Need some pricing help on a truck

I know that I should post this on Dweb, but there are so many jerks there that I find it useless to even visit any longer.

I have had two Defenders (one was a gray market 110 and the other a NAS 90 that I purchased from a member here). Should have kept at least one, kind of getting the hankering for another.

Thinking about selling my Disco but have no clue what it might bring, here are the stats....

1995 120K

Here is what is important
300 TDI with matched Auto Gear Box and Transfer case
3 Inch Rover Tym Springs
New shocks
Qt Services Castor corrected control arms front and rear
Rovertym Rock Sliders
Rovertym front bumper
New Superwinch
Synthetic Line
HD Rear Bumper
GB 4/11 Gears
BGF M/Ts
Front Skid Plate
Dif Guards
300 TDI Steering Wheel
Dog Guard
4 Hella 4000s
Genuine Roof Rack w flooring
CB
Poly Bushes
New Paint (Color Change from black to Yellow)
Water Proof Seat Covers
New CD w XM
Mantec Raised Air Intake
Full Recovery Points

and the list goes on I'm sure I am missing some things.

Can't get all the money back out, but what is it worth?

I'm thinking 12-14k, simply because 95 Discos are cheap, and your price ceiling will be based on the depth of the enthusiast pocket book. Theres of course always the point that removing some accessories like the rack and selling separately will produce a higher return than letting them go with the truck.

I am thinking along the same lines. The engine and accessories are worth a bit and then some. Hard to beleive that over three discos I have invested that much. Generally I drive them until I get bored and then buy another one and swap the parts. It's nice as I have two junkers left to rob parts from. I am gerneraly never down more than a day or so.

Thanks for the input.

Out of town for the weekend but I will get some posted up ASAP. NOt sure what I am going to do with this truck.

A few have asked who did the conversion. It was a local LR tech that did the job in my shop with a huge help from a member of this board, who I still owe many beers to. The guy did a great job for the most part except my flax plate came apart after 300 miles. I dropped the tranny checked everything and replaced all the rear parts with genuine parts.

I am now on my 10th tank of fuel and she runs great. AC is cold, 325 per tank full all day long.

What does not work

Rear Defroster
Rear Door does not turn on the interior lights

I have been so busy that I have not had time to mess with the little stuff.

Ok here are the images. After some deep thought I don't think I can part with her. I have 99% of the stuff to build a Hi Cap PU, might as well do that and just drive the Disco until the wheels fall off. Not like I would get even close to the cash back out of it that I have put in.
