need value on restored YJ

Owned CJ's and TJ's but never a YJ. I need a reasonable educated guess on the value of this YJ. Redone, no rust, manual trans. rebuilt engine. Everything professionally done. Thanks for the help.

Didn't Saharas have the 4.0l? Also depends on location, but around here (NM) it would go for $8-9k probably.

Interesting it would need a rebuild after only 88000 miles. In this area you're looking at probably $6000 +

The seat upholstery looks pretty cheap and poorly fitted. Cheap cover on the steering wheel too. The paint looks pretty good today but given the two items noted I'd worry about the prep under the paint. Might not br a bad gamble if the frame is solid but I'd start pretty low.

I know you live where it does not snow but are upper doors? full doors? hardtop included?
In Canada, an '89, you could buy it for $4K - $5K.

Lift the mats, see what the floors look like.
and the wipers look like they are sitting a bit low for a YJ.

Yeah must have done some serious damage to need a rebuild, that should be a strong motor. The 4.2 carburetor can be a headache. Better off looking for 4.o fuel injected. Thats what I did, I use to have a YJ with that motor. Don't get a 4banger.

Well first I don't think the seller you can say its restored.. as those colors and trim are not the sahara pkg cira 1989.. it is correct for later model years however. as noted its nice, but its the carb engine, and its just mostly a stock jeep(based on lack of info). price 5k-7k.. but again depends what it has.. could be more could be less.

I bought my '87 because it had a carb.

In Yellowknife, NT EFI did not understand 40 below zero. It would flood everytime if not plugged in and with EFI at 80plus psi that meant an oil change everytime. With a carb.... 5psi.... -60F? remove the air cleaner. dump some gas from the Bicks Pickles jar that stores beside the brake booster into the carb and turn the key. it fires every time. might have to do it twice but it never fails and it never floods.

Did that for 10 years in the NWT. Did that for 20 years in Alberta. Carbs are fantastic. AND carbs deliver way better, more tractable, more useable torque. Although the computer does let EFI adjust better to elevation changes.

course in Floridah who cares about elevation or -40.

Nothing wrong with a Weber.

Preach on bother. I have buddy's with 4.0's and. My XJ had a 4.2 my weber 38/38 YJ runs with them with no issues and has more power off idle. Sure it has 120hp but it's only 10ftlbs shy if I want more hp I'll throw in a nice cam and do a 4.0 head with offenhauser 4.2-4.0 intake and pick up 50hp and probably 30-40ftlbs

Yes, lift/torque off idle is far better with a carb than EFI. The published torque/horsepower are irrelevant in real world driving.
