    Default Would you do it?

    Had a guy approach me this morning, offered to buy my Jeep for 30K outright. I figure I have a ton into this, but I could take the 30K and start with a newer Jeep. I have a '97 presently, and everything is pretty much new within the last year. Thoughts, opinions? Pics of my Jeep are on the forum.

    How much do you have invested into it? Are you willing to start over?

    Let's see, wife bought it for me for 6K, probably an additional 15-18k invested. If I had to do it again the second time, knowing what I know now, I could probably do more for less money total. Would set up most of a new Jeep the same, and should have some $$ left over.

    Sell it. I've had about 9 or 10 vehicles in the last 7 years. I'd sell anyone of them for the right price when I had them.

    Go for it! Building a rig is part of the fun!

    For the right price (30K would do it!) I'd even sell my CJ!
