Chasis Replacement

Can anyone tell me how much it will cost to replace the chasis on my 1984 Land Rover 90 Defender?

Figure 8-12 with labor and parts, variable on how much crap they have to replace.

Can anyone recommend where I can get a chassis new or rebuilt for a decent price in the US?

Defenders Northwest is where I would go for the chassis. You'll have to talk to Brian about replacing it. If he can't do it, he could probably recommend a shop.

The last one we did was in the 12 range, but included all new SS brake lines, SS gas skid,
and most all SS fasteners. Took around 100hrs and would go up with a rusty rig.
Done at Ship's Mechanical in Portland.

A friend is doing the frame swap since 10 months.
Ok, he's only doing during the weekends, but ...

- what about the bulkhead?

Does it need a bulkhead? That will bump the price up if so.

Here is a pic from our last frame swap that took us three days, plus shack down.

Wow. You did the job in three days? Where was this done? Thanks. I do not need a new bulkhead. I just got it up and running today. YAY.

The last one done at the dealership we charged 60 hours. The tech drove it in the shop Monday morning and drove it out Friday evening. That was an insurance job, not a rust repair.

I ordered my last chassis from Brian at Defenders Northwest and they have been amazing to work with.

What state was the 60 hour job in?
Also do you know anything about door regulator parts?

Virginia. That was also a NAS truck that wasn't a rust bucket.

What's the problem with your door?

What doors do you have? I may have some spares for lift up doors hiding in the garage, yours if you need them. PM or email me what you need.
Cheers,
Greg

That a 95 Arles wagon, we billed 75 hours with three man crew over three days. This one was crusty! But we are really happy to breathe life back into such a great truck.

That wasn't a Rumson NJ rig was it? I noticed a local Arles SW get a new chassis a bunch of months ago.

Wow, $12k! I'm subletting the next one. The 4 I did in 2012 were 125-150hrs each, with lots of parts, paint, upgrades.
