I'd say the truck is worth $11,000 in perfect condition. -$6000 for repairs and dealing with getting it fixed.

Ya the more I think about it and from what I gather from you all I'd be better off fixing it. I guess till I can afford to fix it the truck will sit . Anything else I need to look at replacing while I'm having to do the gaskets? Arp studs, Water pump , t starts , injectors, glow plugs, fuel filter housing . Etc

$621 from Merchant Auto (with headbolts). Thats about the best price you'll see for everything needed, unless you have a discount account with NAPA.

If you are going to let it set before making repairs I would make sure and get all the water out of the cylinders. I let a motor sit one time with bad head gaskets and I should have just sent it to the junk yard when they blew. By the time I got to working on it I had to do a lot of work to clean up the cylinders.
