Smile D110 needed

Good friend is looking to purchase a clean (no rust) 110. Does not have to be NAS spec. Not trying to exceed 70k. Any help is appreciated. Looking to do so in the next 2 months. If it is NAS it needs to have been updated (cooling system, engine, etc.) Not looking for a project vehilce, more of a daily driver. Must have jump or bench seats in the rear. No color specified. Very serious.

AC system. Never been offroad but high miles(150k). Very stock except for the auto conversion. I might throw it on ebay soon with a reserve in the low 40's.

What does this mean
If it is NAS it needs to have been updated (cooling system, engine, etc.)

Do you mean AC?

I think he was talking 70k for mileage - otherwise mine is for sale too!

Smile Update

What I meant with the comment of updated parts is that we need it to be reliable. The NAS trucks are starting to get dated. I would like it to have a few updated items. I do not want to put my friend and wifes employer into something that will be in the shop alot and trying to find pieces that are no longer avail. He is interested in the fully restored vehicles like ECR does but not interested in 100k right now. He has 4 kids and a step son. Looking for quality. Not a project vehicle. This will be his daily driver. This is for one of the top surgeons in our area. I work @ a LR dealer and will be servicing it. I know from experience that alot of the one off parts for the NAS 110 are NLA. Definately understand everyones input and is appreciated. Sure is fun getting to shop for a 110. Will keep everyone informed. Cheers.

mmh, so if I am reading this correctly, you did mean $70K price. I recommend setting the budget around $45K and putting $25K into the repair fund. Service/maintenance problem solved for at least a few years

Do you think a $20K to $25K budget for repairs and upgrades at ECR is enough on a D90 or D110? Or it depends on someone's wants and/or needs?

Based on what John said I was thinking purely on upkeep at a dealership, not upgrades (and certainly not ECR quality upgrades no).

Does a $45K 110 really need upgrades if stock and it's going to be a daily driver/mall cruiser? I'm no expect but I say no (or at least there are ones out there).

Just don't expect to find a 45k truck that doesn't need work. As I have been told and have experienced, there are no deals with land rovers. No matter what they are going to need work and they are not new cars. There is always something.

Tell them to go buy a 4 door Wrangler. Have they ever driven a 110 before? I have owner two 110's and two 90's and they are not meant to be a daily driver unless you really like that truck feel with no power options,loud road noise, really bad gas mileage,always something breaking,rust, and water leaks.

There is no way to say.
I have 110s and 90s come in that are cherry and need nothing other than routine service.
Then others come in that are nightmares that need tons of repairs to get back into shape. Until you see and go over the individual truck you will never know.
There is no "general rule". A $50K 110 parked next to another $50K 110 will yield a drastically different set of needs and repair bills. One may need little (or nothing) and one may be your worst nightmare even though it is the same model, same year, same miles and same price.
It all depends on each truck, its prior care, etc etc.

If a customer just wants repairs and they have a nice truck the bill will be small.
If they bought a rat wago and want it cherry with every updated known to man... its gonna be a small fortune.

The advice I can give you is that it is cheaper to spend more up front and buy a better truck. It costs more to repair a truck than it does to buy one. Getting into a "cheap worn out" 90 or 110 is never going to end up being "cheap" once you fix everything. That can work for guys who plan to do it all themselves, but not for the guy that it sounds like you are buying for.

We have a very nice mid miles 110, very clean, needs some thing, but not the typical truck. It is not fully updated with new AC and all, but very nice, and not 100K.

Unless it is an ECR built 90 or 110.

Agreed, but the ergonomics(did I spell that right?) suck no matter what you do.(compared to a new vehicle)

Doesn't have to be an ECR 90, just one that isn't shagged will make most people happy.
