Smile 1994 Beluga Black D90

I bought this truck nearly 2 years ago on a whim. I have enjoyed it for 2 summers in the CO mountains but I find that I really do not use it very much most of the year, and it is the right move to sell it right now, as I am trying to go back to graduate school, and I would only have room for 1 truck. I am keeping my 1989 RRC. If she sells, I will still get another one down the road in 5 years or so.

I have driven it only in the nice weather, which for Vail is about 3-4 months of the year. I have put about 6-7K miles on it since I bought it. It has about 58K miles on it presently. I have made a few additions to the truck since I got it, including Rockware front winch bumper (no winch yet), new alternator a month ago, rebuilt oil cooler lines with braided stainless, new ujoints on front driveshaft. I also had the rear ARB locker plumbed up to the compressor, as well as to switches for both.

This is the original post from when I bought it:

http://www.defendersource.com/forum/...ead.php?t=6340

I am firm on $20K, and I am not desperate to sell. If the truck at this price interests you, then please email me at jsummerhill @ gmail dot com to discuss. If there is no interest in the truck at this price, then I already have many of the parts to take this back to stock and will put it on ebay to try to get low to mid 20s.

Not interested in trades; serious inquiries only please.

I will make a post later about with more detailed specs as she sits currently. Cheers :-)

George, that's a completely different front bumper. It now has a Rockware bumper. He removed the ARB all together.

You should have plenty of time while the Red Sox are teeing off on your pitchers (again.)

You know I'm just kidding. It's easy to understand why the Rockies might be rusty after that lay off. I'll tell you that I'm not looking forward to watching Manny stumble around that big left field of yours.

Hopefully, this hijack will get some attention for that truck of yours. It seems like a bargain to me. Good luck.

ok, the pics are going to have to wait until Saturday. I need a new battery for my camera and I want to get her cleaned up a little. I would prefer to sell to someone on here who is more knowledgeable about what they are getting and an enthusiast.

Most of it is the same as when Jabber sold it, with a few differences.

original motor
R380 transmission (not sure when it was fitted but shifts very smooth)
LT230 shifts pretty smoothly (you do need to put a little force on the shifter to get it into low range)
2 new motor mounts w/ new hardware
new stainless steel Summit racing battery hold down
VDO temp guage
ECR extended, braided stainless brake hoses
new alternator (140 amp) from Will Tillery
freshly rebuilt oil cooler lines with braided stainless (Elan Motorsports in Boulder)
new ujoints on front driveshaft
255/85 BFG MTs tons of life. Between me and the former owner, maybe 10K miles on the tires
GCR 16x7 steel wheels
rear drop tail gate
black leather interior
seat covers for all seats
radio shack CB and firestik antenna
1 year old Rockware winch bumper (this thing is sweet looking)
front turn signals moved to correct location next to headlights and blink at correct speed
Slickrock Fab sliders
Slickrock Fac fuel tank skid
Hella H4 headlights (not the vision plus, the better ones)
ARB headlight wiring upgrade
Euro style side markers (See pics)
Spare tire mount on bonnet
Rear pintle hitch (no rear bumper, rear brake light, or tire carrier)
stainless steel front wing vent cover
cool black plastic air intake on other wing
alpine head unit and 4 aftermarket speakers
locking Tuffy center console
Stainless Quick Release door top nuts
original soft top (poor condition)
bimini top
tonneau cover
uninstalled stainless hardware kit (inside and outside)
workshop manual
misc spare parts
A lot of mechanical parts on the truck are newish, including radiator, brake lines, etc.

2" OME lift w/ spring isolators top and bottom all around as well as the rubber securing ring in front
OME LTR shocks all around w/ slick cut-out shock towers
Rovertracks HD trailing arms with the bend in it
Rovertracks tie rod, panhard, and drag link, and sewer cap front diff cover (the stock panhard rod wont fit on with this sewer cap)

Rear ARB air locker
ARB air compressor mounted in pass seat box

Apologies:
some rust in rear crossmember-rest of frame is very good
some rust in bottoms of doors
some rusty bolts on roll cage
***This truck is NOT a rustbucket, but I want to be upfront about everything***
one of the valve covers is leaking (I have used Mobil 1 synthetic since I got it so maybe that has something to do with it)
right swivel is leaking
exhaust is missing after the muffler (the tailpipe is a pretty cheap part)
sliders' paint is fading
overall paint is very good (a few spots of flaking paint on the runners for the tub)
glossy black right rear wheel arch (the matte black ones are $100 from ECR)
was in minor fender bender in grocery store parking lot- The body and paint work was done by SVE autobody in Broomfield. Everything was replaced and done the right way. Just the right rear fenderskin and top runner. they could not however find a matte black wheel arch, thus the one gloss black one.
steering wheel off center (I was thinking about putting on a momo since the stock wheel is huge)
no steering wander though
rear rubber mat is a little beat up
original softtop in poor condition- some rips, 1 zipper doesnt work, doesnt fit over some of the snaps in the back, 1 of the plastic alpine windows is punctured (I only used the truck in the summer with no top)


I had all of these things in consideration when I came up with the price. the truck is not a project. I believe someone will be very happy to be the next owner of her. You could drive her across country, but it would be a long, slow, loud drive. Perfect 90 for wheeling. Not the perfect Martha's Vineyard, detailed weekly 90.

A good sale for me will be if the new owner gets this sweet truck and is happy with his (or her) purchase, not feeling duped by me. I plan on being active on this board long into the future.

thanks for your interest, and hopefully I will have pics on the weekend. Cheers,

Jeff

Exterior Pictures

My camera is having some issues, but I was able to get some exterior shots. I hope to have some interior and engine bay up in the next few days.

I forgot to mention a few items the first time:
-EE convex mirrors
-Rear worklight bracket (Looks like it is galvanized steel)
-galvanized RN series style hood pins (there is no hood release cable anymore!)

With the spare tire mount on the bonnet, the hood latches, and the rear crossmember exposed, she kind of has the series look going on.

Follow-up Post:

please note that some of the reddish stuff underneath is moab dirt.

Follow-up Post:

the hard brake lines have been replaced with the ECR stainless steel kit, and the rubber brake lines have been replaced with the ECR braided stainless kit.

Sure, after work. They look good though. the whole floor has been treated with some sort of rubberized type coating.
