Details:


ENGINE

The horsepower gain of the 4.6 over the stock 3.9 is +43hp. Stock 182 hp. Now 225 hp. The difference in the motors' displacements is the stroke of the pistons. In other words the 4.6 pistons go up and down a greater distance thus displacing more atmosphere. That interior feature is why, on the outside, you can't tell the engines apart. Curiously, the 4.6 gets the same mileage as the 3.9. This conversion is a BIG deal among Defender enthusiasts.


TIRES AND TIRE PRESSURE

Currently running on 36" Radial ITSL big tires, including the spare. The steel wheels have beatlock bolts and can have the kit installed. There are an extra set of 5 33" Goodyear MTR's set up on black steel wheels that come with the vehicle.


GEARING

The original ring & pinion ratio is 3.54:1. To get a slower crawl speed 4.75's have been installed. This can be confusing if you haven't heard this before. But higher numbers in the r & p mean lower gears. Okay, so 4.75's were installed. Great for the trail. But now driving around the gears were too low. This results in a high tach on the freeway. To off set this, the high range gear in the transfer case swapped out for a higher gear. So, out came the 1.222 gear and in went a 1.003. Now the truck can crawl nice and slow over the rocks. But it can also drive at 70 miles an hour and the tach reads a comfortable 2,700 rpm. This whole exercise cost about two grand.

Since the differential were going to be apart I chose this time to install ARB air lockers, too. To have someone disassemble the diffs is costly. Better to do once than twice. The air lockers were another two grand.

Remember you can engage the rear locker or front and rear. But not front only. I guess you could have it configured anyway you want. But the set up is standard. I suggest driving as much as you can with them disengaged ( aka "open") and just engage them as necessary. This reduces strain on everything.

Man - about a week late. I just picked up a 97 AA Yellow. I don't want to waste your time, as I am no longer looking for a truck, but if you would be so kind as to list the gauges you put in the truck. I am very interested in your dash, and would love a little help deciding on better instrumentation.

Good luck on the sale and hope it finds a great home. Are you leaving D90 life for good?

Iirc i negotiated a price in mid to upper teens for this with the previous owner last year but didn't close because it was on the left coast. I would have to go through emails and see if i still have them. Not sure what it sold for. If its the same truck, the previous owner took great care of it and i believe he was the original owner. Check out lrrforum classifieds around June of last year, i don't think it made it onto d90 source.

That's when he joined here, so that'd be a good estimate.

Probably because it wasn't on the Word Doc from the previous owner who wrote the spec sheet.

ok all,
sorry for the delay in responses. correct, i bought this last year. It has been a great experience and i love the car. I am not in a hurry to sell it.

As for the gauges, i have added another batter, so one of the gauges is for that. I also have air to fuel ratio gauge, transmission temp gauge, exhaust fume gauge, etc. Over all there are 11 various sensors and switches (mostly for front and back lights).

The interior has been completely redone (including the seats) and looks brand new. i did put new tires and wheels on it as well, since i was taking my kids on a multi day trip. Over all the vehicle is in tip top shape.

As for the answers to your questions: yes i joined this forum last year. yes i bought this from the original owner (this car was taken care of and i have continued taking care of it). No, mid teens is not going to fly. Yes, it is still available. Why GL vs D90: I have a number of cars. The GL is my wife's. I do drive the D-90 at least a couple of times a week to my work and back. Yes i used the docs i had from the previous owner to give the serious buyer a more in depth look as to what it has. I did however add my additions to the list. Yes, i do have a hardtop, but that is not for sale, however there is an awful lot of extras that come with this car (including an additional 5 wheels and tiers, side steps, new and used engine parts, all records and docs for most of this car's life, extra axle parts, so far. No, i am not leaving the D-90 life :0)

hope this answers most of the questions.
If serious, then let's talk.
thanks all.
