Milemarker hydrualic winch
Sky Jacker 6"

nice looking jeep. i think 14000 woul;d be high, you can get 2003, 2004 rubicons for less than that with half the miles. these would be mostly stock of course but you wold have a much newer jeep with rubi drivetrain. i've been looking at buying a jeep for a while now. i would say around 9000 was the going price. i see some in the 14000 to 16000 range but i doubt they are moving. beautiful jeep by the way.

Price

Probably looking at around 8 to 9 thousand. I know you have more in it but with the economy you might be dissapointed.
Good Luck

A pricing method, not a price

One way of getting to the neighborhood of a price that you can ask/offer for a vehicle is to a) use the "blue book" services (Edmunds.com, Kelly Blue Book [kbb.com], and [maybe] NADA). Each of them work a little differently, but work within their parameters to describe your vehicle as best as possible. They will give you a range of prices based on condition and type of sale/purchase (private party, trade-in, dealer retail, etc.). Be sure to use your zip code, as Jeep prices vary widely from area to area.

Then, since your Jeep has lots of aftermarket stuff that won't be well-represented in the book value you just calculated, take the cost of your accessories that weren't included in the book value (fender flares, aftermarket bumpers, whatever) and add 50% of their original cost to you to your book values you got from Edmunds, KBB, etc. Now you have a value range for your vehicle. Pick a price from that range to ask/offer.

You can use the data you gathered to justify your price when talking to a buyer/seller, and they will probably then counter with their own opinion about how valid those values are in your situation. All of this just gives you a basis, a foundation for your price. In the end nothings matters other than the right buyer and the right seller coming together. Towards that end, advertise as widely as you can if you are selling, but be prepared to deal with scam offers if you advertise on the Internet.

truth is

Truth is there is a asking price, and a selling price !
It looks very nice and I know you have a bunch in it ! But you see tons on ebay for big bucks not selling.
I have been selling 97-98 some with extras some not for 6500-7000
and I would say as nice as yours is 8000-9500 is reality.
But there again there is always someone with more money than brains.
Good luck very nice TJ
