the jeep alone isn't worth that unless its absolutely in perfect shape and even then not really. That price is for all the other stuff and really in actual blue book value that price is way to high. but if you want it bad enough and if you have the cash then go for it but i would try to offer less before you just give them $6500. really what is the jeep worth to you!!?

AND make sure what kind of shape the jeep is really in!! RUST, KNOCKING ENGINE, BAD BALL JOINTS OR AXLES OR DRIVESHAFTS, NOISY TRANSMISSION. Test drive and you should have a good mechanic look at it or yourself(if you know what your doing)!!

some service records would help if they have any. carfax helps also


I bought a 1990 wrangler with 184k on it and spent $3000(talked them down from $4000) and at 187k the damn thing spun a rod bearing. the jeep didn't make any noise and inspected well before i bought it so i went for it. Oh well cause i wanted the 4.2 engine and the body and frame is in excellent shape and i can rebuild engines myself so i wasen't worried about it. But thats what i can do. CAN YOU? its a risk and to me 6500 is to much.


What do women and Jeeps have in common? The harder you ride them the more money it's going to cost you.

It all depends on your area, and what you think its worth as well; we can only offer guidelines of sort, and what we have seen/paid in the past.

I know of several in my local area that seem as nice as the one you list, yet the owners still own them at $6500. Depending on what you find out for maintenance and/or upgrades will help in determining the value, but I would think a jeep like you describe could be worth $4-$6k.

Make an offer if its the one youve been looking for, start low and see where it goes. Depending on how bad he wants to get rid of it he will negotiate at least some. That and make sure you have someone else look it over very good, preferably someone with Jeep experience or at least a good mechanic; someone you trust.
Gotta stand by all you cool guys... Maybe it'll rub off?!
