I have $40,000 invested, and will consider any reasonable offer.

I did try Craigslist first, local at $28,000. No replies. Next tried Facebook Market place at $25,000, still nothing. The $40,000 invested is with zero labor. I don't want to give it away, but also understand that it needs the right owner. I'm closing in on retirement, and have a daughter getting married, so try I will...

Thing is, that 40k is gone in the wind. I really do not know what the going rate for late 90's wranglers is, but you probably can't expect more than maybe a 15 to 20% higher than the average price.

That is a sweet looking specimen you got there, hope it finds a good home for a decent price 👍

KBB top price is 15k for excellent condition with every option selected (upgrades not considered). I would say that is your starting point. Now add the upgrades $$$$ and what it is worth to that buyer.
10k in axles alone, correct?

might help sell it if you itemized the upgrades.

looks minty to me.

Its a shame that you think you have to sell it, I see it worth the 40, because whatever 90's or other year, that person will not be able to duplicate this. You are in a weird place, worth every dime of the 40k but really worth far more that the 28K easy. Craigslist usually don't have people looking there for this high end of an on and off road vehicle.

Have you considered submitting it to "Bring a Trailer"? It's an internet marketplace full of sweet special interest cars. I drool over there from time to time, but my impression is that your Jeep is an awesome candidate for that site. I think they are a "bit" choosy with the vehicles, but your's will most likely make the grade.

Good Luck with the sale. It's super nice.
