Keep all three, weather the storm and wait to see how hard it really is before giving in. Don't get rid of the 130, they are just plain bad ass.

Love the 130. Like everyone else has said, its totally badass and you dont exactly see them around much. Sounds like you arent particularly attached to one over another, and could just as easily get rid of any of them, so why not see which one brings you the most money? Put them up for bidding on Ebay with high reserves and see who bites. Whats the worst that could happen? If you luck out, sell both and have a boatload of money in your pocket, you can build another. Plenty of people out there (and some on this board) who would love to throw money at you for one of those trucks Im sure. Just my 2c. I would keep the 130 though.

Definitely keep your first one and wheel it. Between the 130 and the Xtech, I'd keep the 130.

Just curious, but since they were professionally restored for you, don't you stand to loose money on each of them? Typical return on investment with higher end builds tend to be more for personal reasons/attachment than monetary gain. If you are anything like me you will have trouble giving up any one of the vehicles, its the Land Rover hoarder in all of us.

I don't think he's like you. Money is not an issue for this guy. It's driveway space. It's clear that if he wants another truck he just makes a call.

I have a similar problem with my aircraft... should I sell the G5, the citation X, or the midnight blue T-38? man what a conundrum.

all kidding aside, I just can't get by the aesthetics of the x-tech. purge it...

That reminds me of something my lacrosse coach used to say when I was at Yale.

I know. It's a high quality problem.

In all seriousness, I kind of fell into having the three. Started out looking at a NAS 110 vs. buying or having a ROW 110 built. Ended up deciding to have a 110 built but deal fell apart over timeframe. So I bought the 110 200TDi as an interim rig while I decided what to do. Saw the new XTech style and liked it a lot (even with the SVX lights and grill, I know, no accounting for some people's tastes) so decided to have one built out (a very long story). In the meantime, I found the 130 at too good a price to pass on and it was close to Mike at RiverHouse so I figured I would see what could be done.

By the way, get rid of the Citation X. G5 has better range and the T-38 is a rare bird.

So there you have it? Please take the poll and let me know which one you would sell!
And I think we spoke about why...
