Whats my truck worth?

I am just curious as to what my truck would be worth if I were to sell it which could be a possibility here. I put new front fenders on it and it was painted with Eastwood Rat Rod black this summer. I have a ton of mods as listed in my sig along with a brand new Cummins head, 62/65/14 Turbo, header, Head studs and a few other things that could go with it. It looks a bit different than these pics as I have bedliner along the rockers and have the rump stripes on (Gloss Black) She's got 245K on the clock. No rust holes...some surface bubbles that popped back up on the rear wheel wells but I can fix those.

Thanks guys....I know the Rat Rod black paint is going to be an issue and it's a love hate thing.....If someone offered me $12K for it I would sign the title over today and help load all the spare parts. I have to keep the Deathproof Duck off the hood though....that doesn't go unless it's built into the price .

that is what i got for quick value check fill in the details n options to get the correct value for your area. . .

Seems to be worth $5,000-$9,000 . . . with that flat black paint job a lot of people are going to stay away with all them miles another factor not helping you. . .

I'd say for a real world offer it'll sell in the $3,000-$5,000 range folks are tight and very picky at least around here anyway. . .

now im nowhere near an expert on these, but i would say its worth 8k-11k. people that have never been around diesels would think thats its got way to many miles on it, but ive found that the miles really dont hurt these things, price wise(unless its over 300k, and dependability) mine is a 98.5 24V 4x4 5spd, i paid 10k for it at a carlot with 234k miles on it.

$11K don't ya think that's pushing it ? thats about $2,000 over the book value good luck getting a banker lend that kind of cash against it. . .

folks with that amount in cash are buying New maybe New/used but certainly not a truck in excess of 200K miles , that is modified and has a flat paint job. . .

Around my neck of the woods it would considered a beater truck its a $3,000-$5,000 farm truck or plow truck maybe even a race car hauler. . .

you only seem to get about ten cents on the dollar for after market parts, so spend $1,000 the resale is only $100 . . .

Not that i'm harshing the truck its fine looking Rig, I just know how people are when it come time to open up the pocket book and or line of credit. . .

i would say if your going to list it go for $7,000 OBO. i personally like the truck. i love the rat black but a lot of people dont. the 98 is a positive but the automatic is a negitive. people are gonna love it or hate it. it would be a hard sell. i do have to agree with m123kt-450 a little. it would be very hard to get top dollar for it. if you would like to get as much out of it as possible. take it to maaco and get the $500 special. i have seen some of there work. honestly for $500 id do it. it wouldnt be the paint job id want if i was gonna keep the truck but if i went to look at a used truck the paint would look awesome. just an idea.
