    Just need some opinions on whether or not its going to be a p.i.t.a. to sell my truck when the time comes (maybe soon). Heres a quickrun down:

    2006 AC SSM Prerunner 4.0l auto w/ ~73k on it. 31" BFG A/Ts on black procomp wheels, 6k hid heads/fogs, tint, detailer kept. (two quarter size bedside dings )

    My issue is this: Truck was in an accident about a year ago. Mild pile up on the Freeway. Tweaked the hood a bit, broke headlights and grill, also entire bed assembly was replaced back to new (no frame damage or anything major in that sense, just bodywork). Nonetheless was fixed at the body shop back to new. I would definitely disclose that accident to someone who wanted to buy my truck if the carfax didnt report it. My question is , how big of an issue will it be when I sell it (if I do) and is it fair to say it falls under the GOOD category according to KBB. Thanks in advance guys.

    If the truck looks like it hasn't been in an accident, it is put back together properly, tracks straight, and doesn't need anything mechanical fixed. I would say good to excellent condition.

    if your up front about the repairs, and have the repair sheet, then your not hiding anything and being an honest seller helps.

    one other thing to consider, would you let your mom/grandma/sister buy that truck from you for the KBB asking price and not have a problem selling? If yes then good to excellent condition.

    That is my personal opinion.

    You are looking at good if it is fixed back to new condition. That is the diminished value lawyers harp about on TV ads.
