Whats is a CJ's worth with a YJ Tub ?

My neighbor is tempted to sell his 79 CJ-7(title) but is a YJ/Wrangler tub..
360,T-18,Yukon single piece axles, no A/C. I only crawled underneath once to look at rear frame rust, which it was clean.. Is there anything else I should look at? Looks cleaner then 80% of the CJ's in my area.

Any idea on what to pay?

If the tub swap was done properly, I don't think it should hurt the value. Pics would really help put A value on it though!

The only time a YJ tub would hurt the value is if it was being sold as a "complete restoration" but still had all the YJ differences like the roll bar spreaders, swing out tailgate etc. Things that a purist looking for a completely oem jeep could use as bargaining tools

CJ's are in no way an investment so if it's rust free, built how you want and at a price you are ok with just go with it and don't worry about "value".

The advertised position for a topless, dirty jeep girl has been filled......by my wife. Thanks to all that applied.

What would lower the value for a "purist", can raise the value for somebody just looking for a nice solid, rust free Jeep.

After thinking about it I checked e-bay completed auctions. That gave me a good range. Right now my neighbor wants a little too much lol... Thanks for the help.

Usually people selling their vehicles are asking more than what they are willing to actually sell them for . If you like it , make him an offer .We want to know the price .
