A lot of Jeeps are bought and sold on here. Most of the new owners, become members.

I gave you an excellent starting point on the other thread. Like I said, you should start at 20 grand and negotiate from there.

I saw in the picture that it already has black steelies and larger tires, a major plus. The lift is okay, but if you want to maximize your profit you should add a 3" body lift. Also rubber floor mats are a sought after item, as carpeted ones are not condusive to offroading. Also again, get a roll of electrical tape and wrap all wire connections with a good amount of tape so prospective buyers know all connections are well cared for, also an offroad necessity (you don't want water in there.)

Honestly, if you want cash sell it on ebay. If you want a new mustang, use it as a trade. If you don't back off you could probably trade straight up on a brand new car with a sticker at 25-27 thousand.

Good luck :roll:

Good choice. Take the time fixing it up. Before you get your licence.

You need to realize that some of the existing members don't pay attention to detail in the posts for many reasons, alcohol induced blindness is the main reason :lol:

Maybe if you didn't start two different threads with , "im a newbie". People here might give a damn. :ANAL:
If you see me driving a Jeep, don't wave. It's not me.
