    I'm thinking of updating my personal truck and don't feel the blue book values are truly representative of what a truck should sell for....I got a 2002 Ford Excursion, 7.3 diesel (afe stage 2 intake/air filter, MBRP stainless exhaust, chip),(138,000 miles), monochromatic black (not 2 tone), leather, 3rd row, 6 disc cd, premium sound, entertainment system(vhs, 8in screen) warn hubs, new tires, new brakes, blizzard 8ft plow. think its fair to good condition. Figured I should just keep it as a backup plow truck for those numbers....anyone have thought of where it should be priced at?:help:

    What is the value? And what do you thin the value is? No matter how nice it is, its still almost 14 years old. That takes away value in a hurry

    I'd just look at prices on Ebay or something like that. That'll give you a good idea as to pricing.

    7-10 grand is all I'd pay. Tops. But you find a 7.3 zombie and they'll drain their account for it.

    What is KBB saying it is worth? Anyone looking to buy is going to be looking up the value on there or a similar site, and then that will make them only want to pay that amount. Or as Sawboy said, you need to find a 7.3 zombie.

    The 7.3 guys are harder and harder to find now that the trucks are 15 years old.

    $8k to $11K ish
    You may not get any money back for all the stuff you put in it. If you have proof of the upgrades - maybe you will.

    I overpaid for a truck once but the guy had I pile of receipts he had spent on it. Plus one for the transmission at 6K that had about 10k miles on it. Also it had never been worked or plowed with.

    KBB and NADA are crap sometimes but everyone looks there. Look on Autotrader and Ebay for a few weeks and see what thing are really Selling for not just what they are asking.

    Black Book & Menheim Auctions are closer to true ACV.

    As someone else mentioned you don't get the $$$ back out of the upgrades, maybe pennies on the dollar. Remember you set it up the way you like it and not everyone has exactly the same tastes. And contrary to belief only 5% or so of used vehicles fall into the "excellent condition" category. Although to the right buyer upgrades might make the difference between average price & "high book" retail.

    Food for thought:

    It's worth more to me as a backup truck than the $7K in my pocket. Figured a decent plow truck would be a little more. Even stripped down in parts it should be more?

    It's worth less as a plow truck. Never more. I'd be happy to get 7 grand for it. It's a 14 year old truck with almost 150k miles on it.

    A quick look @ KBB shows retail in VG condition to be around $12k which seems steep. NADA shows higher at around 14k, which seems really high.

    OP: You think it is worth more than that?

    Seems like they're going for high teens to low 20's on ebay....most with 5-10 views per hour...so they seem to be desired...?

    Not that they aren't a good truck and engine, but high teens to low twenties is way too much.

    Excursions hold a high value. The book prices are in line with what they go for. $10k for one in great condition is reasonable. I say if you want to keep it, keep it.

    V10 Excursions usually go for 3-4k. If you have a 7.3, then Ive seen them anywhere from 7-15k, depending on condition. The 2005 6.0's go for STUPID money because they are the last year?
