Yeah depends on condition and where you live. I spent 5000 on a 2000 tj sport with 80000 miles in pretty good condition just rusty fender and needed a new fuel pump which the guy hid from us. The guy wanted 7500 for it but was not worth that much considering the little things. The best way to find out if it was a good price is to check kbb.com

That's a good deal. Bought my 97 TJ, 4cyl, 5spd for $2500 plus fees, $2700 total. Needed seat upholstry and replacement top. Got those from CL for a couple hundred. Had a running, driving complete TJ for $3000.

Then I cut it all apart, and dropped a V8, Atlas, D60s... Now I'm in it $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$

Just bought my 2002 T'J, 4.0 engine, auto tranny, no run, very good condition, 170,000 miles, $7500 +ttl. I'm suspecting many of the miles were tow miles due to the shape of the interior, brake pedal, steering wheel, etc.

Bought a 1998 mall crawler with 31's for 6K. It had 33,000 miles on it and 10,000 were towed behind an RV. Never taken off-road. Everything works great. Think I got a good deal!

I paid 10K out the door for my 2003 X with 74000miles last week. That was almost trade in value. I haven't found anything wrong with it but the dash rattles on bumpy roads. That and the half door window is craked.

I bought a one owner 99 with 239k, 4 cyl, A/C, and a rebuilt motor for 2k. It runs great and the body and top are in good condition, but the interior needed help. I've been lurking here for the past month learning how to fix the issues it had, and I wouldn't take less than 4k for it today. But my wife would kill me if I tried to sell it.
