Maybe I should sell the truck

I do this every 6 months or so, thinking about what it would be like to not have a truck payment, and usually there is something to keep me from putting it up for sale. First time, it was how much money I have already paid on it, and if I were to sell, that money may as well have been flushed down the toilet (15k or so, just in principal). Then it was, this truck is all I'll ever need, so let's keep it.

Lately the thought has come up again. Do I try and sell it, and take the loss, or just take it in the shorts and pay it off in FIVE MORE YEARS?

What should I expect to get for it?

33,xxx miles

2006 XLT, CC, SB, PSD, cloth seats 60/40 front and rear, steel 18" wheels with brand new Dura Grapplers, B&W gooseneck hitch, SCT, triple guage pod

Now its at 6.8%. I have had to refi twice to gt lower payments. They really took me to the cleaners, and I let them. I thought I ended up with a great deal, but what wouldn't give to have my F-150 back
