Im trying to sale it as is, but i understand itll take a very specific buyer who will have to like all the mods i did. Its currently listed with a broker that specializes mostly in custom vehicles. Ive had a few inquiries and one person said they want to see it tomorrow.

Personally, feel that the actual jeep has NEVER been abused off road and is in a desirable, very well taken care of condition. That would be a "high retail KBB price" for the jeep. Take all your upgrades, add them all up to the last $$, add 75% of that to your jeep's worth and start there. I would be very happy getting Hi-KBB + 50-60% of the upgrades for the Jeep. If you start asking 75%, you have a little haggle room.

I personally can't afford another project, PLUS mom and I are extremely happy with our Jeeps. BUT, I do have a very close friend that MIGHT be in the market for a newer, more modern, JK 4 door, that is "knock dead gorgeous, completely finished JKU (if there is such a thing)!" I will send him this link and see what he thinks. He is in a much more prestigious position in life and his 2004 TJ Rubicon (original owner) does not be-fit his current position. His TJ is just 'average!' THIS JEEP IS AWESOME!!!!

The kbb is 35,000 and the upgrades where around 25,000-30,000 total. Have it with a broker and he advertising it on instagram, facebook etc. heres pic of the advertisement. Buyer gets jeep, custom made hog wild chairs, big 4 hog wild sign to use at shows, hog wild door props, hog wild hood props and canvas prints for show use. Kinda cool thing is have had some ppl interested in it in last few days.

How are Justin, Been a while since last check-in and have to say your added tweaks are looking good. As for the vicowl, I'm sure you will do a better job with yours than the one on the red Jeep. On that Jeep it looks like a theme all its own and distracts from the whole.


Yeah I can understand putting it up for sale and beginning a new project. Best of luck on a sale. Heck I've blown that much on vices that had no return on investment. Live while your alive and sleep when your dead!

Hello,

I had some interest in the Jeep but no serious cash offers so figured it best to keep it abx further work on it. To be honest I wasnt really that enthused about the prospect of selling it as would hate to see it go honestly.

You'd think some athlete or movie star would gobble it up... Reach out to Jay Leno! Or Hollywood for a movie... maybe you need a broker... someone with connections

The reality is total all the parts costs of the mods not including labor and they are worth around 20% of that tops. So $20K in parts adds about $4K to the sale price vs. a bone stock vehicle. There are exceptions like a top tier axle (e.g. Dynatrac). The only way to get more is to part it out. Parted out stuff up to 50 cents on the dollar.

Gotta pay-to-play baby!

Thinking someone will see it "for its true worth" is short sided. You are far better off stripping it down to bare bones and off'ing it piece by piece. Its your vision. Not someone elses vision.

From selling it to spending more money on it in just a couple of days! I love your attitude!

At this point it's already a niche vehicle, might as well go all the way and finish it the way you want.

You guys are being too hard on the guy. As long as the kids aren't starving and the house is not being foreclosed on, all is OK.

Justin, Looking fantastic, ya done good!


How about taking that rascal out to some gnarly looking terrain for a photo shoot?


Another thought. To match the existing exposed fastener theme, go up the pillars with about four more button heads. For the benefit of the judges, use sex bolts so it looks good on the inside too.
