they actually paid me way way way more than i thought they where going to so cant complain.

$26,650 for 2008 with 238k miles - i did not disagree one bit.
paid $18,000 last July

now i do not know what to get kind of thinking about a old dually i can just leave hooked to the goosneck and use when i need to tow, and daily drive a beater gas vehicle.

i do not really need a daily driven 2500/3500 diesel like i was.

My guess is, the d-max could have become your beater. Normally buy back is 1/8 of the payout. 26,650 x .125= $3331.25..

Whatever works!

Glad you had fun. I think it was a success.

And going to Bottom's Up is exactly what the community needs.

Without going back and looking at your build specs, assuming stock LS, auto trans, stock transfer case and decently built one ton axles, if someone just wants to wheel what's there, $6-10K. There are a lot of variables based on the guts of your axles.
