    Hi guys, I'm hoping this is the right spot but I'm really stumped as to what to sell my truck for. It has lots of new parts here's the deal

    The Good:

    My Daily Driver Believe it or not!!!
    Bored and Stroked 302cu V8 to 350 LT4
    6 inch BODY lift
    33 inch tires new in Summer
    Recently rebuilt Carb
    Rebuilt tranny a year or two ago
    New rad recently
    New brakes recently
    SOLID Chassis
    Interior is in good shape
    Starts up strong
    Fuel tank/lines/feeding neck recently done

    The Bad:

    Crack in windshield
    Left front hub is locking in 4wd, the 4wd itself works its just a hub problem



    The Ugly:

    The body is shot, the rear of the body is done in so the tailgate is off



    I've put alot of money into this and the tires alone were 800 in the summer. What do you guys think? I'll post some pics upon request. I appreciate any guesstimates!!!!

    woah big red flag:
    "6 inch BODY lift"

    i hope you mean suspension...

    honestly from the sound of it you'd be better off parting it out. become a member and put it up in the for sale section.

    Year?

    i see your close to me, the body problem, in the rear is probably as bad as mine, witch means the whole thing is shot, body suport members and mounts are most likely gone.

    i would advertize the moter in the tri-add, and pull parts like doors, and cut out floor pans if there good, and scrap the body. find a new shell, for the truck or sell the rolling 4x4 frame, it will be worth more to you.

    BTW if you are interested in a new truck I know of a localy avalable suburban from arazona for 5000CAD, supost to be mint shape, but i have not seen it though.

    bad time to do it, but if you can find a cheap plow slap that on and sell it as a plow truck, many companys buy them and leave them in parking lots to plow with . they dont insure or register them so it doent have to be saftyed. maybe swap the moter for something elce.

    Why not pay for a membership so you can make this a legitimate for sale add in the correct forum?
