Question What's one like THIS worth?

2007 JKX; auto; ~28K miles; lift/new rims/tires/rack. Really like the looks of this one...except the color....HAR!!!






I'm actually looking for the 4 dr unlimited but THIS one is looking pretty good.

Owner isn't sure but "might" decide to sell this week.

What would the Forum members here consider a 'decent' deal...cash in fist.

Well mine is 2007 sahara, completly stock.. Bought it this last june... 8300 miles,,, it was on the lot for 28, but i got them down to 24k, and was able to get them to switch the rims n tires off a rubicon.... ... Assuming your not paying for the rims n other mods, you should be in the 18-21k range...
Although i have a soft top,, the hard top is usually a bit more, plus, mine is a sahara, maby that will counter the cost of the hard top...

I purchased a 2007 Sahara six-speed with 20,500 miles a year ago for $22K. It is a CPO Jeep from a Jeep Dealer. It is a 2-door with both tops, tow package (4.10 gears), 18"s, sat radio. Just a data point for you.

What diameter are the wheels?
If they're 18s I'd make a pained-looking face at the owner and say, "yeah, they'll have to go when the tires wear out".

Those are good tires, my favorites, in fact. But they look like 33s on 18s.... ....I'd much rather have 33s on 16s.

The rack is a decent one.
Do you need a rack? Is it worth more money to you? You can only put very light things up there unless you want to roll laterally on the trail.

What kind of lift?
A fully kitted Rock Krawler or OME would be worth substantially more than a pukey little Daystar BB or something.

The mods to this Jeep are light and mostly superficial. Without a little more detail we can't tell you if they add value.

good points. I'll be asking such should the owner & I get back together.

I'm not a fan of big holes in low profile rubber for this kind of rig either.

Looks almost like my jeep




Mine has 35's. that one looks like 33's. those are 18 in rims because that is the smallest you can get in rockstars. And 18in rims look better on 35's imo.
I paid 16,000 for my jeep stock with 45k miles. Wheels, Tires, and lift costed me about 4 grand.

That jeep is going to sell for 20,000 easy. I just bought a 2007 jk with about 20,000 more miles and none of the upgrades for 18,000.

I'd add that anything less than a 35 on an 18 renders it MUCH less effective offroad. 35 is the minimum (IMHO) tire size for an 18 if you intend to wheel it.

How does one tell whether a particular lift will be right for 33/35?

I'm not crazy about the rims but like the tread. Oregon is the land o'mud, but I don't anticipate needing heavy mudders for my use.

And I'm waiting for the owner to call for follow-up information.

Ask them what the heck is under there and tell us.
If they have no idea, look at the shocks, tell us what they are.
Look on top of the springs and see if there are pucks.
Look at the rear trackbar and see if there's any sort of modifying bracket; is it welded/gusseted, bolted?
Look at the front control arms; stock or aftermarket?
Same for swaybar links at both ends.
Take a tape measure and give us the distance from dead-center of the headlight to the ground; we can tell you how much lift there is but can't tell you the nitty-gritties of it. Unless you throw in a bunch of photos...

If the history isn't written down and stuffed in the glovebox (what I'd do for a new owner if I traded at a dealer) or the old owner can't give you details, I'd move on, personally.
