What's my jeep worth?

Unfortunately I may be selling my jeep here soon, not really sure what I should ask for it so I figured I'd ask you guys.
It's an 86 with a 360 and has a Turbo 350 tranny with Dana 44 rear end. Motor has 20k on it after rebuild. Has a 3" suspension lift with brand new tires and wheels (less than 150 miles on them). Has new ceramic coated Headman headers and a new safari bikini top. I also have a hard top and full steel doors. Has ice cold ac, new bluetooth stereo with a big amp, 10" bass tube, and 6x9's. It has minor rust under entry on both sides and on the bottom of windshield. Frame is in good shape with no rust. The steel doors have soon rust around the window frame. The tranny has a small leak, looks like it may need a new pan gasket, other than that the jeep runs great.
BTW, this jeep never goes off road, it's my weekend cruiser and garage kept

Hard to say, looks like you have a rust problem at least on the windshield and side of the tub.

You will kick yourself for selling it.

It's worth whatever you can get for it! Sorry, I know you want a better answer, but that's the bottom line. Still, maybe you could get a better idea of what you might get for it. What the frame look like? How are the body mounts? I bet you could get 5-6K for it easy; actually, I bet you could probably get more, but that's where your sales skills will have to come into play. For a better idea, you probably should check to see what similar year Jeeps are going for on Ebay and/or Craigslist.

Good luck!

Your air conditioning setup in the dash is very interesting. I haven't seen a setup quite like that before.

Thanks for the reply. I was thinking about starting between $7-8,000.
I've looked on Craigslist and auto trader, the prices are all over the place...
Some going for $5-7,000. Then there's others that aren't THAT much nicer than mine and they're asking $15-20,00. I guess it's like you said, it's worth what I can get for it.
My frame and mounts are fine. The only rust I have is a couple small spots on the bottom by entry way on both sides and on the bottom of my windshield.

I would start higher than that, you can always come down.

What's the story on the ac unit? What type is it/where did it come from. Never seen a factory setup like that

I don't believe $6k + will be difficult, and you can likely get close to $7k out of the Jeep.

Not really sure, LOL. I bought this jeep about 15 years ago. The guy I bought it from had it restored, think it was added then but not certain.

Just to be curious, what did you pay when you bought it 15 years ago?
