because of the rust you found? at least fix that then think about selling, you'd have batter luck, cuz I wouldn't buy it if I seen that rust.

and you do what you gotta do but the 7.3 is a awsome truck.

I am completely going through my truck. I am converting to dually, rebuilding the entire interior and changing it to tan (if I can find a drivers door panel), rebuilt the suspension, did a bunch of mods and so on. I am 2 years into the project and expect at least another year ending with a 5K high quality paint job. WHY? You ask? By the time I am done I will have about 25K total (I do all the work myself) into my truck including rebuilding the engine and trans. I will have a brand new classic truck (think resto mod). Or I could have gone out and bought a 08 or newer with 80K to who know how many miles on it and paid 30K and up. See where I am going with this? The economics work out better for fixing up my old truck and making it exactly what I want from colors to features vs. buying something newer and having payments and still having to settle for whatever the truck has on it. This seems to be working out for us it may or may not work out for you.

agree, and anything new has alot more emisions crap on it just my keep it and fix it up, unless your planning on getting a suv/car (getting out of trucks) that fits family/life better then I could see that, but even then I'd still keep it around to have a truck to do hauling. because here with the aformentioned issues you'd only get 6-9k anyhow if your lucky. just my

Those are very inexpensive fixes. I'm sure one of your buddy's buddy knows how to do bodywork for some type of reimbursement.

Hell I still have my 95 for the hell of it, no blinkers, clear tails (with a white bulb) 7 different colors, jerry rigged on everything, but she runs great, and you can't buy loyalty. I have a few crew cabs because I have a family that fits in them, if I have 1 more kid I'm getting a fleet of excursions tho

Thanks for all the sound advice/ talking me off the ledge. I appreciate it. It's definitely cheaper to keep her. I better get cracking on the repairs.
