Hello, new to the forum here.

I have a 94 FZJ80 that I'm looking to sell. The engine has +300k miles and would likely need a rebuild. I'm wondering what would be a reasonable price to sell it for? Or would it be better to rebuild the engine first and then sell it? If I was to rebuild, could I ask what would be a reasonable selling price? Any suggestions or advice would be greatly appreciated.

Hey mate,

Will need a lot more info including pictures…

Where are you located? What is the condition of the vehicle? What trim level? Is it currently running well or does the engine have issues?

Generally speaking, to get the best return try and clean the vehicle up as best you can so it presents well on first inspection, but most likely spending $4k+ on an engine rebuild would be lucky to even increase the sale price by $4k… so not worth doing in my opinion.

Problem is people can’t really trust whoever you get to do the work, so they would rather spend the money themselves and either do the work themselves, or get someone they trust to do it
