i looked mine up and in excellent condition, a 93 jgc with the straight 6 and all options, is worth about half that. Offer him 3K, or tell him no deal. Tell him he can look it up himself. Jeeps are good if you know how to work on them. The only hard part is trouble shooting. I have kids as well and i understand where youre coming from. When i was driving mine, (93 jgc laredo 4.0), i was going about 60mph, and it started choking and sputtering. then it died. it sat for about 3 months. I put about $400 worth of parts into it, then my mechanic came back from out of town, only to find out (impossibly), the timing was off over 180 degrees. That was a simple fix. But i would say the 93 jgc with the straight 6 is a good car. I bought mine for $800, tag price, and out the door was $1100 and it had 175,000 miles on it. the condition it was in wasnt worth 1100, but i had 3 kids i needed the room for. after i put work into it, the condition its in now is worth about 2500, but to FINALLY answer your question, (im a chevy man myself) but yes, the 93 jgc is a great car, depending on the price, and if you have someone mechanically inclined look at it, is up to you. To give you an exact kbb price, it's only worth $3,730....

Kelley is asking price so that may be too high. And it's hard for me to consider any car that age to be in "excellent" or "outstanding" condition.
TMV for my zip code puts the value way under your number. Dealer retail (without options) is around $1,400 for one in "clean" condition. You can appraise it yourself at that link.
Of course, we're replying to a 9 year old post, so that number may have been spot on at the time. The OP may have gone through three Jeeps by now.

The difficult part of GC fron brakes is removing the cast iron caliper housing mounting bolts (2) in order to be able to remove the rotor. The bolds are usually torques down tight and I recommend the correct size 6 pt. impact socklet and a breaker bar to remove and install these to proper torque.
#2485 of 2515 2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee -- Problem with Heater
Dec 09, 2011 (5:56 pm)
My 2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee recently started having problems with the heat. It spits out hot air - perfectly - on the driver's side.
The passenger side, however, blows cold air. Very cold air.
I took it to my mechanic, but he wanted to charge me a lot to take the dash apart and investigate.
Has anyone ever had this experience? If so, appreciate input on the cause of the problem and ballpark repair costs.

There is a blend issue with your electric doors in the vent assembly. there is a techical bulletin about this issue. I had ours fixed recently. The whole dash has to come out and vent housing gets cut and doors get repaired.
