10th owner? That will scare some people off.

Probably 14k, maybe as much as 17 if you wait for the right buyer.

LOL. Nobody will tuck them away at that kind of mileage. They fall in value every day. It is almost 15 years old! 4 years ago I bought one similar miles for 13K. Would not spend over 10K for one like it now. And it would have to be real nice to pay even that much. They are not real rare. They are not real collectable. They are just nice old trucks that have performance potential.

Let's not bash on the OP. To be honest, I've seen some nasty ass trucks go for way more than a damn $7500-8500. Everyone and there cousins want 12k+ for a 150k mile truck. And guess what? They are selling. At least local to me and my demographics. They are still in my eyes sought after and for the right price, right truck, and right buyer... well it can sell. I sold a 01 two years ago for 12k. Engine had 70k miles and body had 130k. Truck was in great shape. It's all in how you sell it and what it has.

OP: For your truck I would say around $13.5-15k for ME. Clean title? Fantastic that's what a lot of people look for. Other people could pay you a little more if you sell it right. Don't expect anything close on here, guys that know EVERYTHING about these truck lol. If you end up selling it, good luck! Personally, I love the dsg colored lightning and for me it would be a keeper. Good luck in any direction you go.

It's amazing how the area effects cost. That truck is 15+ here, at least

in SoCal it doesn't matter the mileage, Lightnings range from $8K to $28K depending if private party or rinky dink dealer. i sold a gauge to a guy last week and he told me he bought his 03(or 04) L for $30K from a dealer, it was pretty mint as for the paint job as i could tell in the overcast skies, but no way i'd pay that much.
