I also have a Currie heavy duty tie rod and drag link (not installed), best top safari doors, and a bestop bikini top.This Jeep is in pristine condition and has been properly built with high quality parts.

I have this up elsewhere for 35k obo (yes I know that's a bonkers price) just make me an offer if you're interested. I'm happy to answer any questions on it. I'm selling due to buying a house with my fiancee. This is a special jeep to me and I want to go to a good home, this is about as close as you might get to buying a LJ fresh off the lot. It's really a time capsule aside from suspension upgrades.

Don't mean to hijack the thread but the insulation on the inside of the hood, is that factory? I've never seen that before.

So I put this up on Wayalife and I'm just getting roasted. What's fair price for this guys? I wasn't sure how to price it honestly. I took a look at what was on the market, what other comps were going for and what I had in it and discounted that by quite a bit. I even had a guy who was committed at 32k and then backed out, which makes me think I'm not too far off?

I feel like i've seen other LJR's with super low miles like that in that ballpark before. It is a high price but its also a super rare combination...I would say anything around the 30k mark, it will sell its just a matter of time IMO.

You'll need to find that person that is looking for that specific model, in that specific color, that's willing to spend $30k plus for a Jeep that's already been built exactly the way they would have built it. Is that person out there? Probably, but how do you connect with them? If you have the time to wait then you might connect with that person. If you want to turn it into a down payment on your house then you'll have to let it go at a much lower price.

Most people are going to look at it and think, he wants higher then original sticker for a 14 year old vehicle. Regardless of miles, there are parts that degrade over time even if there aren't a lot of miles on it. Even though it does have very nice quality upgrades it's not worth the price to most people. Plus most people that want a jeep that can spend that much on one want to do the build themselves.

It's a beautiful Jeep! The person that ends up with it is going to really enjoy it. In a few years you're going to wish that you didn't sell it. By then you won't be able to get one like this back. If you love it you should keep it and find another way to get the money you need for the house. If possible, let go of some things that will be easier to replace down the road.

I've been scouring the USA coast to coast for the right Rubicon LJ for my next build and by far the highest prices I have seen are on eBay, believe it or not. IMO, eBay bidders would see the miles and eat it up.
