I spent some time virtually looking at this Defender down in Dallas . . . Hoosier helped me out by driving it and giving a great review of its condition with his keen eye (Thanks Chris!!) Seems to be in good order.
Anyway, to make a long story short, I wanted to buy it, but decided to stick with the 5 speed instead of going to an automatic (his write-up says it is a 5 speed, but it is indeed an auto).
Aaaanyway, he is looking to sell it before mid-January so he doesn't have to move it up to DC where he is relocating to. I talked him down significantly on his sales price, as he was in a pinch to sell it. Since I can't pull the trigger, I thought someone else might like to.
It seems like a good truck, and a price around $26k, seems like a relatively good deal.
If anyone wants some more info, just let me know. I have the Carfax (thanks George!!) and the review from Hoosier)
