Thanks Chip, that one looks good from the limited pictures but at the moment that's a little more than I want to spend at this time.

February bump

Green and red are top color choices.

This will be my daily driver.

Within 500 miles of Boston would be ideal.

Thanks

As the others have said, with the ease of uship, you should look nationwide especially to areas with less salt and rust. With gas at a low, the cross country trips are quite reasonable.

My recent hauls and costs:
Boston to Lousianna - $850
Denver to Boston - $1000
Seattle to Raleigh - $1200
Boston to NJ - $350
Florida to Boston - $350 (opposite of direction of current demand)

In your price range, you will not find a true north eastern truck in the condition that you want. Maybe a transplant from out west that was moved here in the last year or two will pop up. Salt salt salt.

Let's get this back to the top of the wanted section.

Some flexibility in my budget for the right one capable of being a daily driver since that's what it'll end up being.
Also interested in SWs, particularly in Coniston.

Let me know if you're thinking about selling.

Open to flying out to take a look and having it shipped back or even doing a road trip particularly now that the weather is nicer.

I recommend the road trip. Great way to learn the character of your defender.

We drove ours from Philly to Knoxville Tennessee via DC and Boone NC. Made a long weekend of it and took our time.

If you do that, get it checked out first. Make sure you're belts, brakes, and fluids are good.

Keep up the search!

It looks like it may have been in a rear-end collision. The step bumper was probably damaged so removed. The rear tire is slanted with the bottom closer to the truck so the carrier is bent. And the tabs on the crossmember have been painted so it's had paint work. That diamond plating was probably added because it looks gnarly underneath.

It was a NJ truck for most of its life. I've seen it in the past, and it needs help. Devin would call that a new crossmember, but I'd call it BS. Maybe for $30k (maybe), not for $45k or the $65k he was looking for a few weeks back.

Thanks for the heads up guys.
I don't think it meets enough of my personal requirements.

Definitely still looking for a truck. Expanded to a nationwide search. Auto would make things easier but a manual is also appealing. I'm 50/50 regarding SW/ST, both have there positive points and absolutely open to both.

Ideally I'd like a truck I could attempt to use as a DD. If it doesn't work out as a DD, due either to concerns over maintaining the condition or comfort (heat in New England winter), I'd likely pick up a beater pickup for Nov-April.

pics of interior cross member

Was delivering a different truck today and thought I would take a few pics of the inside of the cross member of the D90. Solid throughout. Not sure why it would be a '$30k truck' or what 'help' it needs because the cross member is plated.

josh, maybe you should shed some more light here on what else my truck needs since you are apparently so familiar with it? I don't remember claiming the cross member to be new either. Maybe you can shed some light there too. That would be great.

I'm also more than happy to provide the results of the end to end inspection of the truck performed by a master land rover tech where it needed nothing other than a bulb and was one of the more mechanically and structurally sound trucks they've seen.

Can't tell everything from those pics but in general: No one is going to pay your asking price for a truck with the following: Diamond plate hood - not even the normal style. Is that home made? Diamond plate on rear crossmember. Also looks homemade. Body paint on crossmember tabs. Sign of a paint job where no attention to detail was taken. Accident on the carfax These are just the obvious things wrong with the truck without even diving too deep. It's just not a 50k truck by any stretch of the imagination.

If you are going to use it as a DD in the Northeast during winter, I suggest you get one with at least a galvanized frame. Or, you can put it in a garage for most of the winter, except for nice days--highly recommended.

I have seen a few Defender frames turn to swiss cheese after two winters of driving on salted roads--the rear cross member issue on many Defenders is from salt spray. Some places are now pretreating with brine solution before a storm--I can only imagine what that does to any car, but especially a hollow box frame Land Rover.

Realistically I'm looking for one of two types of defenders
1) a very good condition truck (SW or ST) that will serve me well in the summer and fringe and I'll grab a winter driver

Or

2) a soft top for the summer and keep my Tacoma for winter and for inclement weather.
