Selling - Need advice

After buying an '07 Sport Trac in December, I'll soon be selling my '99 Ranger. What I'm having trouble with, other than getting all sappy and sentimental about losing the truck, is in what state to sell it, with or without mods. I'm trying to decide what to sell it with and what to keep, sell separate, or put on the Trac. Here's how the truck is set up now:

1" body lift and +1" torsion twist to level
33X10.50 BFG AT's on Ultra Rims
Bilstein 7100's front (not resevoir) on Camburg mounts from Camburg's old "upgrade"
Bilstein 5150's rear
Black diamond plate low profile toolbox
Class III Trailer Hitch
Auto dim mirror/auto headlights
Explorer OHC
Cheapo Amp/Subwoofer
Pair of Harbor Freight lights on tabs in front of grill
That's all I can think of.

Most likely what I'll do is keep the tires/rims and put the stock 16's back on with a set of used tires around a 245 or 265. I'll swap the stock cd from the Trac with the aftermarket from the Ranger. That's where I'm stumped as far as what will add value or detract or if I could make out better by selling a few of these things online. A thought was to swap the front shocks if they're valved right and sell the rears if I can find some stock shocks, but is it worth the trouble?

Help me out

^x2 dont take the tires uness you take the lift cuz a lift with stock tires would look ridiculous and as for the shocks it wouldnt be worth the trouble.

he's only got a 1" bodylift, so it wouldn't look all that stupid with stock tires on it..

Yup.

You will always be better of parting out what you can. The question is if it is worth it to you to go to the trouble of putting it back to stock. Really the only extra that would be a good selling point for the truck is the hitch. I'd leave the shocks and interior stuff too.

I'd part it out... it won't really help out the value unless you find the right buyer who wants it!

Thanks for the replies. The 33's are definately staying with me to hopefully go on the Trac one day. I'm hopeful that the "right buyer" will spot it. The 1" body lift should be fine especially if I put on some 265's. Any idea what I can hope to get for it? It's got a 3.0 with around 180K on the odometer, in great condition for any milage.

$6k at the most. Probably $4 to 5k.
