Long Shot... 110 Diesel Hi-Cap PICKUP

Greetings D90'ists...

The time has come to 'park' my D-90 and get a secondary vehicle. Mostly because I want to keep mine forever, I know people say that but I'm dead serious. Second because it's getting beat up with my side business real estate rental 'gig', and third because I just need to get another vehicle and stop driving my D-90 everyday.

In any case, I have a chance to get my hands on some true BioDiesel which won't cost me but maybe 1/3 of current diesel prices and a little bit o' easy work.

My problem: I need to get a pickup truck, I'd love to get another D-90 but the truth is I NEED a pickup truck. And I NEED a diesel. I've literally been losing sleep with the thought of having to buy a FORD F-250 Powerstroke... just not a Ford guy. And definitely not a Chevy or Dodge guy at that.

So, I'm just throwing this out there because you guys are 'the source' for anything Defender... If you happen to come across a nice or semi-nice Defender Pickup with a Diesel please let me know. I really don't need a huge pickup, just a pickup. If I can't find a Defender Pickup I'm probably going to scrap the idea of a diesel and go get a Tacoma to tool around in... Honestly the F-250 is just too freakin' big for me and I don't like Ford's... Hope this makes sense.

Oh, and I'd even go for a Series Diesel Pickup if I could find a decent one...


Anyway, Thanks... Been real busy lately and haven't been on to say Hello.

I'll build you one. Got a couple MOD D110 trucks hid out. Will require some creative registration though.

Nothing too creative, buy a crap 90 (easier said than done) and replace parts. You need a chassis, some cab parts and the pickup bed. Most of which are alot cheaper than SW bodies. Either drop a diesel in immediately or run it as gas until you want to spend the $$$.

Pendleton,
What's shakin' ? Yes, I'd love to have you build me one but I can't wait for it, I have to secure/drive something within the next two/few weeks and it has to have some sort of title.

JimC,
Great idea, I've had that one for a while but I just can't wait on it. I need to get a diesel pickup soon, or a pickup for that matter.

Motap,
I did contact the 'Cain' guy, who has the 2000 110 pickup, it's decent, not a Hi-Cap though!! BUT, it's in Europe right now and he says that it will have a clear Nebraska title on it in a few weeks when he gets it. I like it but it has no A/C which is ok, and he's got it for $27k and he would come down to $24k at the moment.

I also read that SkyTopRover.com can get anything titled that's a pre-1995.

You'll all have to forgive me, I haven't been scurrying the D-90 Source like I've been known to so I'm a little out of it. Lots has happend, got married, got crazier, bought a fat house that we're closing on in 12 days... and more.

Looks pretty good. He gave me a pic or two. Lemme see if I remember how to attach pics.


Thanks,

Nicholas

If you have a choice of Land Rover diesel engines, you might want to steer more towards the turbo-charged engines.

I have a 2.5L NA in my Series truck. It's a great engine that lasts forever but I know every single hill in the area intimately. The 200 TDi, 300TDi or 2.8 GVT (sp?) is the progression of descendants of the same engine, all of which are turbo charged. That turbo adds significantly to the go-ability.

Converting a NADA Defender to diesel is easier than you might think. Just make sure you find someone to do a qaulity job and be sure to use xyzR9 fuel lines for the biodiesel. All the other lines will melt over time.

Seems nice, whatever it looks like but I first and foremost need a DIESEL.

I live in Tallahassee where there is no LR anything, let alone Defender but me. I simply don't have the time to worry about shipping, installation, etc. I need to get something soon.

Literally...

We'll see what happens.

Thanks though fella's.

Hey Jack that's sweet...

You started from scratch ? How'd you title it ?

For Sale ?

Elaborate if you can, point me in the right direction, or if you know anyone that's got one completed...

What do you think of the one I posted ?


THANKS

Nicholas Orros

HEY CHRIS... I missed your Hello. Yes, I've been busy as a 4-handed whore, literally. It's all good though, I finally got a fat garage to work on the Defender !

Honestly, I think your best bet is to go with Pendy. If you want a turn key solution and not a long project, he will build you what you want. He probably has the same square one I have and he can bang out the rest of it, including a much more powerful engine. Keep it very simple in terms of interior and accessories and you'll achieve good results.

He's already got the vehicle in. That's the hard part. Once it's here and assembled titling isn't such a struggle although it varies from state to state. You're essentially creating an "assembled vehicle".

I've seen Pendy's motor swap work first hand it looks very solid. I'm sure he can build up / restore a truck for you at a reasonably fair price and in a basic timeframe.

The nice thing about the Canadian MODs is they look like shit, but it seems like all of the drivetrain is overhauled constantly. My truck had riveted tags on the tranny, motor, tcase and diffs from the last rebuilds. All of them were very recent.

just keep your pants on for a little while, suffer the D90 as a DD or buy some POS Ford truck diesel and sell it once your 110 is ready.

Good luck with your search.

Out of shear curiousity, will the Grocery Getter make it out the car-hole without decapitating the snorkel? Looks like a close call from the pics Jack.

By the way, the piant job looks pretty good......from afar. Just don't show anyone the foot well.

No the mushroom top has to come off for the truck to make it's debut from the garage.

Footwell has been fixed.
You're very clever.

[ I know this doesn't have much to do with the direction this thread has taken but I feel obliged to correct my post about the biodiesel fuel lines. My apologies if this is slightly less than kosher. ]

Addendum to my post about fuel lines -- the type of hose is SAE 30R9 that will best withstand biodiesel. 30R7 decays after a fairly short amount of time.

Source is a friend of mine with a heavy science background who brews his own biodiesel and has experienced high end hoses deteriorate with the use of biodiesel.

Jack,

Your 110 has come a long way since I last saw it.
Congratulations. It is looking really good.
If you need any parts, let me know. I have a lot of parts that I took off my 110 that are just sitting under the house.

Jack,

I hear what you're saying... I've spoken to Pendleton in the past when I wanted to throw a 2.8 tgv in my D90. I'll give him a ring and see what he says, I know he moved but is his # 316-210-something still ?
If not, can you send it to me, or I can just email him. Is he at the 'big rally' this week ?


DJ,

Long time eh... I see you're still 'lurking'...


Thanks a bunch fella's.

Nicholas Orros

Got one question though:

How am I going to TITLE it in Florida ??

From Ferris key phase to Avogadros' "choice" number.

That aside, your 110 is looking great. I assume you hashed out your issues with the Grand-Master of paint?

I'm interested to see what you do with the space behind the jump seats. Anything on the horizon?

LURKING! How dare you Orros.

Actually, I was just looking at those pics you sent me of your roof tent. I was deciding on whether I should sell my roof rack or keep it and pick up a tent. I decided to forego the roof tent and wait a year or so and snag a 110 as my family is about to get a little bigger. Although at risk of being a lemming, Jacks project appears more and more appealing all the time.

Don't work too hard Nick.
