1986 LHD D90 300tdi 106k miles

I have had my D90 for just going on 6 years i think... Got it from liveridge in the UK and imported into chicago. Had it there for two years then moved out to colorado with it and now in utah (company is based out of Ogden utah currently, and so is the D90). It has been my daily driver and used it to explore the mountains and go camping with. It has been well maintained and has a few extras. here goes the list of everything on it...

1986 LHD D90 upgraded to a 300tdi
regular 3000 mi oil changes
@ 73150 mi: QT differential guards with welded on brackets
@ 76939mi: Terrafirma +2 lift, includes mid wt springs rear hvy springs front, shocks, drop cones, caster corrected front radius arms, cranked rear arms, stainless extended brake lines, all with poly bushes
@79625 mi: new vented rotors, new calipers, pads, steering dampener, and wheel bearings
@81526 mi: new wheels and tires, Zu alloys and bridgestone dueler AT 265/75
@82653 mi: Rockware front bumper, Red winch challenger instal... engine mounted pump, dog clutch, elec sol mounted above parking brake below center cubby, plug mounted in the side of the cubby, reservoir mounted behind the center bulkhead in the rear tub.
@83816 mi: new steering links, RTE stainless steel drag link and tie rod, Terrafirma HD panhard
@85230 mi: Rear swing away tire carrier by Rockstarfab (indiana)
@86871 mi: Replaced timing belt and EGR removal
@87332 mi: welded up my own rock rails with step up bar, used 3/16 wall square stock for the rails and 1/8 wall 1" tube for the step ups
@89542 mi: installed new OMP buckets seats with 4 point schroth harness
@89760 mi: installed an ESPAR Hydronic 5 coolant heater and airtronic D2 heater, dual battery system with hellroaring technologies controls, welded up two aluminium storage boxes for battery and D2 heater.
@90994 mi: Rebuilt front stub axles, new swivel balls, and new steering dampener
@94994 mi: installed new allisport full length rad, larger intercooler, electric fan, EGR gauge, boost gauge, tran temp gauge, new coolant temp gauge, and oil pressure gauge. Also, three switches, one for the electric fan shut off for deep water and two ready for air compressor/lockers/lights.
@98573 mi: LED lights all around, except backup light
@102046 mi: New water pump, p-gasket, Turner engineering 300tdi performance head, head gaskets, head bolts, manifold gaskets, bosch ejectors, glow plugs
@104688 mi: new front and rear output shaft bearings, rear A-arm bushings (those sucked to replace)

There are some other odds and ends that I missed, including all my oil/grease changes but have done those religiously as well, I did u-joints in there somewhere as well but forgot to note it down when i did them, add put on the Mantec window guards and a few other things somewhere. Oh, I ordered it from liveridge with a full interior cage...

Mechanically the car is kicking butt, i have used this defender for camping, off-roading, in heavy snow and everything else it is built and intended for. We had old defenders for our farm/hunting vehicles growing up in England so that's the only kind of use I know for them, but i have taken care of the D90. That said, there are body scratches on it and a few dents. the hood needs repainting and the rear trim piece on the corner is rusting. I have some pictures but can take more as people request.

Reason I kind of need to sell....since graduating my masters program I have started a company with some buddies and am having to travel around a lot more, as much as i love my D90 no airconditioning in Utah in august is brutal and I wouldn't mind getting a new daily driver, or everyone can buy my company's product and i can by a new truck and keep my defender (Alpha Munitions | American Made. Alpha Grade.) we make high quality rifle brass for the long range shooting world... Buy a bunch of brass then I can keep my D90 and get another daily driver!! Oh, price wise... I have done a lot of work and it is in great working conditioning, not in a rush to sell but i think 70k is a reasonable price for all this D90 is, specially it has little to no rust. Shoot me a message if anyone wants more info/pictures and I can send my email as I'm far more responsive with that.
