Soon to be a former Jeep owner (hopefully temporarily)

Howdy from Chicago. I've come to this forum frequently for info but I'm just now registering for the first time.

Unfortunately, my wife and I are trying to sell our '98 TJ. Had it parked on the street in front of our house and somebody crashed into it at 4:30 in the morning (I suspect drunk owner of other car, but they did report it stolen). The driver got away on foot as their car was not driveable (score one for the TJ).

I'll post some details in the TJ forum, I'd love to get some thoughts on potential value of the car.

Thanks,
Tim

Sorry to hear that sucks. Some of us have had our jeeps stolen others wrecked and there's nothing like the feeling of saddling back up. Post pics we'll be happy to appraise and get you back on some trails asap!

Welcome and sorry about the mishap. It does not look that bad from the pictures so why do you have to sell it? Now is a good time to do some upgrades. What better reason than now to spend some money on it?

530 ktm: unfortunately we don't have the skills or the finances for a project car and we'd rather sell it to someone who does.
