Default 97 Jeep Wrangler TJ - $7000 - SOLD on ebay for $7050

1997 TJ. I'm updating my asking price: I am at the point of just wanting this gone. I have the replacement sitting in the driveway and I want to wrench on it but promised my wife that I wouldn't until the Jeep was gone. After it's complete I might be a little more sticky, but if you don't mind minor wrenching, this is a steel.

$8000 after I finish all the loose ends
$7000 OBO as-is - see the end of this post for the things that need to be finished. I will begin finishing this project next weekend so if you like to tinker, please let me know soon.

This TJ has:
  • 5.3l GMC engine roughly 101k
  • 4l60e automatic tranny
  • NP241c t-case
  • D44 LP front axle with lockouts, disk brakes, limited slip, and 4.88 gears (stretched 3" forward)
  • Ford 9" with disk brakes, 4.88 gears
  • Radius arms front and rear
  • 33x12.50 tires
  • B&M ratchet shifter
  • Factory light bar over windshield
  • spice soft top
  • Sahara interior
  • Sahara flares
  • dual Flowmaster 40s, not imitation

The list of things that are not complete is:
  • Electric fan switch needs to be mounted inside the cab (should be done this weekend)
  • T-case shifter needs to be positioned permanently(should be done this weekend)
  • T-case shifter boot needs to be installed(should be done this weekend)
  • Door panels and handles need to be installed (I ran it with no doors most of the time)
  • Rear bumper needs to be re-painted
  • Shift position indicator needs to be hooked up (it shifts, but the little orange line doesn't move to show you what gear you're in)


It's a long list, but most of the things are pretty small and could be done in a single day. That's what I'll try to do next weekend if all goes as-planned. This set-up did experience what I think is a fuel delivery problem the last two times I had it at Silver Lake. I will also have that looked at, but it'll be early next week and it counts toward the "finished" price. I'm assuming that it's a fuel pump issue since it's the stock Jeep pump, but it could be as simple as a signal from the Jeep computer not getting a good signal from some sensor that it used to control.

You answered my question, thanks. What would a decent price for this then? I just went by what I've been seeing and the only thing comparable on this board recently is the 2000 with a stroked 6 cyl.

Very fair - don't know how many miles before the transformation but looks clean in the pics - then add a sweet motor/trans combo and some beefier axles, yeah - you're good dude.

With hard top and full doors with those upgrades price is right. You will get your price if you are not in a hurry.

I sold the hard top, but still have the full and half doors. I'm going to look at a Bronco tomorrow so this price may become a quick sale price soon.

Thanks a lot for the feedback and the compliments. The axles turned out nice and the rear disk brakes made a huge difference.

I'm slow at times, by chance would the reason you installed a new motor/trans be from your avatar pic? In which case "testing the waters" becomes terribly funny to me.

LOL - that would be funny, but no, it isn't related. My avatar pic was taken 9 months and 12,000 miles or so before I even considered an upgrade. I actually overheated it the following winter (or late fall) when the clutch fan lost all engagement and stopped spinning. The head was warped badly after that so the choice was "install the supercharger" or "add a couple of cylinders". I made the right choice.

No disrespect, but I still think the price is high. It's a 3 yr old jeep with a motor swap that nets you about $1000 more than a 6 cyl would.

If it were super super clean then maybe I'd say ok, but it looks used. Nice, but used. I'm thinking 6 or so would be about what it would be worth.

I'm working on completing it now and I will be reducing the price because I've already bought the replacement Bronco.

I am not interested in trades, thank you though.

Thanks also for the sound reasoning behind price suggestions. It is used, nice, but used. I didn't build it for the trailer and I didn't drive it like I had an egg under my foot (soft right foot). It is solid though, and it is pretty impressive in the sand an on the street.

At this point, I want it gone. I have the Bronco now and just really want to be able to work on it. I promised my wife that I wouldn't until the Jeep was gone.

It would be a decent drive, but I might try and come take a look at this thing this weekend.
