Need some help placing value on the Jeep

So after much thought, I have decided atleast for this week that the Jeep will be going up for sale. It sits in the garage and costs money to do so I.e. Insurance and with now having 3 little ones and 2 monstrous dogs we just don't get to use it so we've decided to sell it and try and find a travel trailer with our profits that will suit our needs better than our 8 foot pop-up. The problem that I'm having is sights like place the value much higher than I expected so I figured I'd ask you guys and girls what's it worth? Here are the specs:
-97 Wrangler SE
-4cyl 5 speed w/ 4.0 tb
-84000 miles
-4 inches of lift
-32x11.5x15 Goodyear MT/R's with 90% left
-two pc hard top with sunroof and rear defrost and upper half doors
-working a/c
-soft top is junk but I have all the hardware to go with so the new owner can just buy a cheapy replacment top
-there is a tear in the drivers front seat at the seam, there is some very minor unintended body modification but nothing major.
-flush mounted rear l.e.d.'S
-8000lbs winch
-chromoly tie-rod

Almost everything works except for the defrost ventbut I hope to have this fixed with a new actuator prior to sale.
So I know value is a difficult thing to judge but any help would be appreciated.

Please send check or money order for my bigger engine, drivetrain, axle, and tire foundation directly to me

do you have any body pictures? sounds to me like someone would pay around $8000 for it if you found the right person, if the body looks decent... i had a 97 tj sahara with no lift and a very beat up body, with a winch and swamper tsls for around 7 grand, you can always find someone willing to pay the amount you want

More or less stock except for tires and winch, but with a 4 banger. Around here you would get 5-6 grand if the body is in nice shape.


I will start using Metric only when the duodecimal system is adopted!!
