Have you seen it? A lot depends on its condition. The fact that it is stock is a plus in my opinion. Look underneath. If it has quite a few scrapes, dents, gouges underneath it was probably wheeled hard. I think the X models were all 4.0's but I'm not sure. If it is the motor should have a lot of life in it. Remember, condition, condition, condition. If it's clean that sounds like a very good price. Good luck and lets see some pics if you go for it.

Take off the price for replacing the door skin... They aren't that cheap. I have to agree with the birdman why put disco's on if you don't wheel/climb something? And 3 owners for a 6 yr old Jeep seems kinda high, but maybe all the previous owners just weren't any fun... Good luck with your shopping!

Sounds a bit high for 100k+ miles but wranglers do vary in price locally...without photos of the underside condition and the rest of the vehicle it is hard to accurately price a vehicle. Being stock is definitely a plus but on the other hand the three previous owners would scare me a bit...


When you priced the book value, how did you enter what condition it is in? Another concern I have is that since this is at 107k and there has been 3 owners plus as far as you know, only the brakes and rotors replaced, this might be prone to some costly repairs as you drive it more. Check all the hoses and belts for the obvious; cracks, fraying, leaks...open up the radiator and look for rust and note the coolant condition.


Good luck either way as you should have alot of fun with this vehicle.
