    THINKING ABOUT SELLING ... Want your opinion on what i should do to my truck with out putting too much more into it. to help the average joe want to buy it for as close to $20 k as i can get. (
    ---THESE ARE A COLLECTION OF Pictures that will interest the certain buyer, this is a built so in some pics you'll see mods such as tire gate, front bumper ... ect in some and not in others

    REASON FOR SELLING lost job, new job can't keep up in payments Payments are a b*t*h thinking about selling my truck to get into something more affordable. YES I built this truck from stock and up !!!, yes i plan to build another one day, but not anytime soon and more to specs of actual " DREAM Truck." but what you all say should add or minus to help sell the truck .... i want to sell for near what i owe on it ( 20 k )
    to do / fix list to interest shoppers / buyers
    -repaint everything chipping black back to black
    -fix that rear bumper
    - ? horn doesn't work nor does the cruise control (the srs reel went out upon doing the sas and i've just never fixed it.)
    specs on the truck
    just shy of 130,000 miles, auto everything, always taken care of by mechanics, yes its gotta SAS, trail gears 5" kit front and rear, ( dana 44 off of a 88 wagoneer ) geared front 410 rear 411, rear E-LOCKER . NO FRONT LOCKER....

    LET ME KNOW WHAT YOU WOULD + or - from truck to sell or buy or comment

    the average joe will not buy a sas truck... especially not for 20k. mods don't increase value.. which sucks

    i probably would have thought about this before cutting the front end out. I would advise not doing any serious mods to a truck that cannot be reversed whenever you have a loan. because this is a sick truck yes; but if someone were interested in something like this and had 20k to spend then they would more than likely build it their self.

    WOW, sure looks like you haven't really been able to afford this truck ever with all the debt. There's a reality check coming.

    Dude I hate to be rude but 20k way to much. The back won't even loan the new person that for it and the people that want it won't have that much cash to put up. My best advice is to shred the card then go to the bank and refinance your truck for as much as possible and the longest term possiable. Then take that cash and pay down the card. Because the truck loan will be a better Interest rate. Then work hard to put all your extra cash to pay down the card. I was in way more debt that you at one time and have payed it off.

    Yeah I would look into some debt consolidation. You're not going to get nearly what you want for it, i'd say half. Debt consolidation could lower your payments and would probably just make them longer term.
