How do those stock fuel squirters spool that turbo?
How many miles on the truck, how are the tires, any work needed? Body in good shape and rust free? Those will all play a big part in value.

the turbo spools up just fine like 1800 rpm. it has 4.10 gears in it so you cant really tell a difference.

Unfortunately your go-fast parts aren't going to raise the sell price by much, if at all. I'd take a stab and say $8-9k.

Maybe with the snow plow 8-9k if you're lucky. 200k with rust, like chase said, go fast parts don't do much for value.

If I was buying it honestly the most i would give would be 5500 maybe 6000. The plow hurts the value in my opion. I payed 4000 for mine with 198000 and no rust.

Yup, if I saw a plow and go fast parts I would think "used a lot". A complete factory (Cobra neck DP and stock intake) I would think "virgin". imo.

Figure in the cost of a plow ($2-3K roughly, depending on the plow) and the truck might bring $8-9k with the plow attached. That's what I based my guess on. Truck alone, you'll have a real hard time getting a dime over $5k, $6k if you're really lucky.
Honestly if you are looking to sell you are better off going back to stock and selling the go fast parts and plow separately.

You are SOO right. Put it back to stock and sell the plow and aftermarket parts. You'll be amased at how much you'll make. Stock truskc bring more money.

Keep in mind, different states value these trucks differently. I think Chase will agree with me, Washington State values these trucks more than say Texas. So keep that in mind.
