $2k, but to find a clean one will cost double. So technically, the naysayers are right too.

First post - thought I'd start this thing off with helping someone else.

I just purchased my WJ last night... 2004 WJ Limited. 4.7 (haven't check if HO yet). 85k, slight passenger side quarter damage, but otherwise just general scratches... all leather, nav system, etc... Before taxes/ad valorem/commission it was $4400... drove off the lot at $5250. In GA btw.

Hope you can find a good donor to swap your stuff over into if that's your path! Good luck!

I bought my '04 Limited every option (heated seats, dual digital climate control, tow pkg, skid plates, only thing it lacks is Upcountry) with 4.7L motor 247 Tcase and Varilock axles completely stock with 58,000 miles on it last fall for $9000. It was in the best condition I've seen a WJ in when I bought it.

I've lifted it since purchase so the Non-Upcountry was a non-issue for me.

I'm running into the same situation and just starting to look at options. My daughter was rear ended which damaged the bumper and just a bit of the tail pan. Besides the tank protector, seems mostly cosmetic. Adjuster mentioned there is probably $2000+ in damages and they will likely want to total it. If they total it and we buy it back, can we just fix it and put it back on the road? Its certainly drivable.

It is a New England 2000 4.0 with 165k and in great shape interior and out, new brakes and tires, transmission rebuilt a year ago. We've had it since new and it is a solid car. I would hate to go out to have to buy another. And there is just a bit of sentiment there.

I'd upload an image but I don't think that is working yet.
