    Sorry you did not like it but if you want to sell I think you are going to take a big loss as a package. If the prices that you list are new you will never get$7500 for it all .First most will not want or need exactly what you have and than they will be going to a dealer that will not want to service it right away (compared to their other customers). You may be lucky to get 5K for it all. I would part it all out and I think you will do better. Take exit 36 on I 77 in NC and I will give you $4000 tomorrow. Cash:)

    Another problem that people will have is they can not finance thru you, They can with a dealer. Good luck and Happy driving
