1994 D90 purchase question

There is a 94 d90 for sale locally here in texas. it is white with a new badger top. the truck is in great condition. has air conditioner and stereo. forward facing rear seat. has new 265 bfg mts and warn winch. the truck has 109K miles, and a clean title. the guy wants 24,000 for it. what do you think is a fair price? he has been trying for a while, and i am thinking of offering around 18,000.

You can always offer less, all he can do is say no... Sounds like a nice truck.

Does it have the LT77 or the R380? Has it been in Texas its whole life? Any rust? Any accidents Etc. I would say, if it is nice, 20-16k range would be a good price on it.

I would say 20k would be a very fair price. Miles are a little high but I have always felt a Rover that has been driven is better than one that has been sitting. You might find a better deal out there on ebay but then you get into that sight unseen situation. I would much rather spend a grand or two more for a truck that I could see in person for my peace of mind. That and the truck has a two thousand dollar top on it. Good Luck, Mike

Oh and a grand worth of new tires.

If it runs and everything works, I would say 18k would be a good price and I would agree with mpsteil that up to 20k would be fair. More than that and I think you are overpaying unless it is perfect.

I know a lot of people don't like the LT77. What is the issue there? The LT77 has reverse up to the left and the R380 is down and right... is that correct?

Follow-up Post:

found it in the help section about the transmissions. it seems that there is a slight knocking in the transmission when you shift. you can't feet it, just hear it. is this normal?

Something about the lack of an oiler ring on the mainshaft that causes the splines (not sure if its input or output) on the mainshaft to rust/wear away.

To compare the two trans the best I can describe it is the shifting in the R380 to me felt more like a 5spd jeep or maybe even a Mustang but the LT77 in my 110 felt more like shifiting an older Ford 4spd truck. The R380 to me seemed like it has a shorter thow and a much smoother shift.
