Need some input from you guys big time!

Thinking of getting an insurance rider on the rig and wondering what the realistic resale is. Any thoughts? Only been on the trail once as we are still waiting to get a roll cage on it so right now it's in pristine condition.


Up the rocks!

Key pictures!


Here's the list of mods!

1985 Toyota Extra cab frame, shortened about 5 feet and all body mounts raised on the frame 3"
Rear frame rebuilt using all 2" custom-bent tubing
Chevy Vortec 350 V8, 4L80e transmission (with 3.5-to-1 HD dual stator torque converter), in-cab and engine wiring (shortened), PCM computer, and cruise control are all out of 1997 3/4-ton Chevy Suburban with 10,300 miles. All wiring custom-retrofitted specifically back to the '85 Runner chassis dimensions
The steering column and instrument cluster are out of a 1998 Suburban
Atlas II transfer case (35-spline throughout) mated to a custom Ford/Chevy hybrid NP203 low-range gear reduction box for a max t-case gear reduction of 8.6-to-1 in the t-cases!

2 1/2" diameter coil-over race shocks with 16" travel at all 4 corners with remote reservoirs
Triple-rate springs on all 4 coilovers

Front axle: Dana 60 narrowed to 62", with an ARB air locker and 4.56 gearing, 35-spline throughout
Rear axle: Full float GM 14-bolt narrowed to 60" with a Detroit Locker, disc brake conversion and 4.56 gearing
Custom-ordered Dynatrac High-steer steering arms machined for 4 knuckle holes (instead of just 3) and machined to accept non-stock larger 9/16" studs and modified cone washers

ECM has been reprogrammed via Hypertech reprogrammer
K & N air cleaner, custom routed/mounted

Front nose clip completely removed, modified grill, fenders, hood and headlight tubs now attach to the front tube frame, easily removable
43-gallon fuel tank from the 1997 Suburban modified and locked within the custom-tube bent rear frame assembly
Twin Optima batteries mounted center-body under chassis, routed to marine lockable isolator swich inside (mid-cab between seats) in an antitheft housing
HD Flexalite 5/8" tubed oil cooler for tranny cooling duties, mounted mid-cab with built in fan, shroud and adjustable electronic thermostat that controls the fan automatically
Scout steering box (late-model) with custom-bent pitman for max ground clearance
Custom solid-stock chromolloy tie rod and drag link
2 new-style Warn winches (front and rear) in custom mounts, hard mounted and welded in

If a few of you guys wouldn't mind taking a peek and giving me a stab at what you think it's worth, it sure would be appreciate!!!

Thanks,
Scott

P.S. for what it's worth, I have about low 30-thousand into parts and fab materials, not including labor, top grade parts throughout. Thanks in advance for any help you can provide as far as feedback!!!
