Introspective Rover Moments

Fellow Rover enthusiast:

deepest apologies for you engine problems, now take a deep breadth and ask your self this what would you replace this with?

if the engine were okay would You keep this Rig or would you keep this Rig for a very very very long time.

my 2 cents...back in 2000 I sold my 1995 D-90 SW wagon, it was so Highly modified, for 24k.and you know what I bought a 1999 Toyota Tacoma Access Cab Pre-Runner......WORST MISTAKE of my adult life....:f acepalm: every Rover driver has that moment of Damn...What now....but like any relationship Rover ownership has it's ups and downs.....

10 years from now, it happens very fast....trust me...if you can save this Rig, if You really like the Rig. You will have remembered that moment you decided to keep on keepin on.

Ultimately Totally Your choice, perhaps get a beater for daily transport and replace engine...

Yep. I concur. All too often I hear people talk about their first Harley or Rover or muscle car and hear them say "darn, I wish I had not gotten rid of that *****."
They are always full of regret.
My grandfather regretted selling his Porsche. And I regret it too. It would be in my livery.
Still have my first Harley though.

You can probably sell the tranny and get at least $150 in scrap for the rest if you didn't feel like dealing with parting it out.

Although, you still haven't said what is wrong with your engine.

I would fully support you swapping everything over to your D1, but if you say you're going to buy a Toyota I'm going to slap you in the face.
DON'T DO IT!!! I know your in the pits right now, but you will no doubt regret selling such a rig....I would buy a fair bit of your stuff if you can't get your head around fixing her, but give yourself some time and work it out

Zack,

You've got lots of support here that can get this rig back moving again in the right direction. I would always give more for a great rig that has a blown motor, than a rust bucket that has great equipment and drivetrain. Much easier to sort out.

Haha thanks for the support guys, it is appreciated and I assure you this is just a feeler.

To those worried about brand loyalty, rest assured I will not jumping brands any time in the future. I can't wait to finish the d1 and get it on the road.


I'll never own a jeep!

Don't sell/part it.. you'll regret it. My last D2, I changed the engine twice, and after doing the last one, I decided to sell it just because I was sick of dealing with it and didn't want the potential of putting a new engine in. Almost 2 years later, the guy I sold it to is wheeling the hell out of it and loving it. I definitely regret selling it. So much so, that I recently bought a 2003 with a bad engine to fix and build another wheeler.

Another thing -- after you sell it, and then decide to buy another down the road, you get sick to your stomach thinking of paying the same prices for the accessories again...

At the very least keep the lockers. You'll wish you had them in your D1.
