Selling My Tj

Curious to know what its worth. 2002 TJ, X, Soft top hard doors, 5 speed, black on black, 93k, 4.0L, 3" lift w/33" tires. I was thinking of asking around $8500. Here's a pic

Id say that was the bottom end of the price range, might get as much as 10k the way it looks n all, with the lift and the tires
Looks great!

why u seling it? sounds like a good price.. I was thinking about selling mines due to insurance and gas.. I drive a lot and gas kills me. then I thought, what car am I going to buy that, I at least like, that will not cost the same.


S2000: no space, and high inurance.

Honda accord: to plain.

Another pickup: same gas problem

Crysler sebring: convertable but, Old folks car

Mustang Convertable: NEWER ONES TOO EXPENSIVE; older ons runs like shit, and end up spending money to make it run and look nice, and drive fast.

I should have kept my mazda 2200 before the jeep.. but I remember why I sold it, and bought the jeep.. It is embarrassing to drive to parties, go to family gatherings (girl side). and friends driving newer cars.. But honestly I could have saved a lot of money and I did not mind driving an old beat up truck.. I just tell myself % more years and the jeep is mines.. sorry for the rant/advice.

you can be lucky that you donīt have the expensive german gas prices, i have to pay about 8.50$ the gallon.

i wish you that you get a very good price for your beautiful TJ.

how long have you had it for?. its about what I pay.. its like another car payment.. but if you got another ride that gets about 20mpg its not worth it,, IMO you would still pay about 200 a month.

I am trying to talk you out of it. due to its such a beautiful jeep. for that price I would jump on it if I was looking.

I remember when I started driving gas was 89cents a gal.. heck I was running out of gas money then in highschool..

This is if a dealer were to sell it
http://www.kbb.com/KBB/UsedCars/Pric...tion=Excellent


and this is if you were to sell if off of your front lawn
http://www.kbb.com/KBB/UsedCars/Pric...uizConditions=

And those prices are without all the extras you have. you can get more than $8500 for it

I think you are a bit on the lower side myself. Two months ago, I purchased a 1998 with 94k miles, 4.0, 5 speed, 4" RC lift and new 33's for $8k. I live in AL and the market may be different down here. Before I purchased the Jeep, I called the bank to check what book value was. The bank would loan up to $9300 for my Jeep. However, the most effective way to find the true market value for your Jeep is to go to autotrader. com, do a detailed search within 200 milles of your zip and see what other comparable make and models are priced at. You have a good looking Jeep, if you decide to sell- GOOD LUCK!

I will say start with 10k and see how it works,specially if you are not sure if sell it or not.
A 2002 less than a 100k and in really good shape as yours is hard to find.

not an exact reference point, but somewhat close...

last April, i sold my 02 TJ Sport, 4.0L, 5spd, 3" lift, 33" BFGs, 50k miles, black on black like yours, hard and soft tops, full hard doors, etc. for $13,000. mine had less mileage, but pretty close otherwise between my jeep and yours.

i would try for at least $10k
