KBB estimates my JLUR 2018 at about 47k with 18k miles. That's nuts considering it sold this time last year for 34k

I'd like to say I've found a scenario where it makes sense to get rid of it, but there isn't one. Sure, I could strip the aftermarket mods, but I'd still play a loosing game at the end of the day with current prices.

I will sleep well knowing that, for the time being, if I need to get out of the payments; then I can probably do so easily.

I’m guessing you have taken great care of your Jeep too. So, your Jeep is a better value to you than any other Jeep on the lot…including the new ones. Keep it. Just my two cents…

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?
If someone offered me even $1k over what I was into my Jeep I’d be out so quick you’d think I was Usain Bolt

Indeed. My JL is in excellent condition. It’s got only 6,200 miles, and has been trouble-free. That’s more than most can say of their brand new Jeeps.

I also own a 2018 124 Spider Abarth with 9,400 miles.

That’s become my daily driver to the gym, to the grocery store and the occasional Sunday drive with the top down.

That’s the extent of my driving these days.

My co-worker was shopping for a Wrangler and came across a 2020 Sahara at Carmax that was listed for 38,000 the original sticker was 36,000 and the only add on was an aftermarket trailer hitch.

FWIW I work in the Semi Conductor OEM sector. There are major shortages of chips and semi comonents currently. I'm guessing this is part of what it disrupting prices

Im about to sell my Rubi to Vroom for $53,200. Paid $46,500 last February and put 10K on it. Got a new Rubi Ecodiesel sitting at the dealer waiting on me ( 3 weeks from order to delivery!!!!). Total out of pocket even paying full sales tax on new Jeep is $2000. I feel like thats a pretty good deal.

You think that's bad, look at this low optioned late model JKU, one owner only been in one accident selling for over MSRP.

2018 JKU for $33,495

Matching spare is extra :LOL:

Waiting for my JLR 2dr, but will be trading my 2016 Willys Wheeler with 43k miles on it for $24k. The dealer used KBB. I checked KBB last November and it was $21k back then. The trade in value increase was a definite push towards the new JL

I enjoy driving my Jeep more than any other vehicle, so I can't sell it.

But... who am I kidding? Even if I had a vehicle that would offer me the same enjoyment, I still wouldn't sell the Jeep. This weekend temperatures are in the 80's and I'll be on the trail.

On the supply side, definitely. On the demand side: repeated rounds of stimulus, low interest rates, lots of people sitting at home and on their wallets for a year, and people still not willing to travel internationally. That makes for a tight market. My Jeep sales guy says he is very busy / happy right now. That said, he does have a boatload of white hard-topped Islanders for those who need one.

Yup. You can also add to your list: with most of those employed now working from home, their household transportation have switched from needing an efficient commuter, to wanting a fancy weekend toy.
