Deal or no deal?

Just made an offer of 14000 plus my 02 truck for a 06 wrangler. It's blue with rims tires and fender flares. It's a 6 speed, with the 4 litre and 52300 miles. Good deal?

My truck is very basic and in rough shape.

What say you?

where did you get your pricing? I looked at NADA Kellys and Edmonds and the average was right around 14500

Welcome to the forum.

A good deal is a relative to each individual. For a person with a lot of disposable income, a good deal is different than a person with relatively no disposable income. So the only one who can make the decision on what defines a good deal is you.

It cracks me up that whenever I purchase a new item, (vehicle, TV...) everybody in my family (in-laws too) always asks what we paid for it. I always tell them, we got a good deal. Obviously we got a deal we are happy with or we wouldn't have bought the item.

You can look up the retail value of the Jeep you're looking to buy. Remember though; more modifications usually means driven harder. You know your truck better than anybody else; we have no idea what "rough shape" means.

If you are happy with the amount you pay / trade & what you receive is acceptable to you; then you made a good deal! But don't expect Howie to come out and shake your hand to congratulate you though.

Kellys ... I gave you prices based on a private purchase from an individual.
If you are buying from a dealer then it would be around $15000
