Anyone Have A Recent Trade Value Assessment Done?

Hello,

On Friday, I am going to have a trade value estimate done on my Trailhawk. I am considering trading it in on a new JK Rubicon Hard Rock 6spd. If you have had one done, what did they say? KBB says I will be around $18,000. I looked on Autotrader and they are going for around $22,000. I have just shy of 57,000 miles on mine, original owner.

Thanks.

JW Speaker fog lights. Blue Ridge Overland Gear panels and bags. Pelican tool box loaded! Bubba Rope and Gators too. Much more....

Trailer: Custom built Montrose aluminum 4.5'Wx6'Lx3'H off-road utility with 3,500 lb Dexter torsion axle. Known as the Zombie Escape Trailer.

It's a poor resale market. Many lease returns.

High mileage always hurts resale but condition is everything.
I think KBB depending on condition rating and type of sale is your best bet for judging actual price you can get.price.
Anything in auto trader is negotiable I would guess, sold lower than asking.
KBB should reflect the recent trends in the market.
Good luck

I did a check on KBB and came up with about the same you did--it did have a middle trade in value of about $19,000. However, most dealers go by "black book" and I am sure IR Smart could probably give you a more accurate value. It also depends on what your trading for and the Rubicon doesn't come down from the MSRP very much. I also looked at Carmax for a vehicle similar to yours and found one close--50,000 miles, but didn't check out the equipment. I am going to attempt to leave the link here and not sure it will work: (Their asking price is $23599 and they usually will only give you about 5000 to 6000 less than their asking price on a similar vehicle--or sometimes less than that)

When I traded in to purchase my Jeep, the highest amount offered from 4 dealerships come from Carmax by about 20percent.

"Wha's a Jeep?"
"The Jeep's a magical dog and can disappear and things."
As his language is limited to the word "jeep,". He possesses high intelligence, so is able to help humans such as Popeye and Olive Oyl solve complex problems. He makes use of a limited form of teleportation: he can disappear from one place and reappear in another, and can walk through and on walls and ceilings. These teleportation powers are said to stem from the Jeep's ability to cross into the fourth dimension.

Nah, not anymore. When I first took it home and drove it around, I felt i needed the v6. The more I drove it around the more i love the car except for the power. I contemplated on buying the V6 with all the fixin' since I'm going to keep it a while but figured I could get a Husqvarna 701 for the price difference. so opted for the "more toys for the money option"
