RRC price suggestions...

After 6 years of owning a 92 RRC i finally ran out of patience. I cant afford to keep a vehicle that requires that kind of maintenance and expensive parts. I just replaced a T-Case, rebuilt a rear diff and still has a vibration between 20 and 35 MPH. I would like to know what these things are going for these days. Body is OK, interior is OK as well, engine runs smooth...when it feels like it, tranny shifts fine and T-Case works as it should. Rusty floor boards have been repaired as well as the bottom of the B pillars. Currently has 143,000 miles, OME 3" lift 265 mud tires and a few more upgrades. The roof rack and lights will be removed before sale, but i would include a small parts store i accumulated thru the years. I know the book value is around $1,500...i would like to know if there is a market for these kind of cars, and what a ball park figure would be...




Thank you for your time.

Rust content is key to value. The more, the less. Without seeing, driving your particular truck I can't say. However, a rust free version is always going to bring top dollar all things considered. Yours looks to be in the 2500-3500 range if I were to throw a guess out there. Maybe a few hundred more if it comes with an inspection certificate.

Have you narrowed down whether the vibe is front of rear drive shaft related?

Rear. I removed the rear shaft and vibe goes away. I had a hard time replacing bearings on the diff, so im not confident i did it right...The rear shaft was hit, so it may be out of balance...

Oh no...Im passed that, its not just the vibration, its the lack of reliability, the high maintenance, the expensive parts...It looks awesome, but i need a capable vehicle that can drive 200+ miles and perform reliably on the interstate.

I just finished a marathon of looking for a RRC and have to say it will come down to rust. Then quality of rust repair if thee buyer gets to that point. Any other issues will then reduce value but most know going into these sales that work & $$$ will continue to be required. For me, rust ran me away from some otherwise good classics. I can't give you a value though without seeing more.
One thing on most of these is this, sellers typically dump tons of money into RRC's but only a few get any of that out on resale. Just my opinion.

Post it here and start at about $2500. Doesn't sound like a gem or low mileage or rust free or LWB and you're fed up so I'd be happy at that. Otherwise eBay it and hope for more.

b-pillar repair and removing the rack is bad. Maybe $3000+ if you're lucky.

I will remove the lights, rack might stay if i get asking price...I think i will hear a few more opinions from the LR gurus and maybe get some more pics to post it... I also have a ton of parts to go with it...nothing really expensive, but it does add up.

Looks like a perfect trail rig for someone. Start at $3500 and go from there. I wouldn't give it away by any measure.
