Is this trade worth it? HELP!

Hey guys I am looking to do a trade for this F-350 2002. Could you guys give me your thoughts. I only paid $11'700 for both my bikes together. I got a really good deal on them. This is my first time going into the Ford Family. I am not real familiar with them. Your help and honesty will help me out and is much appreciated.

Kbb rates the truck, at 17500. That's with none of this included.

What are your thoughts on this? Need some ASAP.

I have custom:
06 GSXR 1000
09 ZX6R

And he has:

2002 F350 with 68k miles on it.
12" Lift from BigGun Customs
46" tires
Road armor bumpers front and rear
Bushwhacker fender flares
Custom grille
Fog lights
Winch
Programmer
HKS Super Sequential Blow off valve
Fox Racing Suspension all the way
Rebuilt tranny
Putting new rearend gears before I trade.

Sure

Sure thing.



Based on that above it's worth about 100 grand in this market (if you convert it to RH drive that is)....

Seriously tho, if it gets you off those damn motorbikes before you kill yourself being a "Temporary American" then it's worth every damn cent.

Everything is relative - thats a hundred grand luxury tax vehicle your getting yourself there, and those two bikes might be combined only worth maybe 30K here by comparison (and no RH drive conversion required).

Looks to me like you come out in front.

My only concern might be has the guy been competition rock crawling in the thing and stressed the heck outta of everything or is it still a sweet ride?

I think it looks like a sweet deal - and at 53 Ive been round the block n back a couple times before today.

Others Mileage May Vary tho - lets see what others think/say.

An 02 one ton with only 68k that needed a transmission and a new rear end? Plus he's willing to trade down on value by almost 50%? With how popular this truck with that engine and those mods are, I would be wary of either odometer roll back or frame damage. Get a Carfax and a thorough inspection by a specialist. I hate to look a gift horse in the mouth, but sometimes they are getting rid of the horse for a reason. Seen the Doritos goat commercial?

The tranny and rear end are probably related to the lift ran w stock gears too long before regraring. I think my trans is starting to slip myself as it still has the 3.73 in it. Have my 4.56 in the garage just it's the one area in my truck I don't wanna dig into myself as I don't have the tools needed to get it setup right and findin someone I trust to do it near me isn't too easy. Plus selling lifted vehicles isn't all that easy depending on where u live. Just definitely check everything out (salvage title?, get an Oasis, Carfax, etc etc) but IF it checks out its def worth the trade value wise.

He said clean title, no salvage, he only drove it 4k miles with no problems. He doesn't know car fax. Is there a way I can check that online

Yes think all u need is the VIN. Carfax.com. And if a member on here you can ask to have an oasis report run to look at maintenance.
