Default Feeler thread... is this price reasonable?

Not sure, but I'm posting this for a friend.

He's looking to sell a 2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee Overland. The thing is absolutely MINT and he has a pair of 3 ring binders with every maintenance record, oil change, service, etc from Day 1. He's an engineer, keeps his stuff obsessively clean/maintained... you know the type.

It has 185k miles on it.

The Jeep is loaded, every possible option, 4.7 V8, etc...

He is looking for $7000 for it. Any interest? He's buying a new car next week and the dealer is offering him $5500 on trade and he thinks that's low (of course, it's the dealership).

I will have pictures of it by Monday.

Is it for sale or just a feeler? If he has a chance to trade it
In and get money now take it. That's high miles but also average for the year I've been seeing. Around he will have every broke dick kicking its tires with no money.

I'd vote for trade in

185K or miles? I think $7k is too high. I'd take what the dealer is offering. The vehicle is 8 years old with almost 200k on the ticker.

I don't think he is asking to much. That seems pretty fair to me.
