    ^ This is spot on, including the last line. He knows the market, as did the dealerships that quoted me "buy it" prices for my low mileage DC Sport that recently went down the road for a trade in on... your trucks twin, in a 2012 with 4,000 miles on the odometer. That unit, for just $500 more than your asking price, was a pavement queen I found already wearing new sneakers, complete with PC wheels and + 2 sized Goodyear Kevlars.

    Mine was a rare find, in that it hadn't been on so much as a dirt road yet and nor ever was it in Cali to be launched off a dune. Your truck will sell, but you need to wait for the right buyer. Getting anxious to move it will likely end up costing you more in the long run. As others have said, losing the "kid style" modded up ad will help a great deal. I too would have ran your ad over and not bothered to back up based on its original wording. Dropping over 20 large on a used truck puts you in a bad bracket, in so far as the cost and benefit of buying new isn't that much further away.

    I would put it back to stock, as in make it smell stock... list it as such and it will sell faster than the previously marketed attempt. There are guys like me who have done the mod thang, and just simply prefer to run em as they make 'em.
