Best way to sell JK?

Postby Firewire » Sun Apr 08, 2012 3:17 pm

My wife's job is putting to many miles on her JK, so she's decided to sell (can't afford to keep this and a fuel miser). What is the best compromise of selling vs trading? Do any specific OKC dealers give more for Jeeps? :|

Sell it out right. You won't have it two weeks if it is well maintained.

Sounds like I should run an auction! lol

It's so frustrating to see Black Book, Blue Book, Edmunds, Trucar, etc... all give a range, and in the past the dealers give you the lowest end of that range.

I am convinced dealers will not buy a trade unless they can get $3-$4k out of it. I do't think there is a such thing as trade value anymore. It's wholesale value. They want to be able to buy it so low that if it doesn't sell they send it to auction and they are out nothing.

Thanks for the advice guys, I put it up on Autotrader and will be giving it the the ol' auto trader try.

Cool, good idea! Got it there now as well.

I'll just have to filter out the people in countries 3,465 miles away who are kings of their country, but are banished and on a cruise in Fiji while their secretary in Wisconsin can finish up the sale while giving me an extra $1000 for my troubles. :lol:
