Copied from the CL ad:
Were you thinking to yourself, " self- I wish I could own an Ultimate off-road vehicle"?
Well, the good news is, you can! This is no garage queen. This is an honest to goodness daily driver utilized to its fullest potential, sometimes at the expense of the Truck.
It is time to let go of the only truck I have ever loved, and loved it I have. I bought the truck when I was 18, and fully utilized its persona of being a nearly indestructible off-road vehicle. It has bee on the trail, and unfortunately on its side, and seen much use. Upon buying a Defender you don't get a car, you get a brotherhood... The car is not for people looking to blend in, it evokes waves and smiles from passers by, and waves and stories from those whom currently own, or once owned, or in most case those who one day hope to own such a vehicle. You may be pondering why, this guy seams to be really attached to this spectacular vehicle, it leaks, it coughs, and it is currently ugly. I will struggle to explain. It's not really about logic as say, buying a Honda, a BMW, or even a Jeep is. Obviously you would not be reading this if you were satisfied with the status quo.
It is the ultimate off-road vehicle, It is a valuable starting point to build the Defender of your dreams.
I just swapped out the Transfer-case with a 75K unit and I have the core that is ready to rebuild and re-install
I have GBR drive-shafts front and rear
Rovertym 3" lift kit
It has AC condenser and and compressor, I don't have the controls... Long story
It red, its a Soft Top-yes all 94's are, and it has the body protection package (hood, fenders, and side sills)
The Heads are warped, the Head gasket is Suspect, the car has 161 K, and it generally tired. I have sourced a 25K 3.9 that came out of vehicle that completed a diesel conversion, I can either pick it up or get you the contact information...
This would be an excellent Diesel candidate.
The heater need a new blower motor.
The Body is rough.
The interior is Ugly and needs to be addressed.
The title is rebuilt, I bought it after a fire in the engine compartment
I uploaded pics in this morning, but rest assured if you are relying on pics to make up your mind, you should more than likely move along, or if you are in east Boulder county or buzz around Evergreen, you have seen me, yes it is *that* one.
P.S. Thanks for flagging!
