I vote keep it as long as the rest of it is pretty sound.. Miles are relatively low and it sounds well suited to your needs. An 8 year old V6 (it's manual so I'm guessing work truck model. Cab size?) half ton with a transmission on the way out is going to be a really tough sell in my opinion. I think you'd take a bath on it if you can even find someone to buy it. A bigger truck is probably going to lower your gas mileage as well and it sounds like this is more of a daily driver than a dedicated work truck. For what it's worth I say keep it, especially if you can do the work yourself. I only just got rid of my '01 SCAB V6 F-150 with 193K miles on it.. It was a dog, but a very reliable dog. Make it last!
