Daddymow where would I begin to find an ex mod? I took the Bronco of my friends unwilling hands and although fun and holy crap there's alot of accessories I can play with, it doesnt complete me. So without my wife knowing a Landy will just happen to show up on my driveway..

hit post too fast. Which of those series from outside looking in seem better for investment as a build up?

Depends on what you want to do, if the frame and bulkhead on the 2nd one is good then do that one, shouldn't be too hard getting that motor running, but you cant judge a series truck off 3 photos and a Craigslist ad. I wouldn't buy one sight unseen, most of the Craigslist Series I've looked at we're way over priced and scary the amount of rust on them!

Keep in mind that $3000 is more than enough to buy a brand new galvanized Series chassis.

Yeah, keep in mind his own time to put that new frame on the truck and to patch the bulkhead that is likely in need of help as well.

Me personally I wanted and bought a truck with minimal rust to start with, body panels can be fixed and replace later, but a rotting frame and bulkhead is a little more vital to the vehicle operating safely.

Makes me feel lucky that I paid $2500 and got a better truck

Keep looking. I looked for a good 2 years and almost jumped on several POS series trucks (having owned one in high school) that I am sure I would have regretted to this day. Having owned both, I love my Defender. The longer I looked the more money I saved the better truck I was able to purchase.

I bought mine from an Englishman (Ex Pat) that lives in the town Just north of me. He bought 3 at a MoD auction in England an had them shipped over. I am sure there is someone on the board here who can help.
