How much to offer for parts?
I was talking to a friend of my sons father and he said he had a couple Jeeps for parts and I went and looked at them. We've known him about 5 years sons hang out all the time.
There is a 82&83 CJ7 pretty rough shape and he told me he had run an ad and only one guy came and looked at them but didn't want them. So he is going to try to sell the hard tops and doors and the good motor in the one but wants to get rid of the rest.
The 82 has the front dif with the right gears that I need for my buggy. The front end of the body is missing, Dash is stripped, the 6cly. motor has a knock, the T-5 is out and broke, and the tub might be salvagable for the low buck project and I could keep it all Jeep. Basicly its a rolling chasis with a set of stock rims, a tub, roll bar and motor
The 83 has the T-4 (rebuilt), T-case & driveshats that would easily replace the SR-4 behind my 151.
I told him I would be interested in the 82 the way it sits and the tranny, t-case, ect. out of the 83. I could use a lot of the stuff plus have some spare parts. He wants me to make him a offer and I have no idea what the stuff is worth. He wants to get rid of it and said he's not looking for top $ but wouldn't even give me a ball park figure. He knows I'm not working because of school and said to talk to my wife and make a offer. So what would be a fair price to offer that wouldn't be a insult?
