What do you think this POS is worth?

Curious what the educated, and un-educated, JKO folk think this POS is worth?

2008 JKU Rubicon, 110k miles
power windows/locks/stock Nav Radio

Front Dynatrac Prorock 44 w/ ARB, RCV's, Reid Knuckles, geared 5.38
Rear Rubicon 44 with stock locker, trussed, Ten Factory Chromo's geared 5.38
Ripp Gen 2 Supercharger w/ Intercooler
DiabloSport Trinity programer
AGR Rock Ram 1.5 X 8" ram, WTO rebuildt and tapped steering box, Derale 18" cooler
Rock Krawler's new Pro Tie Rod and Drag link w/ Heims
Synergy Weld-in cage
Tom Woods rear 1310 DS
Carolina Driveline front 1310 DS
Rock Krawler 3.5 X suspension, RK triple rate springs w/ Fox 2.0 shocks
Black Rock 17" D window aluminum wheels
37 x 12.50 MTR's
PSC BFH trail stinger front bumper
RockHard rear bumper w tire carrier
VKS weld on sliders
EVO rear corner armor
RockHard Oil pan, Transmission and TC skids
Warn M8000 w/ 85' synthetic line, Viking safety thimble
12 Volt Guy in-cab winch control
Hard Doors and BesTop Soft Doors
Stock 2012 soft top
Spidershades mesh top
Trek Armor seat covers w/ seat heaters
Tuffy underseat storage box
ORO rock lights
Rigid Dually Flood lights on bumper
Rigid Dually Driving lights on A pillar
ARB on board air
Daystar switch panel with Black Box relay/fuse box
EVO No Limits rubicon sway bar release

Not a show jeep, but in very good condition. Rides great on the road, wheels like a mofo. Small rip in the soft top, 1.5' or so, fixed with a patch. Skid plates are beat to crap. Sliders are scratched up but get painted back after every wheeling trip so they always look good.

What do you think this would sell for realistically?

Only what someone is willing to pay. Maybe it's just me, but it seems like there are a lot of Jeeps listed for sale right now that aren't moving. I was considering putting mine up for sale, but what I could get for it versus what it's really worth is insulting to my logical sense, so that won't be happening anytime soon. I punched your vehicle into KBB for my zip code using what you listed (Jeeps are very popular here for obvious reasons.) and private party in good condition placed your Jeep at 17,XXX good condition and 18,XXX in great condition with your current mileage. Part of the reason I withdrew my idiot idea to sell mine. I looked at Jeeps in my area with similar equipment, obviously much higher mileage, sitting on car lots for 22,000. My Jeep is a creampuff, 25k miles, in almost new condition, stock enough to make it a perfect vehicle for anyone looking to do their own thing with it. I won't let it go for 20k, fuck that, at this point i'd finish the meager amount I have left on the note and let it rot before I give it away to someone for a fraction of real value.

Diatribe aside, 18-21k would be likely, start going higher and you'll be waiting a long time to find the right buyer.

In my neck of the woods, people regularly pay 20k+ for an 08-10 bone stock JKU. I don't see why you would have a problem getting close to 25k.

If it ain't broke, fix it 'till it is.

Unfortunately you have a limited range of customers.... we all like jeeps but not necessarily your exact jeep. So now you're hoping that you find someone with the exact same taste and who thinks all your mods are worth what you think they are worth. I dealt with the same situation a few times before with different cars and the answer was always go back to stock and sell the mods separately. Too answer your question more directly i would kbb (or site of choice ) and list it for what the best price is... this way you can argue that the jeeps not in excellent condition but the extra mods make up for that... dont go higher than that on price no one will look at it or agree that the extras are worth more.. youll always take a hit on mods

Maybe sell off/trade off some of the parts. I mean really most craigslist folks probably won't know RIPP about a ProRock thingy. They just want it to look good. Selling the RIPP and the ProRock (cash and stock axle) I would imagine could get you substantial cash. Just my opinion. And you know as well as I do a dealer ain't gonna give a shit what your jeep has until they try to break one off in someone else's ass. why are you selling it?

Key words, bone stock. Modifications scare the average purchaser. Only other car guys will even consider his Jeep, the rest of the general population will see each thing he's done as a potential problem down the road.

I'm leaning towards this. You may give a buyer an option of like 23k with out the RIPP and the prorock, and give them an option of 30k for everything!

In my opinion, you may find the right person to get you over the $20k mark, at least what I see where I'm at. Mine is built about 65% of what yours is at 123k miles and I would be lucky to get $17k for it, which is roughly over 50% of what I have into it. I now know I just started with the wrong platform (some dumbass, newbie decisions on my part).
Around me, the $25k+ range and you're talking some nice buggies.
You have a nice Jeep, good luck if you decide to sell.

$28,000.00 Dawg but not below $25,000. That Jeep gives me a boner because it is so very well and intelligently put together.

POS as a term of endearment.

It is nicely built, did it all the way I wanted it and am very pleased with it. Not my DD but drives great on the road and off.

You know how it is...you see an LJ w a V8 and tons and you start to salivate a little.

I'd be interested in the RIPP if you decide to start parting.

if you're taking $20k for it, Madison and I will be right over.

There is a lot of ego and happiness building these toys, and a huge ego and wallet hit selling them.

Won't sell mine for $30 and yours has a lot more now stuff now.

Now... forget the LJ and think POSJK, LS3, Atlas, Tons, 42.....

I had a 2010 with about 50k miles on it with a pr44 in front on 37 pitbull's 3.5" RK and other various things but not as built as yours and got 25k on a trade in and kept my front bumper and winch which was more then I could have got locally. If the dealer things they can move it they might work with you.

Jeep had been calling me a least three times a month since the beginning of the year trying to get me to trade my 2012 JKU, lifted w/ 35's, in for a new Jeep because they have super low inventory for used 2012 and up Jeep Wranglers.
Finally gave in yesterday and traded for a New 2015 JKUR. They gave me a really great deal I could not refuse!
They said the used Jeep Wrangler market is BOOMING right now!
