I'm sorry to burst your bubble but the street value of a 5.9 , let alone one with that kind of mileage, is NOT 5500. Book value is horribly inaccurate on these things.

Re: Just bought a 1998 ZJ 5.9!

Every state is different. Duno why but it is. Around here a clean zj 4.0 with 150K is worth $2000 doesnt even have to have leather. Hell i just sold my 96 zj 4.0 laredo with 151k a damaged hood paint was just ok interior was clean no leather got $2200 for it and an extra $200 cause i left the stereo in it. In my area $3000 for this jeep is a great find. If you go on ebay and look them up you will see the same. Yes 167K is high but after doing some homework i have found them over 300K and still running strong. That goes for every jeep reguardless of the engine.

Hey Chris, if your Niner is worth 10k, then my lifted WJ might be appreciating in value!

It's a WJ, not a WK. What exactly are you getting at?

Re: Just bought a 1998 ZJ 5.9!

Hey your so quick to bash high mileage ZJ's so c'mon tell us more about yours. My 95 XJ with 173K runs like a top. My 96 ZJ i just sold with 151K ran like a top. AH and this 98 ZJ with 167K seems to run like a top as well! Of course i wont know for a few weeks since i just bought it. Dont get shy with us now

There was no bashing. I said you had balls for buying a high mileage vehicle for DD use. I also noted that the "book" (I'm guessing KBB) is grossly inaccurate for Jeeps in general, especially since gas went upwards of 2$/gal. A quick scan on Ebay showed no ZJ above 42XX.00 (a 98 5.2 with 113k and zero bids), let alone 5500. I also never said 3k for your purchase wasn't a good deal (Bubbadog said that instead), but I would not believe for a second that someone would have picked up yours for nearly double the price, in spite of all the receipts for service, etc.

The sig is largely a joke. QBNKID can vouch for me, I commuted 160 miles a day, 5-6 days a week for 6 months out of the year since '07. I've also completed multiple trips from NJ to FL and back. I have 114,000 and change.
