Very very very few people are going to be willing to pay over $3K for a 1st gen Durango, that is the simple truth. They are terrible on gas and a V8 must cost a bundle to insure over there.

1. Don't try and charge for your labor. This truck was a labor of love, not a labor for profit.
2. Start high but be prepared to go lower.

It is impossible for use in North America to give you a value over there. You might see $5K Canadian here in Ontario but again, even here the market would be very very small and it would take a very long time to sell.

You did an amazing job, you should just drive it.

so slowly it comes to the end

at the holder for the plastic bumper in the back I had to "model" it does not exist to buy in DE, one sees nothing of it, but I have trozdem trouble and he was also coated with Raptor
Now the interior, but there is really only cleaning announced and reinstall panels

Then a new AHK box, antenna, Radeinhausungen, loader ramp cover, bumper holder and a few more details
Headlights are also new (complete with turn signal)

the rear bumper is just on-hook for the photo and not yet attached and aligned.

Are you going to put the wheel well liners back in? Those can make a significant difference with engine bay temps.

I just wanted to suck the Durango, but once it's your turn
I dismantled the entire interior.
The interior floor is now also painted.
Carpet I cleaned with high-pressure cleaner ....... is not everything out but 10x better than before)
The seats are padded up again and the base frame gets paint, too frightening that in US car's no rust protection on many parts
