    Default Honest Opinion, Please

    How much is my truck worth? It's not for sale (yet). This thread is to gauge what the market is like. If you honestly think it's worth $2, then tell me $2. I promise you won't hurt my feelings.

    I'm trying to decide if it would be worthwhile to sell. I found another truck, that I really like and the price is right. The main thing holding me back is the value of my truck.

    Here's a summary:
    • 2005 KC 2wd XE (no power windows or locks)
    • 100k miles
    • Runs good, no problems in driving it.
    • Has some body damage. Rock chips and small dings on the hood, few scratches here and there, and damage to the rear bumper and quarter panel from my wife backing into my truck. Overall, it looks decent. From 20ft, you don't notice most of the defects.
    • Large stain on seat under console
    • Cracked exhaust manifold(s). Not audible when driving around. Only noticeable for the first minute or so when engine is cold.
    • Only mod is a 2 degree timing advance.


    So there's the major points I can think of. It's no show truck, that's for sure. But, it would be an excellent truck to use for work, or a cheap base for a heavily modded truck. Title is clear and in hand. I'd be happy if I could get $6500 for it, but not sure what the market is like.

    Here's some pics. Be brutally honest with me.


    Damage in rear


    Stain under center console


    Hood dings and rock chips


    With a good detailing, she still looks good.







    Yeah, I use it as a truck.

    Ouch!

    Yeah, the resale sucks on the Titan. Perhaps I could double the value by filling up with gas and airing up the tires.

    I traded my 06 in for a 2010 & the trade value was 12000.00. It was a SE crew cab texas titan with 68000 iles on it. You would be lucky to get about 9000.00 for yours.

    yeah your best bet would be to sell on your own maybe put some se or le wheels on it add factory fogs ... little things like that would help.may not get more money but would help move faster

    Damn... that's horrible depreciation! I can still manage 12K out of mine locally, as is!.. and with some mods.. well $$$.. that means all this time I could've gotten myself a fully loaded Titan LOL

    I'm always shopping around for vehicles, keeping an eye on what's on the market as far as from private sellers, not a fan of getting myself mixed up for years at a dealer.. but this is my opinion from what I know.. leaning towards Arizona.. you could start out that truck as is for 15K and any offers will be 2-4K less... now if you add the fog lights, mud guards, buy used better thread tires (say.. don't go over $200 for this), cover the hood rock chips with a plastic hood guard, seat covers that fit and look good.. then your offers will fall about 1-2.5K .... little investment that will give it more value. IF I were the one looking.. Now, in Cali.. especially So. Cal.. you'll be lucky to get 10K for it. Lol.... ONLY because from those pics.. it' looks bone stock down to the tires.

    yeah 10k rebates kill the resale for those who didn't get a 10k rebate.
