I agree with you that the SG stuff is 'pretty', but there's other fabricators and ways of doing things that are better and cheaper...

take a look at Buckon37s truck ... its going to be a sweet rig with similiar (better?) capabilities for less bank.

here's what you do ....buy my D90 that i'm returning to stock .. for ~$15k ... then take the other $50k & the truck & drop them off at any one of the good custom fabricators around Colorado & you'll end up with an amazing off-roader that has a 4.6 (or 5.2L if you give it to keith), a set of ProRock 60 axles with 5.13 gears, coilovers, & more accessories than you can shake a stick at. heck, you could even throw in an Atlas II t-case ..... of course, there may not be any $$$ left for those bling-bling $1000 lights

granted, Greg has spent ~$100k on that thing & for someone $65k may be a good deal.

Man, Troy beat me to it He said everything I was going to. SG is definently sparkly and pretty but you are still left with major axle issues. I spent less than half of that price on mine including the buy price and the 300Tdi. I figure if it doesn't adaquately bling I can chrome the roll cage yeah right!

Last year I thought he had it listed for $80K...

A lot of work has gone into that D90 of theirs. I can fully appreciate how much time and $$ Greg has devoted to that rig but highly modified rigs that are actually used, dont move for that kind of price which I would think is why you are not seeing it listed on the Rover sites. Look at the really modified rigs that have been showing up on eBay the past few months. There have been some sweet rigs that never sold even in the mid-20's.

I just hope that whoever buys it, wheels with it. I am sick of seeing the nice D90s that have been selling recently, never be heard from again or stipped down.

i agree use it for em what they was built for however IMHO 65k is a little expensive for something that has been beat up off road. in my semi educated about is what in the souped up D90 world you could build a comprable truck for less. When it all comes down to the bottom line give me a toyota truck with spools marlin case big ol SPOA SAS lift mud grips and a substantial driveline i could hang with that D90 for a fraction of the cost, and still have a D-90. to each thier own. No doubt teh $ Gard is a bad ass truck and I am not hating on anything, its all about bang for the $$

This Defender (http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...tem=2440325770) appears to have everything that SG's has and it didn't even come close to selling at $24,000 on ebay, It does have a salvage title. I'd like to sell my white 94, but I'm worried that my salvage title scares to many people away. How does the title lower the value in your opinions?

if you go by edmund's, the price of the vehicle will lowered by the amount that it would cost to return it to excellent condition.

i ran into this with mine. carfax didn't catch the salvage title that had been issued at one point on the used 90 i bought. the title that came with the truck when i bought it was 'clean'. then when i listed it on ebay, ebay's VIN service (can't remember who it is ... not CARFAX), flagged it as salvage. i tried to take things up with CARFAX to no avail.

They screwed me on a Honda of mine, too. It got flagged with an odometer rollback .... while I was the owner of the car!!! Evidently, when I moved from NC to CO, CO DMV records what the mileage was when you BOUGHT the car, not the mileage that is actually on the car. So, even though, the Honda had a legit 112k miles on the odometer, CARFAX says that when it got titled in CO the mileage was 22k and flagged it as a rollback!!!

sorry, i'll get off my CARFAX soapbox ..... then you're just limited by the buyer. chances are someone looking for a perfect truck isn't going near anything that's ever been listed as salvage. Personally, I'd be the same way. My only exception to that would be a Defender since I know them well & know what to look for.

My 'clear'-titled, but once salvage 90 is going back on the market sometime in the next few weeks & I'm attempting to price it according to condition, but add a few extras like a Badger top, etc..... & still keep the price near 'rough' condition price as defined by Edmund's. Its just the price you pay for salvage titles (pun intended ... )

15,000 seems very reasonable, even a little low for your truck. Are you having trouble selling it troy?

actually, it hasn't been for sale since September. I had it up for 3 or 4 weeks & then started parting things out. I had a couple of offers, but nothing that really excited me ..... although, i did get an offer for a straight up trade for a single seat comp buggy based on a toyota with a Marlin turbo case, custom Mog axles (front and rear steer), competition compound 37" or 40" krawlers, coilovers, etc. .... + trailer (see pic) that I almost went for.

so, the $14-15k (whatever it comes out to) will get you a mechanically sound wheeled 90 with 65k miles, Mastercrafts, Badger top, Bill Burke sliders, & a couple of other odds and ends ... not the 37" beadlocked, lifted, locked-up 'fun' truck that once was

That buggy was pretty sweet. I might have done that! Good luck. If I had the dough I would buy it from you! That is a good price.

Nice. Think he would trade for my Disco? LOL

Are there more pics of it on P4x4?

To compress the front end so that you have a lower COG in off camber circumstances.
