mods don't add value so you probably won't get much more then its actually worth. unfortunately.

yeah i figured that. hopefully some high school kids parents think it adds to the value though. lol

thought about listing it on craiglist for something i know i wont get for it and just see how many calls i get on it. like $6000

if your gonna part, what would you ask for the bar and lights?
agreed about mods, however the fact it's a reg cab 4.0L should net you a few bucks since they are kinda rare. especially with low miles. (ballpark of 9k miles/year)

think higher. if you want 6k at the end of the day list for 7.5 and if you get talked to 6 then you are good. if you make a little more great.

Looking good man. I love the height. I still need to get me some spacers and 33's. Once my tires wear out, I think I am going 32's or 33's. I want your hood and bumper :(

I'd say its worth 3-4k. At least thats what it would go for in this area.

Put all the stock parts back onto it, sell the aftermarket parts and the vehicle. You'll make more money that way.

It should fetch around 4-5k. Maybe more for someone who's looking for that truck.

I don't know if it is the picture, but the first thing I would do is clean up your headlights. Won't cost much but the return will be a clean pretty truck. People will pay for what they see, pretty sells faster and is worth more. How's the interior?

go by KBB, NADA and edmunds, take all 3 prices and then break it down the middle, then tack on a few hundred $$.
this should place you just below KBB but a little higher than either NADA and edmunds.
put that as your asking price, but allow yourself some "haggling" room.

I was surprised as all heck to find out the value of my truck when looking to trade it last month.

Damn, shouldn't have driven mine the last 60,000 miles checked the value on kbb and the difference between 90,000 miles and 150,000 miles is 3 grand!

I need a new gauge cluster!

I had spacers on mine for 4 yrs and there was no difference in ride quality, except on the good side.
the downside to spacers (depending on how thick) can be an alignment more often than normal, I had to get 1 every 6 months on avg.

Right. That's why I went with spindle lift instead of spacers. It messes with the UCA too much.

My area of GA, depends on how long you're willing to sit on it. I've seen older trucks with far more miles go for about 5k. I'd expect 6 - 7.5k around here.

thats the best way to do it IMO, I mean, if you want anything over 6, i'd start there and if you happen to get a 16 year old kid who just has to have it, his old man's gonna pay that much. i was thinking of selling mine after winter, but i don't know if i can part with it just yet.
