from the posts here some people must think the frame is made of gold. around here a clean yj goes for 5k and up but 10,500 for a project jeep is out there. but I disagree that mods decrease the value. If the work is done correctly with quality parts the seller should be able to recoup some of his investment.

So happy I started this thread. The same guy who told me his jeep was worth 6k also said his 2.5 was pushing 300 bhp. Like seriously.

This. I have had my Jeep for 8 years and my boat for 7. I have about beat through my laundry list on the jeep of mechanical fixes (never had any rust either) and still spend more time upgrading than fixing. I have about got everything I need on my boat for what we do with it. If I were to sell either just for the purpose of getting another I would probably end up back where I started and it would morph back into what I have now.

The modifications don't make a vehicle of this caliber valuable. The lack of mods, mileage and rust make it valuable. I could care less about someone else's lift or their choice in tires. I prefer a stock vehicle; a clean canvas.
