Hey guys. I have a 94 YJ, but one of my closest friends has an 05 Sport that he's selling and wants me to handle the sale for him.
He's over in Iraq for the next year serving. The cool part is that he told me to take it for a drive once a week to "keep the fluids fresh." Ha ha, no complaints here.
Anyway, its a yellow 2005 Sport with black OEM top, full doors, 6 spd manual. 3.73 gear ratio with D44 rear. It has other options too like the sound package (8 inch subwoofer, ipod hookup). I'm unsure on the exact mileage, but somewhere between 32K and 38K. Last time I hung out with him I remember 30-something on the odometer.
The only changes he made to it is that he put a push bar on the front bumper, and it has Rubicon rims and tires. (Original rims already sold.)
He called me today and informed me of his decision. He wants me to make a webpage for him with all the pics and info. I asked him what he wanted to sell it for, and he replied, "I don't know really. Ask on the JeepForum you're always talking about for me." I told him he'd be better off selling it to a person who knows Jeeps because they'll understand the difference between a D44 and D35. Anyone else just looking for a Jeep wouldn't understand why its "worth more."
So sorry no pictures yet. I won't have the vehicle in my garage until next week (its currently at his girlfriend's house and she can't drive a stick nor does she have a garage). But I can assure you this vehicle was well maintained because I used to do the maintenance for him (No offense to him, but he's not much of a wrench turner.) Oil changes every 3K miles, tranny fluid and diff fluid changed once a year). He was my roommate in college and we used to offroad together places where our stock Jeeps could go.
The vehicle will be in Old Forge, PA (near Scranton, north eastern PA) if anyone on this forum is interested. But as the title of the post indicates, I'm just trying to help him get a general idea of what fellow TJers would pay for this vehicle. He doesn't want to get screwed on a trade in, so he's looking for private party sale.
Edit: I just found some pics on his facebook profile. I'll get better ones next week, however. At least this gives you a general idea of how it looks.
