Should I sell my 6.0? With or without new tires?

I have an 05 Black/brown Lariat CCSB with all the goodies. 8" lift and 2" bodylift (10" total), 20" Driv Blitz Rims and 38" Toyo MT Tires, LineX Bedliner, MBRP Straight Pipe, AirRaid CAI, aftermarket grill and stock grill with inserts, sound system, upgraded FICM (Atlas 40 from FICMrepair.com) and a few other things. I bought it new and got it lifted and have only put 29k miles on it. I am in need of new tires which got me thinking of whether I should just sell it as is or buy new tires and sell it or buy new tires and keep it. I've gone back and forth and think I might test the waters. Should I add new tires before listing it or try as is? Or keep it?

Someone has too much money if they contemplate selling because it needs tires

Try as is.

People don't look at tires as much as you think they do. With new tires you lose the value of them right away because you can't really jack up the price just because you bought new tires.

hahah not at all man. Tires are just a big expense so it really made me think about whether I want to spend the money if I am unsure of keeping the truck or not.

Yea that is what I was thinking. New tires would be a selling point but I would lose money on the tires. Kbb says I can get about 29k for it. It is in great condition other than normal wear & tear on such low miles and some scratches that can be removed with a good detail. But are these trucks selling quick and easy?

I see it as 22-24k.

But different parts of the country sell differently. Good luck with sale.

Shot the only reason I got a 6.0 because they are the cheapest diesels for sale. Around here a duramax or Cummings bring 5 - 10 k more easy. Good luck with sale.

Yea I see them going for 30 around here and at least double the mileage. They are usually in the high tens or hundreds
