I am getting ready to put my Ex Mod 90 on the market in order to move up to a 110. It may be in your price range.

And you may have better luck trading guns (you being a gunsmith) on this forum than your Isuzu. Just a thought.

No reason he cannot find a decent rhd diesel for the value of his vehicross that could be made sufficient to go where he wants with lots of labor and little cost. An old land rover is always broken, but rarely broken down. If you want NAS, forget about it (not only that but you will spend the value of your isuzu in gas going on the trip).

True. -- I reacted quickly. As I thought about it, I'm probably wildly similar to him and would want nothing more than to ditch obligation and make the trek.

Pick me up in Southern California?

How about stepping up to a Disco 1 first hell of a lot cheaper to make the trec. Maybe you can pick up a diesel out of Canada (don't know if they have then floating around). but you can get a 3 inch or 5 inch RTE set up on it.

But... No lift is needed, non-stock parts are not recommended to simplify parts resourcing while en-route, and with a roof rack and tent - being over-height is a cost issue when shipping the truck around the Darien Gap.

Welcome to the board, Chase!

If I were you I would do a fair amount of research first. I would start by speaking to some of the board members who have actually done such a trip.

You're trading in the VX for a 90 to get more space? Have you ridden in a 90?

As with most first buyers you are probably grossly underestimating how much you will spend finding a descent vehicle not to mention the time and effort and cash going into preparing it for an Overland trip.

The VX is perfect (showroom) with 56k miles but I need more space. If you have anything I'd love to see it especially if it is in Alaska. Feel free to call/text/post what you have or ideas on where I can find something. 602 663 1691 my name is Chase

That would be so much fun... In a painful twisted sort of way.

My understanding is that there are no official border posts through the Darien, and thus a non-government sanctioned land crossing has you illegally passing from Panama to Columbia. Of course $$$ can make anything possible.

I can't see how you could go wrong with it. It should be well within your budget, and if you put something like a 200tdi you should be nothing but happy with it (as long as it's not a big pile of rust).

It would definately be nostalgic! The series have leaf spring suspension vs coils, so the ride will be rough. The are also very slow and finding parts might be a challenge.

It's all in good fun. D90's are great but require alot of attention and commitment. I'm sure you'll have fun with yours when you aquire one. This is the fun part, everyone here will lend advice in a purchase.

I just got back from a 15 k trip from Alaska to Mexico and back . I did this in a series 109 with a diesel conversion . I did this in a series and own two defender 90s and a 110. I chose the 109 because it is old school and simple . It worked great and the cost of the rig was less far less than a NAS 90 . A D90 is awful small for such a long trip you really need the safety of being able to sleep inside when you need to. You are welcome to contact me and I can show you defenders and series rigs in person. I can give you a lot reasons not to choose a rover and a few reasons to choose a rover.
I even know of a few 109s and 88s that would be good candidates for you with good frames and bulk heads .

I assume the 69 is the red bug eye?
