    My advise can be summed up into one word "Patience". It is going to take some time to get that kind of money out of a truck because most of the people in the market for a vehicle are shopping on a low price mentaility.

    Another thing to consider is most of the mods you have done you could probably take off and keep for the new blazer and lower the price accordingly to sell it quicker. Drop in a set of stock 1/2 ton axles and springs w/31" tires and it will appeal to a larger market at a lower price.

    The correct forum would be the "For Sale" forum...not the Garage. As for the rest of your question I'd agree with Kenny. The stocker the better for resale unless you're in no hurry at all. Modified anything takes away from resale for most people...
