Kinda freaking out.

Hey everyone i been seeing new posts on tj's going for what i seem to think is kinda cheap. I bought a 98 sport with 107000 mi for 9200. I know its a bit over what kbb says but they are kinda hard to find the right one up here. It has the 4.0 l 5 speed manual limited slip D44 rearend 3 or 4 inch lift quick disconnect sway bar links, aftermarket tie rod a warn xd9000i winch hardtop ac and full steel doors. Also what appears to be stock rubicon wheels. Just wondering your thoughts.

The biggest question is: "is it worth it for you?"

If the answer is yes, then that's all that's needed.

What you might be seeing is that you may have paid closer to the higer-end of the scale for you Jeep but who cares....if you Love it....Rock out!
You didn't over pay....to the right person I'd say you could pull a small profit.

If it is a sound vehicle, I'd say you got a sweet deal.

Really, it all comes down to what its worth to you but if the jeep is in good condition I'd jump on that deal any day of the week.

You're right on the money there are 03's with 130k still going for 13 and up. Don't listen to KBB its usually too high and doesn't take into consideration fair market value. Who knows where their figures come from but it floods the market with crap. Sounds like a nice jeep.

You are supposed to quit looking at prices after you buy something. If you are like me, you will see all kind of things cheaper than what you paid. As long as your happy with it, thats all that matters.

Just the fact it came with a Dana 44 is a HUGE plus, not to mention its excellent American-made Warn XD9000i winch! Nice find, be happy with your new TJ, I would be!

Most people don't take into consideration what's already there for you with a purchase....

If you buy one bone stock and plan on a lift, rims, tires, winch etc... you just added several thousand dollars to your good deal...

Pay a little more for one already set up and you get a BETTER deal....

I say you did just fine.

Kind of depends on your local market conditions, go out of state and price changes $1000 etc.

considering the extras its a fair price. i wouldnt say you got a sweet deal. But i price that seems reasonable for the jeep that you bought.

Exactly what I was thinking! You did good on your purchase, don't worry.
