Wiw 97 tj

Hey guys i have a 1997 Jeep TJ SE and im curious on what its worth. Its the 2.5L 5 speed and im the second owner. It has 97,000 original miles on it with ice cold a/c and a new water pump, and radiatior. I bought it bone stock and only have added a brand new Kenwood top of the line head unit, its the best you can get until you go touch screen and new 5.25" Pioneer dash speakers. I have also added a Brand new Bestop Replace a top with tinted windows and it has the sliding glass half doors. I then added Brand new Mickey Thompson Sidebiters and Goodyear Wrangler Authority 31x10.50/15s. The Interior i would rate a 8.5 only because it had the carpet taken out and theres the typical driver side seat tear. Other than that its great. The body i would rate a 9 its white with no body damage and only one little scratch. Its never been in the mud and oil has been changed every 3k miles with mobile one since it was new. I recently took it to a mechanic and he ran a full diagnoostic test and it passed them all and didnt throw a single code. I cant add pics at the moment but it looks just like it would have new besides the new wheels. Thanks!

Think we can make it...

Might as well keep the stereo for your next jeep if you sell it and put in the old one, It doesn't add any more value

I have a 97 SE for sale, 118K stock, stick, half doors, soft top, stock radio, top not great and tires half gone, driver fender good, rot on top of the passenger. Can't get anyone to give $4k for it. Private offers have been $3000-3500 Yep, take the radio out it will not help you sell. Good luck with selling it.

I honestly think even if you have new tires and rims you don't get your money back for them, I would just put the originals back on, and keep any aftermarket stuff for your next ride, and if your next ride is not a jeep I think you're just loosing a ton of money and it's not worth it. But that's how I think things work I could be completely wrong.
