Fair price for 2005 LJ Rebuilt with very low miles?

Planing on buying a new ride! What would be a fair price for 2005 LJ Rebuilt with very low miles? auto, air, soft top, full doors, rebuilt title, bone stock no mods. This thing has been sitting still for a while, had frame damage, replaced fender, hood, grill, radiator radiator mount, both bags and steering column.

This is my first post. I have been driving a 98 Grand since it was new. Any input would be welcome.

A lot of people shy away from rebuilt vehicles, but if it was quality work i wouldnt pass it up for a good price. I would say 13 grand, im not really sure if the rebuilt title would hold the same value.

There is no price worth the risk for me on a major rebuild (salvage?) deal....I'd pass.... let someone else be the one that hands the profit to the seller.
There have been two of these in my general area that have been for sale for a while, they keep re-popping up...obviously they are not easy to sell.

A lot depends on the damage of course. I would consider one as a trail jeep and maybe a drive on weekends jeep for the right price. I would say under 50% retail of clean title one. daveysjeeps.com has a lot of these might give a better idea....

For reference, I paid just under $13,000 on a clean '05 LJ with about 75,000 miles. Unless you know the shop or person who did the work, or you get a really good deal, I'd stay away.

7 or 8k That way you are safe if you have to put some money in it. Long as the frame is good along with the drive train.

Talked with my bank they said that they would go up to $8500 for a loan. I am waiting on the seller to give me a price as it sits and as repaired. The prices on Davey's Jeeps seem a little high. There was only about $800 difference between the TJ and LJ when they came out. My backup plan is a 97 TJ 100K miles clean title, with 5 speed, full doors, tuffy console, new radio and speakers, new aftermarket wheels and 31" tires. I have checked it and found no rust, original paint is outstanding, but has small tear in top and has no AC. Price on that is $5500.
