Go to the Kelly Blue Book site
IMO well worth the money,I bought a 98 Sport in good condition acording to the Kelly Blue Book it was worth about 8k,I bought it for 4k from a friend
my 98 was 5speed 4.0 d30/d35 axles soft top,half doors, 135k highway miles.The Sahara may have the D44 rear axle if your lucky

That sounds too good unless it is really rough...DO YOUR HOMEWORK before you give him your hard earned $!

thats a pretty damn good deal. and it might be just that or there might be some hidden mechanical issues with it. as was said before, just do some research and be careful

Smile Value?

I suggest going online with ebay or autotrader...Those figures indicate a more accurate current price range...Jeeps ususlly drop in price during the fall and winter seasons however, this year the demand even for soft-tops, has remained very high. Wholesale auction prices often exceed the "book value"
but dealers, both new car and used, will pay premiums for clean, honest vehicles.
Good Luck!

i bought my 98 with a hard top, bikini top, full doors and half doors, and 2 sets of coils.

the jeep had 98,000 miles on it and it is the 4.0L Sport

$3,800

i got smokin good deal on it.

if the jeep your looking at is a year newer and has twice the milage i wouldn't say its a steal but it is a fair price, esp if there is rust here and there. Don't just run out and buy it, look it over, bring it to a certified mechanic and see what they say about the drive line and such. dont be a knuckle head, look it through

good luck!
