Sould I sell or part out my CJ-7?

Should I sell my 80 CJ-7 project straight out or part it out?

Have well over more money than I want to think about it tied into this project and selling it out right is easier than researching parts prices.

That's a bummer so much hard work was put into that rebuild. Personally I think part it out. You will get more money for it that way and you will be at least closer to what you have in it. We all know our toys never sell for near what we put into them but I think parting out will be your closest bet to getting most of it back. Good luck!

I vote try selling it as a rolling chassis, you can always part it out later.

Man, you're at the end of the tunnel, 80% of the work is done. Slap it together with what you got even if it's not perfect and enjoy it a bit to reward yourself for that hard work. Plus, it's worth the most as a driveable vehicle even if the body finish leaves a bit to be desired.

If you've lost motivation, definitely don't part it out. Fully parting a vehicle to make maximum dollars is a lot of work. Sale or trade. Trade is definitely an option to offer for something like this. You might be suprised at what people offer.

good luck!

I hate to see old cj's getting parted out. It just seems to be wrong.Try to keep it together and sell it to someone who will do right by it.

Yeah the TBI is nice. Was one of the first things I purchased and installed on the jeep. Was real nice to have the CJ start and run with no problems.

I've bought a couple of CJ's in the past to part out and rob parts from that I needed for myself. I've always made money from the parts and have kept several big ticket items for myself along the way.

Well started the first step on getting rid of it. Placed it on Craigs List locally here so will see what and if any bites. Just know there will be a couple of low balls and then a few idiots that will want to know if they can drive it today. That is one thing I hate about that site is that people don't read the ads.

Well placed it up for $5000 as a rolling chasis so will see what happens. Now just need to finish the research on all the parts a prices so that if I do part it out I have a good start point.

I would say finish what you started or if you had to get rid of it to part it out. The thing with parting it out. Youll spend just as much time trying to find a buyer and pulling parts than to just finish it. By they way it looks like it will be a great jeep when your done.
