There was never a Dragon edition introduced until 2014 which is a JK and it is ugly as sin ! 10,500 is too much for a YJ I wouldnt pay over 5K for a YJ no matter how pristine it is

I paid $4500 for my 6cyl 1995 sahara with 70,000 original miles. That guy is asking way too much money for an "edition" that doesn't exist

For any of the YJ special editions, they don't add more value.. I would say if its a clean 1988 with low miles 3-5k.. depending what it has on it.. stock/modded etc...I frankly would look for a 91 or newer with fuel injection.. or for 10k move in to a nice TJ model.

Car?
Dragon?


Im sorry man, wrong forum, if you are looking for a JEEP YJ, please do some research, even checking Wikipedia for extreme basic information can help.

Jeep Wrangler - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

But if you are interested in a Dragon Car...
Well:

dragon car

PLEASE POST PICS of this Dragon Car! I am curious.

Yes it does, but it doesn't vary as far as $10,500. Which is what the OP said was the asking price.

And that price is a classic car price so the book just assumes that its in mint or near mint condition.

Absolutely No argument there. I'm a newb and there's No way in hell I'd pay that. Should be looking at early 2000's for that price.

Agree with 2xs, not a car, a Jeep, no Dragon edition unless some dealer put a sticker package on it. Pictures, need pictures.

Never seen a 10k YJ in my lifetime, But I would imagine if my YJ breathed fire and grew wings I would want 10K for it to!!! Did you by chance ask him if it was a "Magic Dragon"? Maybe the seller isn't all there
