Well, generally, you can just forget about much in the way of value being added from all the mods. Lots of mods turns many buyers off.

So, check around the various places where trucks are being sold and go by the prices being asked. "Asked" being the key, just because someone puts a certain price on what they are selling, doesn't mean they will be getting that for it.

And, the quicker you want to get rid of it, the cheaper the price would need to be.

I know this isnít the post you want to see, and I wish I could say your truck is worth $xx,xxx but the reality is that no one can say that. We all know that a trucks only worth what someone else is willing to pay unfortunately.

I can appreciate and respect the nice list of mods you have on your truck, but a bank is only going to finance someone for the NADA or KBB value of your truck. I hate to say it, but your mods mean nothing to that value, meaning if youíre trying to sell the truck with the mods on it, you're likely dealing with a cash buyer or someone who can put enough down to pay for the mods and finance the truck, not a common buyer.

I tried to sell my Tundra with the mods on it and didnít have any luck. I priced it at KBB value and added 25% of the value of the mods I had on it at the time, everyone that was interested just wanted to point out that I was asking more than NADA. I wound up returning it to stock, getting almost NADA retail for a trade-in, and selling the mods separately for almost 40% of what I paid for them.

I wish you the best of luck with your sale, and hope you find a buyer that sees the full value of that truck, and not a bank buyer who gets it for just NADA value.

Keep it or part it out. You will never come close to recouping what you put into it as a modded truck. Personally I deduct for mods like that as i see it as a possible money pit. You may find some young kid willing to go in debt and pay more for it but you are dealing with a very small market. Most people don't want something that as been "modded" like that. Not what you want to hear but that's my take on it.

Like others have said, you won’t get much for the mods. Looking at the parts list I say if at all possible just keep the truck and enjoy it.

Yep, I would pay more for an unmolested vehicle than a modified one.
Unless it was one where I had picked the parts and done all the work. But then it'd probably already be mine, so I wouldn't be buying it.

Mods are for you, not the next owner.
Mods do not add value to the truck.
It is worth what someone is willing to pay and what you are willing to accept.
Mods will make the truck more difficult to sell and that brings value down.
Selling due to distress from divorce, foreclosure, job loss, child birth, family drama and repossessions all reduce the value of the truck.

Here in Utah a nice lift and tires/wheels will actually make it worth a bit more than a stock truck but all of your other mods won’t add any value at all and will actually scare many buyers off.

Not sure why any of those circumstances would affect the value of a vehicle.
Unless the seller makes it clear that he/she is desperate.

Maybe reduces the value in the seller's eyes, because they just need out.

But, I don't think any of this is what the OP wanted to hear.

He probably wanted to hear that his truck was worth tons of $$$.

Yeah, but unless the seller puts "Divorce forces sale", or something similar in an ad, or mentions the predicament in person, the potential buyer won't know to kick them while their down.

After all, a certain vehicle has a certain value, regardless of the reason for selling it, right?
Although a lower priced vehicle will likely sell faster - unless the price is so low that it looks suspicious.
I have bypassed a few too-good-to-be-true vehicles because of that.

Well IMO there are several things going on here.

1) the truck is modified which does make a lot of people see it as "abused" well used.

2) the resale prices of these trucks is very high close enough that you can get a new one with better financing making the payment comparable

3) Most people need to rely on financing and do not have the cash to buy the vehicle.

Personally I avoid "modified" vehicles, I like stock so I know what is going on with it. With that being said I am in a position right now with my 2012 that I either need to trade it in, sell it or delete it. If I delete it I am of the thought I will own it till it is worthless because of it being modified.

On the positive side there is the person out there that will love the vehicle and have the means to buy it.
As to actual value I would price it at the number of a stock truck, I know that is not what you want to hear but buyers are not normally going to pay a premium for mods.
