I'm not even getting any bites on mine at $14000. I guess the market just isn't there right now.

I'm not sure it's the market not being there but being lower. I know we all highly value our rigs and their mods but we get literally pennies on the dollar on the used market for them. You guys should scope out the prices on edmunds.com or kbb.com and go from there. Then run some searches yourself through craigslist.org and maybe autotrader.com to see what other asking prices are on similar Jeeps.

Just running the numbers on my own Jeep as an example (not that it's for sale), here's what I plugged in:

2001 Wrangler
4.0L engine
Automatic transmission
90,000 miles
Yellow color
Full steel doors
Alloy wheels
Tilt steering wheel

Condition: Average or Good (I'm being kind to my own rig here)

Kbb = $9,600
Edmunds = $5-7k

I got dinged on edmunds because the condition was only average.

To the above I'm also running the following notable mods:

Rubicon D44 rear axle
Truetrac LSD up front
33" tires (new)
SwayLOC swaybar system
OBA conversion
2.5" lift w/ OME shocks
Warn Winch*
Rear shock shifter mod
Belly-up low-profile skid plate
SYE / CV driveshaft


Sure, there is some nice-ish stuff in the parts list but I doubt I'd get much extra and would probably try to list my rig about $2k over the KBB price as a starter, say, around $11k and go from there.

Don't mean to rain on anyone's parade here but just trying to be practical: used, modified Jeeps don't command they money they should. Though I think clintrivera's rig could probably get a bit more than normal due to his V8 engine swap.

Best of luck.



* Depending on what my plans were post-sale, I might keep the Warn Winch and mount it on another rig.

That's kinda odd...maybe prices have gone down lately? Cause before I purchased my TJ I researched it and it was right on the money as far as what the seller was asking. I looked up KBB, autotrader.com, and even some dealers (asking what they would pay for it to be on their lot).

I forked out 16K for:
06 TJ Golden Eagle
73K miles
4.0L
6spd
Hard top with full metal doors
Manual locks/windows
6 disc CD changer
Almost pristine condition. One tiny rust spot (1/8 inch by 1/3 inch). Was missing tire iron. Sub did not work. No signs of off road use (no scratches or scrapes under body at ALL). No rust on frame at all. I am the 2nd owner. Rear main/oil pan leaks...but it's a typical problem.

Just seems odd you are getting no bites....could be also people already have their "4X4 for the winter" type of vehicles. I think interest in off road vehicle purchases spike around August-October and March-July... Maybe hang on to it till spring?

trade new truck in on something she wants, go get old pickup for you, (tow rig) and then keep jeep.


It's a jeep thing, those who sell don't understand. Or is it you had the jeep thing and it stung when you peed.

what's up with everyone selling their heeps? I plan on going with you all on the next run. poker run on the 19th also in elbe, january.
