I'll give you $50.00 for it. Really, look in KBB or compare it to others that are similar in your area that are for sale.

don't wanna be that guy but i have to agree with drew, you have to look at what others are selling for and take into consideration that people don't look at TJs as 'winter' vehicles, which will affect the amount you can make off of it. If possible hold off until around March or April and try and sell it with reference to 'Just in time for Summer!' or something like that.

Go to the NADA website http://www.nadaguides.com/home.aspx?...=58778&nozip=1, and click used car values.

If it's that stupid, just ignore it then. There's no need to be rude and disrespectful guys. We're all Jeep owners.

Now, that being said. Jake, we'd need a little more info. What size engine, over all condition of the body. That's gonna be more important than what kind of axles you have. Most, except for those who are heavy into off roading, that just think Jeeps look cool, don't give a damn what kind of axles you have. Again, you should check to see what's going on with other Jeep prices. Yes, the TJ is a summer toy.. but, being 4wd, you can also try plugging it as good in the snow.

If it's a 4cyl, I would put a $5500 price tag on it. See what comes up. Then if you get some bites, see how it goes, maybe lower it to $5000. I wouldn't go much below that though. (If its a 6cyl, you can add a grand or so) You can pretty much ignore NADA and KBB because they are not accurate. Your Jeep is as valuable as someone is willing to pay for it. For some reason, Jeeps seem to be bought and sold at higher rates than NADA and KBB. That's a fact I've found living in several different regions of the country.
