Default Blue book value?

Is it normal for Wranglers to sell for more than KKB value? Especially in this economy? Thanks I have been looking at purchasing my first Jeep for a toy and was suprised at some of the asking prices

Depends on the price range. I have noticed that in the 1,000-4,000 price range the condition is pretty similar. Just depends on if you get lucky or not.

In the 5-10k range there are some good deals out there.

Above 10k blue book seems pretty accurate.

Were there mods?
They usually dont add too much value, but some people try and charge for them.

Post up some info here, and people can fill you in.

It is not normal for them to SELL over KBB value..

However, it is VERY common for the asking price to be over KBB.

Ask Kennedy:tonka:

There's a YJ here in Lansing at the corner of 96ish and 99. It's red with a little rust on the body, Pretty solid frame, but the 4x4 shifter is broke off and there is no back seat. Not to mention the stench of Strong tobacco. Soft top. It has 162,000 ish Miles. I went in and asked because the guy took 3 weeks to put a price on it (after I asked) and He said "eh.....5900". Basically, Pulled it out of his butt and knew I was looking for one. So yeah, I think they tend to go for a bit higher then they should simply because they are Unique. Or people think they are.

I think there are a lot of good deals out there, unless you want a used JK. I tried to sell my tj with over 20k into it and wanted less than 9k, I ended up putting it back in the garadge, the economy is pretty bad and it is a buyers market, the TJ rubis still bring some money but you can find good stock TJs all day cheap.

Mine is forsale.
There is a big difference between KBB and NADA.

I looked on Autotrader.com 100 mile radius or 200 miles, and limited it to the model year.
I priced mine lower than the average.
