to sell or not to sell That's the question

I have a '94 d-90 with 128,000 miles in decent shape and I am thinking about selling, I know there has been alot of talk hereabout this subject. I was just wondering if the majority of d-90 owners think the value is going tot continue to increase and if so by how much over the years? or has the value and price ppl are willing to pay for a 20+ year old d-90 has topped out? whattya think??

possibly up for sale is my 1994 yellow defender 90 I am the original owner. I have clear title in hand. within the last year the d-90 has; New heavy duty clutch assembly installed, new tires (all 4), both front seats replaced with new ones, I also have the bench seat for the rear but no seatbelts for the rear seat, 2" lift old Man Emu springs, shocks, and steering stabilzer, all suspention bushings replaced, new galvinized rear crossmember. The truck also has a snorkel, ARB push bar with 8000# warn winch with synthetic rope, Tuffy center consol with an Alpine cd/mp3/usb player connected to marine speakers and 10" powered bazooka tube. I have a set of FULL door with roll up windows (same color), Bimini top, Bikini top, and full stock top and a badger drop curtian (Keeps heat in the front seats), I also relpaced the front floor boards with aluminum diamond plate and re built the boxes under the seats as that is prone to rusting. Plus a box of random stuff who ever buys the d-90 also gets all the extra stuff I can find in my garage that goes with it. I'm sure I forgot some things. I'm only thinking of selling because I don't drive it that much, but I still do a little to keep it lubricated so the milage might slightly change and I want to upgrade to an airplane!! GAME ON

Point to consider, which I am sure you have- you will never be the original owner on a replacement...

My dad sold his beloved '63 corvette split back in 1971 and it has become the family "awwww shit" story we love to tell at holidays. Now - he did sell it for my moms engagement ring. In summary, keep it if you can afford it.

My first recommendation is DUMP YOUR ATTITUDE when someone on eBay makes you an offer, you never know the knowledge of the person making you the offer, so REFRAINING from comments like:

YOU HAVE NO IDEA WHAT THIS TRUCK IS

YOU CAN'T GET ONE FOR THAT AMOUNT

and my favorite I KEEP IT FOR THAT AMOUNT

All those comments don't applied to a well USED defender in a lot less than optimal conditions GL

It's been for sale for 5 months now. It may be time to try a different strategy. Fully detail the truck and either keep it or take better photos of it which give a complete picture of the condition, and either try at the same price point or consider lower. Based on your ads here I'd say more effort is needed on your part in order to get top dollar.

Good luck!

Did the OP ever give a price other than a cut and paste from his ebay ad?

That looks like a pretty rusty 90.
Rear x-member has already been replaced--- due to rust I'm sure.
Some kind of diamond plate floor replacement? Probably due to rust...
And no decent pictures of the rust prone areas....
I think I can spot some bulkhead rust from here!

Sorry, just the way I see it.
