I am in the process of buyiing a new house and paying some bills off. I am really kicking around selling the Jeep. I only drive it for fun on the weekends and such as I have a company car. I just looked the blue back value up online via KBB. I was surprised to see the KBB value listed now is higher then it was when I bought it 2 years ago. Has the used car market changed that much or is the online KBB a lot different then the data the bank uses? When I bought it in Nov of 2009 the high value was like 8400.00, good value was around 8,000, and poor condition value was 7,000 something (dont remember exactly. The trade in value at the time was like 5500.00. Today the KBB shows the value at top value at $9200, good value at $8900, good $8700 and poor condition $8000.00.
The jeep is a 1999 SE automatic with the 2.5. It only has 80,000 miles on it and it has new (less then 1500 miles) Goodyear 265 75 15's on it. It is black with a soft top that is in good condition. The only modification it has an aftermarket stereo and soundbar but nothing fancy. The body and drive train is bon stock, un-molested. The only issue with the interior is that some of the carpet is warn behind the rear seat. Also has black neoprene seat covers. All new brake lines, no rust or body damage. For those of you have have been buying and selling lately would could I honestly expect to ask/get for the jeep. Here is a picture from when I bought it, the wheels and tires are now different. It now has the 15 inch Canyon look a like wheels that came on the Jeep Grand Cherokee's. The flares have been painted black since these pictures.
