I'd say it is worth 2,900 or so
It would be worth quite a bit more if you get the brakes and the wiring problem fixed.

78 CJ7
Spring over 33's
4.3L V6, TH350

its worth $50. Email me with your address and i will be by promptly to free you from it. (smile)

Seriously...depending on where you are...i'd guess anywhere from $1000-$3000....but then again, its worth whatver someone is willing to pay for it. Theres a sucker born every minute....find one of them and get $10,000 for it!

good luck,
mike

Give me Jeep or Give me Death!!!

I'd say 2,000-2,500 for an asking price.

Jeepngreg -

You'll take a big hit on the price because of the wiring problem. I recently sold a similar sounding jeep in New Hampshire for $3,700. Was an 85 with ~70k miles, Howell TBI, 4" Superlift, 33" TSL, T5/D300, Narrow Track D44/D30, 3.73 gears and Detroit EZ-Lockers, rear disc's, full cage. Body was a little rough on the rockers and corners..

You invested some $$ into this already. You've got to make a choice: more $$ and get the wiring resolved (if you can't figure it out) or sell it and take the hit on what you've invested (always do on this kind of rig when you sell...) and start over.

Have you used the schematic and traced through the starting circuit with a test light? Any possibility that the ignition switch on the column (its up under the dash) has a dead spot in the starting position?

Good luck - Jim

its a brand new ignition switch from napa. so it shouldnt be dead.....i traced the wiring in the eng. compartment and it was OK, i dont have the wiring diagram for under that dash, but thats my next step....and it that fails...i'll jimmy-rig it
