Yep. $24,500.

All equipment stays. Winch, rack, lights, stowage boxes in the back, etc. This should be great fuel to this thread and the "Modify a low miles truck.." thread. Although mine is not low miles (98K) it is slightly modified. That's mostly why I'm selling. I want my rover to look like a ROW rover, not a NAS. Plus, it'd be nice to bring my family out once in a while My jumpseats came out a while ago to make room for the gear (although they're still in my basement). Hence, the 110. Yes, I'll probably miss the 90, but by then I will be able to pick up a ROW for about half the cost and be able to mod it sensless without destroying the NASness.

Sorry JimC, I know this is breaking a few rules. I won't hi-jack this thread with a for sale ad any longer.

steinhnj - that is a very realistic price for your D90. You will definately have alot of interest in your rig.

The low mileage, "virgin" D90's will fetch what they are asking for, if the seller is willing to wait (sometimes years) for the "collector" type of buyer. There aren't many of these around
I feel sad for those D90s, they will probably never see anything more than a gravel driveway.

The rest of the "non virgin" Defenders will sit on the market or will never meet the reserve price" if the seller isn't realistic with the their asking price. (Insert economics 101 theory comments here)

I was in the market for a D90 for a couple months, scoping out ebay, craigslist, auto trader, cars.com, LRX and here. I finally got what I wanted on ebay after bidding on at least 6. Most of my bids did not meet the reserve, and in almost every case, the Defender never met reserve when time expired. No sale.
I won mine because the seller was realistic with the reserve and no one out bid me.

I know that mine will never fetch $60K if I ever wanted to sell it and I am thankful for that.
I can now relax and enjoy it for what it was intended for

Some hard earned advice. Don't buy a truck that has sat. I spent way to much money repairing seals and getting the truck to settle down.

Just find a truck that has been driven.

Agreed. I am slowly replacing every seal on my '95 that sat without being driven much for the last five or so years. As soon as I started driving it - leaks from everywhere. It's not an issue for me since I would have wanted to do these things anyway by this age...but after buying two Defenders (this one sat...the other was one of those Copley "ultra ultra ultra" low mileage ones). I'd rather have one that has 100K that was driven at least a few times a week.

I bought what many on here would consider a beater D90 not too long ago. I personally prefer it, because I don't feel bad about performing any of the mods I would like to make to it, knowing that this truck will never be worth restoring to stock.

Funny thing is, with a little work, sorting some wiring, but mostly cleaning and replacing some hardware I've turned it into a fairly clean looking daily driver D90.

If you have any mechanical abilities and fabrication skills and aren't stuck on keeping everything "Rover" these are super easy trucks to own and keep up.

X4, the best 90 I have ever seen was the one I sold to Gary on the board here. It had 100k on it and just in my opinion was perfect. A Rover is made to be driven not sat. I drive my 110 at least twice a week now because the more I drive it the better it goes.
