Plus I sold this once - it took me over fifteen years to track it down and buy it back.

Bring it to URE13 and wheel it, we need another white 90 in the mix (there were 7 I think this spring)

Then do what you want and don't listen to anyone but yourself..

Me, I'm wheeling, camping, Daily driving mine till I do something else..

I've wrestled with selling mine. At the end of the day I just don't think I can do it. I'm nearly at 180k on the clock. It had around 70k when I got it back in '03. I have a hard time thinking of it in someone else's driveway.

Mine ended up on the bottom of the assets to sell.... long story but was a topic of discussion.. the LC200 was sold and replaced in a RR.. but that was all need based.
Anyway do what you want

I don't really see wheeling it lowering it's value. Replace what you mess up if you plan on selling it. You'll take it back to stock so at most you'll replace a front fender if you aren't sloppy.

I struggled with this very question just a month or so ago. Decided to keep the 90. And not regretting it one little bit!!

If you want to keep it, keep it. If you want to sell it and buy something else, then do that. Only you can decide (I am betting you will regret it though!).

Been thinking similar bad thoughts. We got the d90 when we both had great jobs, no debt, no kids, and lived off of beans and rice and tequila.

Baught a place 5 months ago. Baby was born 3 months ago and my wife left her job last week. I don't need to sell it but it does feel a little selfish keeping it considering I can't even drive the thing.

But then I realized that if I sold it. I'm not sure that I'd ever be able to justify getting another one.

Besides, I can't wait until my daughter is old enough to enjoy it.

When I sold my 97 NAS ST I regretted it the second I handed over the title. If the choice is feed your family or keep the 90 then it's a no brainer. Short of that you will regret being Defender-less. Trust me, I know.

Scott, the same thoughts of selling go through my head too from time to time. In my case I think driving it daily for 11 years has become mundane and I take it for granted. Maybe you just need to get in and drive. Could you make it more of a daily driver and see if that fixes the urge to sell? Do something new to it and get that spark back dude!

If you think you might want to sell I might have an interest.
