Tried to get a response out of fireside chat gave up.
I'm interested in seeing opinions before doing a post on the for sale side.
I live in Juneau, AK own a 06 SLT Cummins long bed 2500 4x4 automatic wind up windows and no electric seats with 50,000 miles(kept this truck simple as Alaska and electric windows can be a bad mix in cold weather) . We used to travel to Montana for pheasant season but ferry costs have increased so much we stopped in 2013. After this we get 2-3000 miles per year on the truck. It isn't being used for what it's intended for.
Is there a market for the truck?
I've checked KBB, NADA & Edmonds so I've got the pricing range.
Again I'm just asking questions before I decide to post it here.

That truck is the going to sell very well and very quick! Which cab? I have a 06 regular cab I bought in 08 for a great price during the height of the recession. Most people want the larger cabs, but I see that generation of truck selling, on dealer lots, for the same or close to what I paid. And those all have alot more miles than yours!

Look at what people are paying for a new cummins truck that has alot more stuff to go wrong on it, and if yours is in good shape with those low miles I woulnt hesitate to put a large starting price on it. I wouldnt give much weight to bluebook for that truck.

Whats the bluebook stating. I dont see the lack of features as a huge negative, but the current location is the biggest issue for your prospective market. Although the ferry ride from Juneau to Bellingham is beautiful in winter, and alot less crowded!

If I had that truck in Oregon, Id think about an ebay or other auction. I dont think $30k plus is unreal, but perhaps Im blinded by my preference for the 5.9 pre-def trucks.

Ive been searching for a similar 4500, but low mileage of that generation dont exist anymore.

Good luck

It'll sell quickly. A qclb is a great configuration and always in demand especially the guys with cabovers. Based on your specs I'd say $25-30K. I would think a Cummins up there would be snatched up. 30% fewer parts and no glowplugs is a plus.
The 5.9's in great shape bring in some money.

I would be shocked if you garnered more than 20k for it. It’s a base truck that’s 12-13 years old depending on manufacturing date.

I’d say 15-18 would be a vary reasonable asking price.
