Mods are as followed:Arp head studs, egr delete, magnaflow exhaust, sct custom tunes by dave, cold air intake, Jr forged 24 inch wheels, Nav, Flip down DVD, New shocks and brakes, upper and lower ball joints, new interstate batteries, new alternator (both a month old), new clutch fan, new high pressure oil pump and lowered a little bit in the rear. has everything but sunroof and heated seats. Also has 08 tailgate and lights. Very clean truck no dents or scratches.
Look at the truck the way that the average Joe Q. Truckbuyer will look at it.
They don't care about what has been modified, unless it deducts from the value of the truck. They aren't going to care that it is tuned, has studs and most of what you see as adding value. They won't see it that way at all.
s: Will mean nothing to the average buyer, other than the engine has needed expensive repairs in the past.
: It is against the law and will result in the value of the truck dropping. The average buyer would want to return it to factory, and that will cost him money.
Exhaust, tuner/tunes/cold air intake
: None of them are worth additional cash to the average buyer. It has to have an exhaust and an intake that filters. It doesn't need a tune to run.
Forged wheels, navigation, DVD
: Depending on how professional the install looks, this would add to the value, however not very much.
Shocks, brakes, balljoints, batteries, alternators, clutch fan, HPOP
would all be looked at as all routine maintenance items, and wouldn't add very much value.
: Average buyer wouldn't care
: Average buyer would wonder why the tailgate was replaced.
There aren't many (if any) modifications that would offer much in the form of a return at resale unless you find the guy that is looking for the vehicle you are selling, wants to have those modifications done (or was planning to do them himself).
