haha!...the pool of potential Craigslist buyers is probably a little bigger in So Cal then TN......
FWIW, I also sold the stock 2008+ chrome front bumper and plastic valence panel for $450.....similar deal, Craigslist, the guy had a newer van and the wife ran into something and mangled the front bumper a few days before.
...and I got $300 for the stock tires and wheels (with TPMS sensors).....that was a smoking deal for the buyer.....I had no action on the van carpet so I made the wheel deal contingent on the buyer taking the carpet as well......see JWA's note above.....sometimes it's better to give it away than having to trip over it for the next several years then throw it away.
...as a side note, the van carpet makes a great floor pattern template...

eBay and Craig's List both are good exposure--often times a listing has to be renewed several times before something is sold.
Then sometimes things like rear seats have to be given away if the space they occupy is more important than any money they potentially could bring in.
I view selling the leftover stuff as work.....and you need to be tenacious...
Lots of good, clear, bright, close in pictures of the item......complete, accurate description, promptly answer questions, and relist with lower prices until the item sells......relist tenaciously.......and always list an asking price.
I find it interesting when people tell me they have no luck selling on Craigslist or Ebay......for most things, keep lowering the price until it sells, and consider that what it's worth since that's the market at that time.
The folks that have no luck selling stuff are asking too much money.....they are confused
I've sold around 3000 items on Ebay over the years and several hundred on Craigslist.....did I mention that you need to relist tenaciously?
One more to keep in mind is that this week or next there may be nobody looking for your item, but three weeks from now maybe several..so there is a time factor as well.
