Thanks for the feedback Scott. What is mismatched regarding the diamond plating?
I donít know enough technically to describe exactly what Iím looking for so Iíll be somewhat generic. Iím looking for a clean, well equipped 94 or 95 ST. The white Defender on ebay had everything I like- Snorkel, limb risers, lift kit, winch, larger than stock tires (but not a mini monster truck), bench seat, rock sliders, AC, storage, etc. I live in Denver so I need a good heater & top (Badger/rain gutters?) & AC would be nice but not a deal breaker. Iíd rather buy a truck already set up, but my main concerns are rust free and mechanically sound. I prefer white or black. I know this sounds picky but I can wait for the right rig if itís not out there now. I really liked the white ebay one, but not for $35K.
Not sure why the Craigís list link didnít work. Here is the description:
1995 Land Rover Defender ST - $20K
I have owned a lot of 4x4ís and this is by far has been the most enjoyable and capable to drive. Unfortunately, with larger family, have out grown.
Trans: 5-spd Manual
Tops: Full Bestop Softtop, Bikini & Fiberglass Hardtop
Other: Rear Bench, ARB Front Bumper, Rock Sliders, Hella Driving Lights
Condition: Very Good
I test drove it and it is clean and 100% rust free. The more I look on line, the more I think this might be a good deal. Iíd love to hear anyone elseís thoughts & suggestions on what to look for / what questions to ask.
What is your opinion on Rugbiersí black 95 that is for sale (10/8 post)?
How about the white 94 posted on 10/11 for $22K obo?
