Fair Asking price for my truck?

So, as you all know ive had 3000000000000 ?'s about leasing, payments, and stuff. What would you think is a fair asking price? I think I am going to post my truck up on Craigslist, Ebay, here....soon. I dont want to trade it in for a new one and get screwed.
KBB says the trade in is 8690 (fair)-9325(excellent)
the private sell price is 11570
This is Stock....

I have:

dual hood scoops
04 valance and bumper
Jet Chip
K&N drop in
air silencer removed
V Force Dual Exhaust
Black headlights
black corners
billet grille
chromed Ford Emblem
12% tint
Rain guards
22x9.5 ION racing rims
305/40/22 Lexani Roadian Tires
Alteeza Black Euro light
Recon 3rd Brake Light
Line of fire
Panasonic head unit
Pioneer 4 way 6x8 all the way around
(2) 10 in MTX subs
1600W Bazooka amp
32x11.5 Winston A/T
OHC
Bully Side Steps
bed rails

I think thats it.......I know I will get lowballed too so Im not sure what to start it out at

around 11-12k would be about right. and no mods do not add value you never get out of a vehicle the stuff you add to it... if you think i am nuts just start reading the forums its been discussed before...

heck alot of times it HURTS a sale. people like stock vehicles when they go to buy

hm...I read dealerships dont like modded vehicles, because they have to sell them at auctions for that reason, but for private sales, I would think people would be drawn to a vehicle that is modded. So you would sell your truck for the 3k it books at if you were selliing and you have TONS of sweet stuff on your rig?

the problem with a modded vehical is that unless you know for a fact that the person who did the mods has a clue as to wtf their doing, its a toss up as to wether those 'mods' will come back to haunt you. Its like, if you lift your truck, even tho it was done right, and looks good, your overall value goes down because now your adding more wear and tear to the vehical. People like stock vehicals cause then there are no surprises. and also, if you modified it, and now are selling it, people question why your selling it after you put so much time and effort into it.

This is why, I havent done anything major to my truck. I dont know if im keeping it or not, so why lose money on a modified vehical?

often times vehicals that are modified require more maintenece than a non modded vehical.

Mods sell a vehicle around here, we have a lot of mommy and daddy bought vehicles around, as long as a kid sees it and it grabs his attention its sold, a ranger on 22's wouldnt last a week here.

Mods add no value with the exception of Rims.

that can bump your asking price up a bit but may scare away some buyers. your best bet is to return as much of the vehicle to stock as possible and sell your mods individually for more profit.

yea, i agree with the mod part. My dad said my truck looked like it was lifted. He said i hope they knew what they were doing and didnt f it up.

So i agree people look down on a truck that has been messed with a lot.

I on the other hand figure if they did it they would do it right being that it was a lift job, and they wouldnt want it to fall of going down the road.

sucks to buy it though wish i had a mommy or a daddy that would buy me acar.

when i look at cars I look to see what they did to them, the more stock the better.

Wheels would be an exception though. I think they can add value and are something that normally does not hurt the sale of the vehicle. either way i think mine is worth little to nothing any more. I dont really care tho, not planning on selling it.

Good luck selling it in MN. I had my Ranger Level II for sale in MN for many moons, for about 12K with 41K miles. I got a total of three phone calls from Minnesotans, and not one person actually came and looked at it. All of the interest I got was from way out of state (Fl, New york, MI) and I sold it to a gent from MI, for 11,500. Well Below book for trade at the time.

I looked at all your mods and I have to agree sortof, with everyone. Your mods will not really help the value of the vehicle BUT

they do help it look more of an excellent or well taken care of vehicle. It's like fresh paint on a new house, people like something shiny.

And as for pricing, I got my 2004 4wd FX4 with 38K for 13K 1 year ago. Just to help you on pricing.

As far as trade in value, mods do not add value. You might be abel to get some money for the mods if you sell private party, but it will depend on what you do to the vehicle and if those mods mean anything to them.

You are better off taking it to stock and selling the after market stuff seperately.
