at that price it should be able to compete at Pebble Beach...oh wait they want correct restorations.

If I could 10 marks like him, I could "restore" Jeeps for a living!

"Front needs matching gears..." So if it is in 4wd, will the drive train be damaged by the front wheels spinning @ a different rate than the rear wheels?

Not on ice or if all four are on blocks.

That's why I don't understand people trying to claim "no Jeep is worth 10k" and such.
Sure they are. Lots of them are. Being a "Jeep person" doesn't automatically mean you can/should do everything yourself....some people can't or have nowhere to do that. So they have to pay someone.

If you can get a kickass Jeep that's 85-90% of your "ideal" Jeep for 10-15k, I say it's easily worth it. (assuming your ideal Jeep isn't a rusted out beater to thrash on the trails)

If someone has taken the time to break a vehicle down to the frame, and fixed everything....rust, etc, and done lots of mods, etc......how can anyone say their Jeep isn't worth 15-20k?

Look at Fatman's Jeep. Look at Keith460's Jeep. Either of those dudes could get 20k for theirs, easily, IMO.

Some folks here seem to think that no matter what you do to a Jeep, they're only worth so much. Not true.
They seem to think that if you buy a Jeep for say, 4k, and it's truly a 4k Jeep, that no matter what you bolt on it, it's still a 4k Jeep. Wrong, and they are proven wrong every day, when people buy those types of Jeeps for double that.

Hell, if old Camaros in nice shape are worth 20k now, why aren't nice Jeeps worth that? Takes just as much work to make the Jeep nice. That work is worth something....might not get every penny you spent, but if a guy goes out and spends 25k to duplicate Fatman's ride, you can't tell me that Jeep is only worth 8k, simply because "it's a Jeep".

Quite honestly, I think everyone here that has a nice Jeep that they've put time and effort like that into should be insulted, because to say a Jeep that has 25k or more in it, PLUS their labor, isn't worth anywhere near that much is essentially saying their labor was worth nothing.
I know I own a YJ but i was reading this thread and in my opinion a Jeep is worth exactly what somebody is willing to pay for it. If a jeep is overpriced no one will buy it. If you insist on leaving your Jeep at the same asking price for months and months with no interest then you may never sell it, which means to me you don't really want to sell it,

I agree. It's a free market, and it's interesting to see what does and doesn't sell at a given price.

My point in starting this thread was to bring attention to high priced Jeeps that had obvious flaws like the nylon zip ties holding on the license plate, a tangle of wires hanging down from the dash, incorrect or funny descriptions, and stuff like that.

Or a "restoration" that is clearly not. I will say that it has a lot of creature comforts and a lot of money invested in it. Someone may walk away with it, but the more accurate description is a "resto-mod," and a very nice one, at that.

So, what I think you are saying is this thread may have gone a little off track? I agree a Jeep is worth what every the market will support. I have two '53 M38 in different degrees of assembly, shape, condition, what ever. Both priceless!
