I agree with the 20K or maybe 18K. Would be nice to see more photos...have someone "check it" for you. Is that rust on the oil filter?

personally, I'd find one with a cage. It is specific to NAS models and extremely expensive and hard to find.

From the pics so far, there doesn't seem to be too much rust. Can you supply pics of the rust prone areas? Rear cross member, door bottoms, bulkhead, under carriage....

If all checks out clean...my guess would be around $20k too...give or take.

Sooner or later every one of these trucks will need to get a complete rebuild...to do it right. Its my belief that the trucks that have been used (mileage), even though well cared for, are encroaching on that rebuild date.

With that said, I like to figure in how long until the truck needs to get rebuilt, and back into the price.

I honestly dont feel there is anything bad about Waxoyl when used sparingly

My observations, some of the rear lenses look to be replace. There is some funny business going on under the front of that truck, looks spraypainted or soimething. It has a new alternator and some aftermarket wires and distributor cap, the horn on the airbox is missing. Get us some more photos, its hard to say at this point. The price is high, you at very least want a badger truck cab top. If I had to have a ST itd be a 95 in this configuration but black with a tan badger cab top. Dr Aaron doesnt sell complete piles of shit. If it was serviced in Durham thats of concern, I bet that is where that blue distributor cap came from.

Didn't Land Rover make the distributor caps black and blue? I know there are blue aftermarket ones that are shit, but I think there were genuine ones that are blue.

More Pictures...

You guys are great, thanks for all the feedback! Here are the rest of the pictures that he sent me. I thought the stuff on the undercarriage was the waxoyl? It does come with a badger half cab (black). He's had the interior tail-gate area rhino lined.

Thanks!

Blue is not a bad thing!

I have a blue cap on my 90. I bought it from AB a few years ago and it's been holding up quite well. The blue ignition wires did not last long (I don't drive my truck much, but was told that the blue kind does not last more than a year. Went with silicon wires and it's been fine since).
