It is not about what they are worth in ten years. All those aftermarket parts are now factory parts which means they automatically covered by insurance and factory warranty.Specialty Jeeps will be worth no more than regular Jeeps that are similarly equipped within ten years. Ask the guys with the Double Dragon edition Mazda MX6.
Did you show him the Trail Rated badge?The dealer I got my 2012 Rubi from has a MW3 and several Arctics on the lot, even a Arctic Liberty... I didn't know they even made those. I saw them on Tuesday while I got a free oil change. Took over an hour and got reprimanded by a service writer for offroading and scratching a control arm mount. "wherever you're going offroading... stop." Not sure the free oil change was worth the hassle.
The Arctic Liberty actually looked kinda cool, the headlight bezels were black instead of the normal chrome.
