Sell or Part Out?
I have a 2003 F250 6.0l that hydro-locked (on fuel) on cylinder #3 and needs to be replaced according the dealer. The truck had 210k miles when this happened. I am heart broken but must decide what to do. I am not willing or capable of doing the work the myself right now so I am debating selling the truck as is or parting it out. The truck is a crew cab short bed, has a good trans (Torqflight), 4x4, and LOTS of new parts. I spent around $4k this summer on new parts including Sinisiter FICM (800), EGR Delete Kit w/new oil cooler ($665), HPOP (700), 4 injectors (800)(cylinders 2,4,6,8), an SCT Tuner to read codes (350), and the 2 oil pressure sensor units on the HPOP from Ford (~600). They all have less than 5k miles on them. I also have a stock of factory oil and fuel filters that I never got the chance to use
Here are my questions:
If I sell it as is what is it worth? Its an XLT with a camper shell and the front end is almost all new (ball joints, hubs/bearings, U-joints on front axle done last summer).
If I part it out is ebay a good option for selling parts? Other ideas?
I have learned a ton from the postings on this website and appreciate the information and friendship that is apparent in the writings. Without the guidance you all have provided I would not have been to able to keep the truck running as long as it did.
Thanks for any ideas or input you can provide.
