I'm throwing around the idea of selling my 1998 extended cab and buying a double cab. My daughter is getting a bit too big to fit in the back. Below are the mods I have done. The NADAGuides webpage says about $8000. What do you think it is worth?

1998 Tacoma Extended Cab 4x4 5spd 101,000miles
4.56 gears with lockright in rear axle
JBA Headers
FlowPro Muffler
TJM front bumper
Allpro rear bumper
Stubbs Welding sliders
Sony stereo (deck and 4 speakers with a Bazooka in the back)
Radio Shack CB
Brake controller (I tow a pop-up) and towing kit
OME 881s and OME Leafs in the rear (2 - 2.5-inches).
285r75-16 Dunlop Mud Rovers
Konig wheels
Pinch-weld has been bent down
Port kit cruise control
The drivers front fender has been dented and the windshield is cracked

~8000-8500 sounds about right-
the mileage should be a strong selling point.

The other mods can't really get you more money unless you find the right buyer

You may want to consider parting out some items such as the Bumpers or even the lockright- Especially if you are going to trade it in.

If that is the case- Dibs on the front & rear bumpers ;) - I have stock f & R bumpers if you want to get back to stock look.

I wasn't planning on parting it out. If I change my mind, I'll let you know.

My wife just said you should buy my and part it out! :)
I think you are missing the point.

Your truck with all the extras= X dollars.

Your truck without any extras= the same X dollars.

Your truck without any extras plus whatever you can sell the extras for = Xdollars plus a bunch.

They're not trying to rip you for your stuff, they are telling you what they have learned about selling these trucks.

I paid $9k for this truck,http://darklodge.com/tacoma/4sale/ and there were a lot more mods to it than yours. Frank is right, unless you find the right buyer you'll loose $$$ on some of your mods, or you can swap back to stock and recoup some of your $$.

Toby, if it might help your sale, there is a windshield shop that I have used several times before that will do Taco windshields for about $100 dollars. might help you down the road when you do sell it.
The shop is in Pasadena, I am taking my GF truck there tomorrow to get the windows tinted

I know that it takes the right person to pay more and that I can make more $ by parting it out. As I was looking around this past weekend, I thought about taking the rear bumper, sliders, tires and wheels, etc. and putting them on a new truck (if the person selling would let me.)

Thanks for the advice!
