Unhappy I need Help with a SERIOUS decision !!!

I love my 97 D90 absolutel love it, but like most people on this webiste I offroad and beat the shti out of my truck sometimes, therefore it has and was befoe a never ending money pit of FUN!!! ahaha wow i love this car...but honestly im pondering getting rid of it and getting less expensive off-road vehicle (the toyota landcruiser FJ40 has always been a star in my eyes as well as the Bronco 1..both less expensive not only, but also get parts for cheap for both...
god im in a bind, if I could do it Id just keep my beloved 90 (that I expected to keep for the rest of my life) and just buy another one, I could find a cheap one to rebuild for 2grand easily (fj40that is) but wow what a decision I have to make..ive put so much work into my 90 and personalized it so much that Id be giving up a part of my life i feel like..

Ky

thoughts?

Get a D1, they have zero value and you can easily find the parts. they are also easy to modify, and you can keep your 90.

Do not sell. You will be like the rest of us, a couple of weeks of tranquility, no cash thrown towards your Rover, sounds great, then it will hit you. You will then be a slave to the forums until you find another to replace the one piece , that makes you whole. Sounds deep I know , seriously though , you'll wish you hadnt.

Keep it. I agree with icurnmedic, if you sell, you will eventually be back looking for a replacement.

Ok ill be different, save your money you put into a D1 and and continue wheeling the D90 as it was intended and use the money to keep it in good shape. I mean lets face it these arent investments there not status symbols there offroad Vehicals.
