I bought my old 2000 2wd WJ for 4500 about 4 years ago so I guess you're about where I was.....Just the time and energy you've put into it. Although I can tell you that having my newer '04 WJ 4wd I feel more assured that I can do more with it....Of course I live out in the country and occasionally have to drive down a really nasty driveway that I've actually had to miss work because of in my old 2wd WJ.

With the new '04, I've taken it down the same driveway without having to mess with anything thanks to the QuadraDrive and it went through it pretty easily. (I've got a creek crossing near the entrance of my property that washes the driveway out when it floods and it flooded a few days ago).

$5000 for a 2004 Laredo.. about 120k on the clock, and a few relatively insignificant cosmetic flaws. Not an unbelievable deal, but I think we could still sell it for a profit.

Just got our 02 with 133K on the odo for 1900. It needs a new emergency brake and tires. Other than that, it will be a great work car.

Kind of weird. Around my neck of the woods WJ 4.0s go from 1700-2500 and 4.7 go from 3000-5500..

Got mine for 3500 (4.7) and had 1100 bucks worth of work done to it.

Paid $10K for a 2004 4.7 Quadra-drive II Limited w/74K miles and every option you'd ever want a couple months ago. Bought it from a dealer as a dd for my wife and it came with a 100K mile power-train warranty so still have 25K miles left.

This may seem like an awful lot of money but to tell you the truth I had to search for a couple months to even find a late model WJ 4.7 limited w/o lots of miles. And the few I did find were selling for about $12K. Was also looking at WK's and sure am glad I went with the WJ body style which looks a whole lot better!

Actually my 93 year-old Jeep-lovin' mommy paid for most of the cost!

Still not sure I'm into the "pimped out" look with the full running boards and plastic rain shields over each door window. But what the heck since it helps my small wife get in/out of it while the rain doesn't come in the windows when cracked.

I just picked up a '99 Jeep Grand Cherokee w/ a blown 4.0 for $400. Body and interior are really nice and everything seems to work, it even still ran when I bought it. Motor is currently out of it and the "rebuild vs. buy used" engine debate begun...

$750 in 2010 because it had a spun bearing.

Then let the shop take care of it for $3000. Then that motor went and I got another for $1200. Then that motor went and rebuilt it last month for about $3000 (including things like motor mounts, fluids, seals, etc.) just to do everything right. Then include the $1000 in a used lift kit, $550 on light bar/roof rack, and somewhere around $700 for other little things

All in all, anywhere between $10,000 - $11,000 into the jeep. Never done the math until now. And I thought I was getting a great deal at $750... Damn
