I currently have a 17-55mm dx lens with my old D70s. Obviously, I'm long over-due for a body upgrade.

With the "equity" in my 17-55mm dx, should I sell it and get either a D600 refurbished + 24-85mm (either the old 3.5-4.5 or the new vr, refurbished), or just get a D7000?

IMO, you'd be much better off buying the d7000 and keeping the 17-55, not only financially, but in capability as well.  I may be wrong, but I don't believe that 24-85 is nearly as good a lens as the 17-55. If you were going to go with the 24-70, then that would be a different story, but would also be much more expensive.
