Greetings from Colorado!

I'm the ecstatic new owner of 1993 NAS Defender 110, #222/500. Purchased this week from a nice gentleman in Crested Butte. Great shape, 39k original miles. I'm looking forward to a long and storied future with this character.

Wow! And starting at the top, too!! Miss my NAS110 terribly.

I just took my first cross-country driving trip this year, making my way to Colorado and Utah. Drove out and met my wife and kids at DIA. A beautiful state, Colorado! We caught Salida, Sand Dunes, Durango, Mesa Verde, Silverton, Ouray (including Yankee Boy Basin and Engineer Pass), then over to Estes Park and the Rocky Mountain National Park. Left them off at the airport and wept all the way through Nebraska!

Hope you can take it on many far flung adventures! Like it was made to do!!

Check your oil cooler lines and replace if necessary!!

I am serious.

Looks good, make sure the tires are in good shape, looks from here as if the original 7.5/r16's are still on! I would say 10 years max on a set of tires!

Thanks for the info and well wishes. The truck is in great shape, but I have a list of issues I'll address immediately. The tires were bought in 2000(!) and will be upgraded in short order. I'm thinking 285/75 16's on stock white wheels, as I like a little beefier looking tire than the skinny stocks, and I may do a gentle 2" OME lift to improve the stance, but I'll take any advice on that topic. All the hoses are original and will be replaced, and my mechanic has sourced a braided oil cooler line to minimize fire risk.

I have a few other, less critical upgrades I'm considering like a front winch, better off-road lights, etc. The engine runs strong (held 65 mph coming up I-70 today) so no real issues there. I hope to use it like it was meant to be used!

That's a great looking 110! Be sure to shoot some more photos for us to see soon! It's really tough to find one with such low miles, since everyone loves to drive these!! Congrats!

as others have said. Oil cooler lines are your first priority.

Sweet truck!

Great looking truck... Not a lot of 110s out there with less than 40K miles.

Good-replacing the oil cooler lines on a '93 truck is a must--or just remove altogether since you're in CO.

4 x Hella 4000's on the roof will be plenty of offroad light. 2 cornering beams and 2 spots.

They just look correct on a NAS110.

Please dont put a 50" LED bar on it...

Welcome and beautiful truck! And I like the 285/75 tire and 2" lift combo, that will look nice. Keep the original springs and don't drive it another friggen' inch till you change the oil cooler lines. Seriously! Too many horror stories and near catastrophes with those things.

Congratulations on the purchase and welcome! I live in the UK but spent my first 42 years in Colorado; you have a lot of wonderful places at your doorstep, enjoy exploring them.
And be sure to check out the local Rover club - The Solihull society, great group of people.

I'll definitely look into the Solihull Society. I have a few friends with Rovers, but it'd be great to meet a wider group of enthusiasts.

Tires and oil lines are first on the list.

For lighting also consider the ARB headlight harness to optimize what your normal day to day lights will be putting out.

Very nice snag.
