Kelly Blue Book says my 2018 Sahara with every major option on it and only 6,200 miles is worth $45,000 to a dealer. I paid $38,000 four months before the pandemic hit.

I added about $3,500 in Katzkin leather seats and a Mopar lift.

I barely drive it. I am tempted to get the cash and run. Perhaps wait a few months for the market to cool off and see what else to get.

I still have the OE wheels and front bumper. I may swap the Quadratec wheels and steel bumper and sell them separately. I never got around to installing the winch.

Thoughts?
How much for the winch if your selling it??? ✋

Call a CarMAX. KBB values are pure fantasy and have nothing to do with the actual Manheim auction data auto dealers really use.

I put over $20,000 into my 2021 Wrangler customizing it and I'm absolutely loving it but I also am thinking about trading it in because I feel that I could get one he'll of a trade in on it and I want the 392. My Wrangler Unlimited is only 5 months old with 5,000 miles and I ordered it with every option. Only thing bothering me is giving up the 6 speed manual

One good thing about it is I drove off the lot with it paid for so there is no 2-5 year loan involved

This thread got me curious on the vroom pricing but I have no intention to sell. Just in case people are interested my 2 door rubicon with 1700 miles on it came back with a price of $43000. That is more than I paid for it before tax.

Like I said before: KBB has been spot-on in my area.

Besides, based on everyone’s experience on here, I wouldn’t waste my time with Carmax; Vroom is the one paying the most.

I was offered 41.5 for my 21 2 door manual rubicon. That’s more than I paid including all dealer fees and sales tax. Crazy

That's pretty cool; KBB trade-in value - 10% is usually the most accurate, with CarMAX values being #2.

If Vroom is overpaying, more power to you to take advantage before their business model collapses and/or the impact of the class action lawsuit kicks in.

I got a quote for my Jeep because I was curious. I have about 2,500 miles. only options are mud tires and color. They offered $39,442 and I paid $37500.

EDIT: Before taxes, MSRP is somewhere between $40 and 41.

Manheim and KBB are owned by the same company. If you get a KBB Instant Cash Offer, that price is guaranteed.

It's not guaranteed, unless things have changed in recent years. The offer is there to get you into the dealership, but they are free to offer what ever they want from there. So it's reeler dealer dependent on the experience you will receive.

You are right, but I have used it several times and always got more than the KBB price. I take good care of my cars (I really enjoy detailing and do my own clay, buffing/polishing, and pro ceramic coatings) and most dealers know they can put it on the lot the same day with little to no work on their end.

The KBB trade-in price/range isn't guaranteed. An Instant Cash Offer is an offer to buy your vehicle but it is dependent on the dealer agreeing with how you answered the questionnaire. So you are right in the sense that your experience can be dealer dependent. If a dealer is being unfair, you can try a different participating dealer and complain to KBB. If a dealer doesn't want the vehicle at that price, they can sell it to KBB for the amount they paid. So a good dealer wouldn't bother unfairly beating you up on how the questionnaire was answered, but look at you as an opportunity to sell you one of their vehicles now or in the future.

From FAQ:
"Participating Dealers are required to honor your Instant Cash Offer, provided the information and condition you provided when creating your Offer are confirmed to be accurate by the Participating Dealer. If the information is not correct, the Participating Dealer can update the information using the same online tool you used to generate the Instant Cash Offer for your car, and the update may result in a modified Offer amount. "

While I have no interest in selling my Jeep, I finally took a few minutes and checked out KBB. Wow, there is something going on there. I have a MOAB which according to a few sources including KBB is the highest priced model. (See attached KBB photo). But I didn’t expect the private party value to be so high. I know Jeep Wranglers hold their value better than most vehicles but this was an eye opener if it’s even close. According to KBB my 2019 MOAB with 8k miles is hovering around 56k. That is insane. The last time I had a vehicle gain value, it was a Ferrari I owned, which doubled in value in 5 years of ownership. While the Jeep is no Ferrari, it isn’t doing bad for what is considered a depreciating asset.
