Need advice, thinking about selling my yj, I've always wanted a tj

I have a nice 95 yj 2.5 L, with BFG all terrain tires including the spare, runs well, 120,000 miles on it. Everything works fine except two problems are the trunk door is dented in from getting rear ended and my fifth gear is messed up, wondering what would be a good price to sell it for . I post pics. Also it has brand new front brakes.

Sounds like a keeper to me. TJ's are just more complicated to work on ,and have more suspension parts to fail.

Yeah I have considered keeping it and painting it jeep green and making it perfect, I'm undecided at this point, just seeking options. I just like the look of the tj better, always had a thing for the round headlights an a newer one couldn't hurt at the right price

$2500 give or take. If you wait untill the spring when top down weather gets here you might be able to get a little more out of it.

Honestly you have a good platform to start on right there. If all you're after is the round eye look, you can convert it over. YJ's are so simple to work on it's crazy. Once you go to the TJ with the coils, it's a different can o' worms.

I would say that if you didn't get paid for the accident yet, you could easily get the trans fixed for free. And then just keep what you have.

With it sitting the way it is right now, I would estimate it at around 1800-2000, depending on how bad the tail gate is caved in. That usually causes more body damage than just the gate. Plus it needs a new rear window.
