Good thing you aren't looking for one if $5k is your top price.

CJ's vary in price based on condition, modifications and region of the US. The V6 to me in a good upgrade....assuming it was done correctly but in general most people want the drivetrain stock. The flashy accesories don't do much for me but are expensive and add up quick. There is no doubt the owner probably has what he is asking in the jeep...but that doesn't mean its worth that either.
Rust is a big concern on cj's and pretty much all have or had it. How it was repaired is important.
I would expect the owner to sell the jeep for less than he is asking. Typically 10-15% less is normal...so in that $7500 to $8000 range. In that range if it drove, stop, started well and looked good aint a bad price. You cant build one for anywhere near that. But you wouldn't make money if you resold either.
Maybe that helps.
