|Jeeplover1||IMO the 4banger is the deal breaker. offer him 4000.00 or walk away IMO|
|03-28-2012 02:20 AM|
it just puts too much strain on an already weak component.

Was real excited about this one though, I know its looked down on in the forum but I'd love to buy one with all the major mods already done (lift, tires, aesthetic types) and my budgets only about 5k as it'll be a second car.
I'm going for the look and the fun crusing on the weekends. Don't plan on hitting the trails all to often.
Shoot me a message on here if you've got any leads on what I'm looking for.

|mikes05unlimited||If you are in the Myrtle area, which I am guessing from the name and location, Between Myrtle and Wilmington you could find what you are looking for. I live in Wilmington and pass at least 30 Jeeps on my way to work on the small lots. Keep looking they are all over the place around this area especially this time of year. Good Luck|

Really appreciate it.
How would I figure out if its a ford 8.8?
|03-27-2012 09:51 PM|
|KKhamesi||if ur rear axle breaks, which d35 and locker and 33s it will be soon, that 2k right there. plus its only a 4 banger. with a 3.5" lift, idk but i think thats a horrible idea. now this all IMO of course so u dont have to list to me.|

|DirtyMyrtle||Dude only wants 5200 though|

I would pass on the 2.5. I bet you can find a 4.0 out there in your price range. It's not that the 4cyl is bad but the 4.0 is soooo good. Good luck to you.
Again... just my take.
|03-27-2012 08:48 PM|
Haha I don't even know what that means..
What do you think the value is?
|03-27-2012 08:32 PM|
|Another Guy In A Jeep||Well if its not a dana 44 couldn't it be a ford 8.8? someone back me up here. lol|
|03-27-2012 08:31 PM|
|Jeeplover1||also make sure zippers are in good shape and no rips or leaks on the top if so knock off 500.|
|03-27-2012 08:30 PM|
|Jeeplover1||im saying 5000|
|03-27-2012 08:27 PM|
- What should my concerns be?
-What would you pay if it was you looking to buy?
Ps. I'm at the beach in SC so no plans to ever rock crawl with this or take in a bunch of mud. Just local trails and beach (sand) crushing in North Carolina.
- 4 cylinder
- AC/HEAT = Heat works, Needs AC compressor.
- Am/fm cassette
- ABS? = Not sure
- Hardtop? = No soft top
- General Condition? = Good condition
- How much tire tread left? = All terrain very good shape and tread
-Which axel in the rear? = Don't know what you want to know other than Lock Right Locker by Power Tracks
- Dana 35 or Dana 44?= I know it's not a 44
- What's the rust situation like? = Dime size spot on one door
- Do you know if it has a Slip Yoke Eliminator or does it use transfer case spacers? = Unknown
Cruise control? = No
Thanks y'all are really helping a newb out!

I just bought mine a few weeks ago but have been shopping for a year. If it has the 4.0 I would guess the dealers would ask $9499 for it. In a private party sale I would say $8599 and you could buy it for $7ish. Mine is a 99 setup similar to that one with a 3.5 lift etc(no winch) with 69k miles and he was asking $9500 and we settled on $8300. That is all here in SoCal and I know the market is strange here for Wranglers. I'm no expert and this is just my take on it. Good luck to you and my only bit of advice would be... make sure you start with a good example. I'm finding out that purchasing a jeep is just the beginning if you plan on building it to your liking.

When I get that info I'll post it back in here.
In the meantime all other posts/comments/estimates are welcome.

|Border Dave||LOL, Jeep guy3, I guess we were typing pretty much the same thing at the same time.|
|03-27-2012 12:27 AM|
It's very hard to put a price to it without those questions being answered, but if it has a 4.0 and it's in really good shape with the proper gearing for those tires, I'd guess it's value around $8000, maybe??? You'll get a better idea of it's value by looking on Auto Trader, E-bay, Craigslist, and your local newspaper. Car values really do vary from one area to another.
|03-27-2012 12:26 AM|
Rear axel wise a Dana 35 isn't recommended for 33" tires, ESPECIALLY with a locker, it just puts too much strain on an already weak component.
As far as a ballpark number, all that information changes it drastically, you'll go from 4-5k on a low end and 8-9k on a high end. That's in my area, each market is different.
|03-27-2012 12:17 AM|
I'm talking with the private owner now and am waiting for a response to those questions?
Why does it matter which axel in the rear?
I'm a major NEWB.
What would yalls ballpark # be for it based on this limited info?
|03-27-2012 12:15 AM|
|Jeep_guy3||^^^ all of this plus most importantly.... What's the rust situation look like?|
|03-27-2012 12:10 AM|
|Border Dave||Which motor, 4.0 or 2.5? Which axle in the rear, Dana 35 or Dana 44? Which locker does it have? What ratio are the gears? How does it run? Does it have a Slip Yoke Eliminator or does it use transfer case spacers? Does it have cruise control or air conditioning?|
|03-26-2012 11:47 PM|
