Might have to sell the OBS...

Really hate to have to post this to you all, but sadly i might have to sell my truck.
I have a '97 f-250 powerstroke extended cab, with 236k miles on her and she has been everything i've wanted in a truck. I bought her from a dealer in Oregon close to where i lived for 6,350 bucks.
Mods:
- 6637 mod
- 3'' dp to full 4'' MBRP turbo back exhaust (sadly i was in a rush to put it on that i didn't bang the firewall enough and rattles when downshifting.)
- D66 turbo that i just bought and am waiting for a weekend to install
- Ordering a Phoenix 6 pos chip from PHP (when i can get a hold of him)
- Auto down windows for both diver and passenger (took my time and did it really nice)
- 285/75/16 toyo mountain country tires (bought in September of last year, rotated every 2-4 mounts) + 3 spares and an unmounted toyo tire
- Oil change w/fuel filter every 5k miles (only delo 400)
- FPR screen cleaned last oil change
- New Mechanical fuel pump
- Overhead console from an ford explorer
- 3 gauge pod with EGT, boost, trans temp (Glow Shift sadly)
- New intake boots (to the turbo and 'Y' boots) from Riff Raff Diesel
- An all alum intercooler from a new body 7.3 (not plumed)
- New master and slave for the clutch w/new pedals and a extra plastic clip for the clutch
- All new breaks front + rear w/new wheel cylinders (best ones from Napa, new fluid as well)
- 6 and 7 way plug for towing with a ball in the bed for a gooseneck
Few think i might be overlooking

Bad;
- 2nd and 5th gear are worn out
- I hit a curb on a really tight bridge in sacramento, causing me to pinch the front passenger tire (has been replaced) aliment is off and need a camber kit
- This might sound odd but i had to remove an brace for a crossmember when i put i my exhaust ( MBRP didn't fight right, im 80% sure i will go back in if and when i fix the downpipe rattle)
- and you know just body wear from being 15 years old

i guess im asking what yall think i can get for her. currently in my Sacramento and i don't know the prices for this truck down here with all i've done, i know you can't get what you paid for in parts i've put but i would like the community opinion.
Thanks everyone for reading

Sad to hear you have to sell it, may I ask why?

If you feel like selling your d66 let me know.
