  1. Visit the website
  2. Kelley Blue Book's website opens to display "Get Your Blue Book Value."

  5. Select the options
  6. On the next page, select the engine size and transmission type along with any other options the vehicle may have. Available options include power steering, dual air bags, power seats and DVD system. Some of the options are already checked, so uncheck them as necessary. Choose the exterior color of the truck and click "See Blue Book Value."

  7. Select sell or trade
  8. The value of a truck may change based on what the seller wants to do with it. Select either "Trade in to a dealer" or "Sell to a private party."
