Need an estimate?

This is probably the wrong section, I apologize.. but I'd like to know what true FTE would value this truck as - I want to get rid of my truck that's sitting at my moms house. It was a graduation present and I don't really drive it, she uses it to haul gravel and dirt and stuff for her garden and back yard, so I kinda just left it there for her to use. Now she wants it gone. Lol.

All through senior year I modded this thing.. Here's the specs,

2001 Ford F-150 XLT 4.2L V6 - 62,000 Org. Miles
* All eletrictronic
* Sport
* Step Side
* K & N Intake
* JM Air Censor
* Rhino liner
* 17"'s
* Towing package - Reese hitch/ball included.
* True duals, no cat - no muffler. (Straight pipes) 2 1/2" piping 2" Chrome tips. (Actually sounds legit as hell for a 6).

* Alpine system - 2 kickers - amp, surround sound tweeters in the top back.

* Dome light, tweeters, speakers, and head unit light up blue from a switch.



It won't light up at the line, but it's got enough top end to keep up with my cousins 350 V8 Camaro.

Sorry for only one picture. Couldn't really get around to take anymore.

Take a look at Kelly Blue Book, take off another $1200 FOR THE CATS...cause that is what it will cost you to have them replaced

Let's just do some basic math.....

The truck has 4 cats (assumption).....
If you order universal 50 state (non- Calif) units, including shipping, & tax, they run about $180-$200 each...so for easy math for us dummies, lets say $200 each.....

$200 each times 4 = $ 800

Now take these to a muffler shop, they on avg charge 30-60 minutes labor to install each universal cat......at minimum that is $200...so we are at $ 1,000.....So if you live in a rural area, it might be a little less, if you are in a metro area its going to be a little more....

Now lets look at a cat replacement system, a 4-cat replacement unit, non-Calif, wholesale starts at $600 plus shipping (on avg), retail depending on quality is about double....so $1,200, install, $400 minimum....unless you are really, really lucky!

Obviously, depending on production date, you could have fewer cats....great! That will save some $.............

So much for basic math for "Dummies".............

The local muffler shop sells highflow, and normal cats for 69.99-89.99$. I don't need a shop, I have my own welder and I do my own work. So even if it did have 4 cats, and I wanted the best of the best;

89.99 X 4 = 359.96.

I have my own equipment, so even with tax the most I could possibly spend is 400 dollars.. Your numbers are from WAY to high priced materials, and labor costs. Hell I can find cats at freakin' autozone for cheaper than that lmao.

Sorry, but it sounds like you are getting very good prices not typcally associated throught the country in major metro areas & with you doing the install, it sounds good. I live in SoCal where cat systems (such as the one I just purchased for my own vehicle from maggie) was $900 incluing shipping (wholesale)- MSRP $2200.

I live in a little town in North Florida. That's probably why. I apologize for being rude, I've just never heard of prices that high in my life. I might aswell buy a new truck for that kind of price, lol.
