    Looking to sell my truck, but it has a blown engine..
    Tried for months to get a hold of one and have had very bad luck..
    About to the point where I want to sell it without a engine in it..

    It's a all black Dodge Ram 1500 (2005)
    5.7 Hemi
    All leather
    Thunder Road Towing Package
    Has black side steps

    Anyone have an idea for the value of this?
    And the value without a engine?

    Hello Chase, welcome to the forum.
    With the engine would be a lot easier to sell than without. If someone would want to use the old engine for a core then they would have it.
    I would say that the best way to figure the value would be to get in the Kelly blue book and tally it all up as if it had the engine in perfectly good running order, then, find out how much a remanned engine would cost shipped to your town. After all of that, subtract the price of the engine and add a couple of thousand to that price and subtract that total from the KBB value and that should get it just about in the ball park.
    The reason I say to add the couple thousand to the price of the remanned engine is, a lot of people doesn't really want to mess with getting a unit built up so that they can drive it. The couple of thousand just makes it worth their time.
    It does sound like a very nice unit.

    Thank you for the lengthy reply!

    However, KBB doesn't have a lot of the options my truck has and
    on craigslist the prices are a lot different than what KBB says without a few options listed.

    check with KBB for pricing a wehicle that is newer and see how much they allow for the options that Yours has then add those options to the price of Yours.
    Also check on ebay for similar vehicles, if it is the buy it now, put those in Your watch list but pay more attention to those with bidding against them.

    To me, a non running vehicle is worth very little. Better to part it out in my opinion.

    its worth what people are willing to pay for it. Probably less than what you want to sell it for. I would suggest pick an amount and come down on the price weekly until people start to call you with questions.
