A vehicle is rarely an investment that will make you money - at least in the world of daily drivers. Now, some exotics, rare collectables, etc change the math there. Those are out of reach to most of us.

Our 2008 Wrangler (JKU) held its value relatively well ... traded it in for my Ford truck. The Grand Cherokee not so much.

There are lots of vehicles that suffer worse depreciation in the first few years comparatively. Lots of car sites have the information and estimated value ranges.

You are trading money for memories, just depends on what you think is valuable.

On the other hand, if you buy an old one and put time and money into it you still wont get back what you invested. Contrary to popular belief kbb+ cool guy parts does not equal what your rig is worth.

I am past that, and believe mine is currently increasing in value, I think it is likely worth at least as much as I have in it... purchased in 89 for 4k with 14k on the odo..., currently 42k on it, and never seen salt.. road salt that is....

ALL vehicles suck on resale until they become a collectors item (Mustang, vette, GTO etc)
But jeeps actually hold much better than others as long as you compare like conditions.
If you compare any other 25 yr old vehicle that has gone through 3 ft of water, been so deep in mud that it had to be pulled out by two daisey chained jeeps and spent most of it's time with no top or doors I thinkyou will see.
I've had some one offer me 3 grand cash for mine, I wouldn't pay 3 dollars for a 1990 toyota corrolla that was treated the way my rig was.
