$100 at best if it's stock.

Pretty much a dime a dozen...

If someone wants the gears, brakes, I may be interested in the shafts.

I don't know about a dime a dozen. But between 100 and 150 would be my guess. A TJ is worth slightly more because of all the bracketry.

I would say 300 if it has new bearings, seals, hubs...

200 if it is used but in working condition

100 if it needs work.

and thats on the high side

This is a better estimate.

I've gone through a few and havn't paid more than $100, although they weren't perfect they were still driveable.

Considering the cost of unit bearings and gears these days, you can make a couple hundred dollars by parting it out to a person that wants the shafts, a person that wants the gears, somebody looking for replacement vac-disco parts, and a person that wants the bearings.

You also want to look in Completed Sales, not Parts For Sale.
