Mods tend to add little-to-nothing to the real value of a Wrangler.

Go to KBB, put in the miles and condition and see what they say.

@WaltA already covered it.

Mods aren't worth anything towards the value of the vehicle.

There's a very small chance he'd get half of what he projects those mods are worth, if he took them all off and sold them individually.

Just take a look at the buy/sell section. There's a $1100 bumper being sold for $250 right now.

Get the mileage and year of the Wrangler, run it through KBB or whatever your favorite random number generator is, and then go from there.

If you're willing to pay a $6,500 tax because this guy wants to buy a new toy to play with that's up to you.

are you asking what is axles are worth? the front is a top notch set up and the rear looks built up right for stock. I am sure he has $6500 into everything. Not sure it that is what you are asking.

@jadmt I think you’re correct, while confusing, I think the OP is referring to the axels and not the whole Jeep.
A good starting point/General rule of thumb, 50%, but I still wouldn’t pay that. Anyone who built up hard, probably used hard. If you know him, and consider his use and maintenance up to your standards, then feel free to pay more than you would a stranger.

Yea thats what i meant , just the axles front and back , with all the parts he has if it be worth it , i would counter offer 5k , but you also make a good point , if someone built it like that probably wheeled it hard

A friend bought a new JKU Rubi that the dealer had lifted w/tires & wheels. He bought it without paying extra for the add-ons.
