Advice on potential sale

I'm quickly realizing that the RRC isn't really a practical addition to the driveway. Working on it is distracting me from the defender with the relative lack of time I now have. In short, it's one more project than I really need to have. If it were a tacoma or other pickup truck I could justify it as at least it would be more usable. But it isn't. What I could use is some advice on what people think I should ask for it if I sell it. Note that I do NOT want to part it out, see above about having no time. I may take a few items off for the 90, but again with the time issue. Details are posted below -- what would be a reasonable asking price for it?

1991 Hunter
125,000 +/- miles
Green

The good:
Superwinch 9K lb winch
remote solenoid pack
ARB front bumper
Full NRP exhaust
NRP cat sliders
dual batteries
Cobra CB with remote speaker
Hilift mounted on ARB
Usual cloth Interior with manual seats
Dog Guard
OME Lift @ 2"
235/85 BFG MTs in good shape on 3 spokes with a stock spare
no sunroof to leak
ARB Compressor
sliders with outriggers (look like RTE)
steering guard
dif guards front and rear
Runs remarkably well.
Very little rust save the liftgate

The Bad:
It's beat up. Lots of dents. Liftgate shot. Missing the small rear seat, though I may be able to get it. Headliner removed though the backing is still there. blower only works on high (easy fix). Could use a battery management system. Still 10 spline and open.

It would make a great trail truck. I've been using it as a daily driver, and still could and slowly part it I suppose, but I think it will suit someone else's needs better.

Thoughts?

Unfortunately, you will probably make more money parting it out. Selling it as is, it is not worth very much.

Oh I'm sure you're right, though dealing with all of the emails asking for some idiot part, lowballing on good parts, the time to strip it, ship parts, and deal with waiting for money then dealing with the hulk -- not really interested. I haven't had time to get the defender through safety inspection in 2 months!

With a shot liftgate, $1800-2000 tops.
