Default 06 Trailblazer w/ LQ9 6.o

I have a 06 Trailblazer 4x4, it shows around 165k on the odometer, I swapped a LQ9 6.0 in this spring with around 70K on it. The truck originally came with the 5.3 and a lifter took a shit so I was just going to freshen it up and put in non DOD cam and lifters but it was cheaper to just swap the 6.0 in instead. I put new control arms,ball joints and wheelbearing assembly on the pass side with both new tierods, Also the the 4wd actuator on the front axle was replaced. The truck is not perfect,it was in some type of accident but it does not affect the driving just that who ever painted it did a shitty job and it needs a good cleaning. There is an exhaust leak between the y pipe and muffler, I gutted the cats and the rear O2 sensors were disabled when the tuning was done. I was planning on doing headers and dual exhaust as well as repainting and customizing it a bit. It does need new swaybar end links and shocks as its a bit spongy with the heavier motor,I was gonna lift it with bigger tires,which the tires on it now are in good shape. The truck is perfectly drivable the way it is, my wife drives it daily. I don't want to screw with the whole working back and forth on the price so my bottom dollar is $4500, we would consider a nice DD car as trade.Text me with questions 231-645-5787,Tim Thank you

BTT, when I go home this time I'll put the new swaybar links and shocks on and attempt to fix the exhaust leak, or if anybody is interested the way it sets, Ill take $4000. The accident I mentioned up top, I don't know how serious it could have been, I was told it was a shopping cart was drug down the passenger side but, I think it was more than that, it doesn't affect the driving or tire wear though. The paint on that side doesn't match perfect and the clearcoat is peeling on the passenger door.
