whats it worth?

Buddy offered to trade (plus cash on my part of course) for his cummins. Now i know yes, this is powerstroke area here, but you guys know my truck and what its worth more than a cummins or dmax guy so im here. My truck is in my sig, and is still bone stock. hes got a 96 i think it was 12 valve club cab dually, stacks, injectors, dual disk clutch, dvs boost elbow, gauges, raptor pump, 4kgsk and valve springs that arent in the truck yet. kdp was fixed, new oil pump, radiator and intake. He blew out one of the back windows taking the bed off (corner tapped it and it broke, its the 3 piece sliding one) and the body is decent with 150k. What kinda cash should i consider in addition to my truck?

Also, ive got a vibration (u joint it seems) and a squeaky belt, but is fine besides that. He books at 6k, i book at 7k and have a reman engine within the past year or two, and tranny reman tag says 2004.

Your truck books for more and you're going to give hime your truck plus cash? I can only give you my opinion but I wouldn't do that trade and I sure wouldn't do the trade plus cash on your end. Those mods on his truck really are not anything that great that they would make the truck worth thousands more.

Hes one of my friends so i know the condition (i actually worked on the damn thing lol). I understand hes trying to make his money back. Everything i listed on the truck has been done within the past month, and he really doesnt drive it much. He paid 5k for the truck and put a good 4k into it between fixing and mods. i was thinking like 1500 and my truck woulda been pretty reasonable, since thats about 8500 cash if he sells my truck for book value. Am i wrong about that being reasonable?

No way am I going back to a 1996 truck from a 2000!!! You already have the best year for a PSD, keep the darn thing and put some money into it. Still wont spank the Cummins, but it will be rollin coal long after it died. For real value you need to see what they are selling for in your area, location greatly affects cost. Around here you can get top asking dollar for a 7.3, they are proven and the ranchers and farmers know what they will do, but it's funny you can hardly give away a 6.0, especially a 03 or 04 6.0. They know their trucks around here!!!

I need to get out of a reg cab and i need the 4wd. I got the current since i needed a truck to get to and from school, and refused to go back to gas. the 12valve has been proven to be a reliable, long lasting engine just like a 7.3. Not like a vp truck where id have more luck shooting myself in the foot and walking lol

I probably wouldn't. If yours was a 98 or earlier I would, but you have a sweet setup as is.

But if you are going to trade, just trade straight across. I like those older gen dodges aswell as the 12v, but I wouldn't give him any money extra. I think you are already losing a little.

Sounds like your mind is already made up. Don't ask this org for permission or for a blessing to trade to an older Cummings. If you feel it is the right thing for you to do at this time in your life, then just do it.

Well the original purpose was to find out what i should pay cash. He put a good 4 k into it within the last month, i know this is fact. Now stock for stock, id be gettin cash from him lol. But seeing as book to book and the money he put in, straight up isnt really fair anymore. I just wanted some general input. Ill be getting another 7.3 soon enough...maybe an obs? unless you can put a 7.3 in the newer trucks
