Sell it, part it out or fix it.

Over the past few years I've been putting off fixing the tank.
At this point it's sat for nearly 8 years (mostly in a garage)
The engine is most likely seized
All of the fluids and hoses need to be replaced
The Tires need to be replaced
The engine needs to be rebuild
etc...
I'm pretty sure I'm going to relocate (out of state) and need to figure out what to do with it.

Option 1: try to sell it as is (and or part it out)
Option 2: pay the 15-20K to fix it and then sell it

I don't even know what it's worth.. it's gotta go either way I'm not going to move it with me ...

And for those that don't know the truck... it's this one: 2005 Dodge Ram SRT10 - Custom Racing Truck - Truckin' Magazine

Seems like you've already decided what your going to do. If you know its not coming with you, I'd sell it as is and clean my hands on it. You also seem to understand your not going to get much as it sits with a dead engine, but if the body technically sound along with the trans you should be able to get something good for it, if all it needs is a new engine.

The trans was rebuilt right before it died. The body is in good shape, the interior is in great shape... It only has 24,000 miles on it. Yes it needs to get sold but if it's only worth like $7000, it's probably better to put 15K in to get it running again ... I totally made that number up, I have no idea what it's worth.

Fix it, i doubt it would cost 20k, maybe 10k, probably worth 30k running, blown probably 10k

Yep definitely put a stock trans and engine back in it... Sell all the after market stuff separately.. throw out the junk parts and your good.... the aftermarket parts would pay for the new ( used motor trans) and your golden... Does that run an AEM computer? what mods are on the motor that you can sell off

Would you consider parting it out? How much would you want for the rear brakes and tire setup if you did? I can also forward a set of stock brake calipers
