03 TJ 4.0 motor

Hopefully in a couple weeks were gonna pull my motor and drop in my new motor. My question is what is my old motor worth? It will have 54k on but it uses oil like its a 2 stroke. I thought about saving it so I can build a stroker but the new motor should last me a long time. I'm thinking about selling it so I can have the tranny fixed for some reason it grinds going into 2nd gear. And if I have enough afterwards maybe get a sye kit cause I'm sure it needs it. What do ya'll think, any advise or knowledge would be appreciated.

Throw it on craigslist. Say something like "any offers... I know what it's worth... Don't low ball" idk then you can get an idea of what local people will pay for it. hoped it helped!

I thought about that and I know what a good one goes for around here that's the reason I went up into Indiana to buy the one we rebuilt to go into it. But since I know how much oil it uses would it be worth it to sell it knowing it cants be dropped straight into another jeep without being fixed first?
