Exclamation TJ being sold with 4,900 miles.

Found this little gem. Figured i'd post it here if anyone would be interested.

I don't understand how you could have this and not drive it.

Nice TJ wow.

Seller seems to be a tad angry don't you think?

So basically the seller wants about a $8,000 premium for the low miles, put another way, he wants about a 45% premium for the mileage. Hmm......not sure that is going to fly.

There was a 2003 Rubicon out here in CT in July of 2012 with just 9,000 miles on it, price was $17,900...I raced over to the dealer lot with a cashier's check but 5 minutes before I arrived someone else bought it. That Rubicon was amazing, looked brand new.

Using that '03 Rubicon as a gage, I would say this Sport is over-priced but that is just my opinion only.

I saw this as well while browsing Craigslist. Some rich old guy will probably buy it for his collection or something

Thinking of all the cars I could get for 20k used, I have to say 12 year old jeep doesn't make the list...

He won't get the asking price...low mileage or not it's still 12 years old.

She would kill me if I bought another one anyway.

Actually KBB puts the value at $17,900

The first thing you would have to do is replace the 12 year old tires.

I have a feeling this jeep will leak oil very soon from just about every seal... If you dont drive it seals deteriorate.

That one has been floating around for a spell. Over priced, but if he waits long enough I'm sure someone might be willing to bite.

It's not as cool as this Jeep though....

I think it is worth the money asked. If want a TJ and you want a new one, you do not have many to choose from. I would rather buy his TJ with 5k miles than what the make and sell now, for more than double his asking price.

the options I see on this Sport would be:

Ecco Wheels
A/C
Side steps
CD player

other options possible but I cannot see are the D44 axle and Sentry Key, assuming there is no hard top because the ad makes no mention of it. So this is a low option Sport I would say.

Bought my 03' with 7500 miles on it back in December of 2011. I paid $13,600.00 out the door for it. It was showroom clean. Today it sits with 33k on the odometer.
Buying a Jeep with such low miles has it's pros and cons. My front axle carrier bearings corroded from sitting so long without being moved(rear axle was replaced with a d44). Other then that major issue, it has run flawless.
