thanks Peter, actually already have the carfax and that is all clear.
i was able to get the warranty info on the truck and nothing was out of the ordinary - no big ticket items done. not sure if that is a good thing or bad. what is now worrying me though, is that it has the LT77. the truck has 54k miles on it, and no mention of the trans in the warranty work. here is the link to it and looks like work has all been done at Land Rover Parsippany (Jersey): http://www.autotrader.com/findacar/v...r=&cardist=200
Should the LT77 really affect my decision and should I look elsewhere? This is actually for a really good friend of mine who has no knowledge of Rovers, but is aware of what it will take to own one. I will probably be helping maintain whatever he gets and therefore don't want to screw up and get a money-pit. Thanks guys.
