    Well, since I've seen the rig in person, I'd say you'd probably be justified to be asking for somewhere around $7K amdn maybe more.

    I'd suggest pulling the tires, axles, lift parts etc and return the truck to stock height on 33 tires and put in a set of stock 3.73 axles. You will probably never get the money back out of most of the mods you have done on it and those parts would serve you well under your buggy project. Then if the rest of the truck is nice enough to get $3-5K you would be well on your way to a buggy.
