2 Gas cans, 1 water can
2 sets of Tuffy speaker boxes (4 total)
spare set of new genuine rear brake pads
new fire extinguisher
new ARB snatch strap


This D90 is being sold as is by private owner. Overall, the truck is pretty clean. NO rust on the frame or bulk head. Frame is super clean (truck came from Texas, spent the last few years in California). Usual surface rust around hinges. It recently had the water pump and viscous fan clutch replaced, and is running stronger than ever. I always change the oil like it`s a matter of life and death at 3000 miles. I have most all major receipts.

Downsides:
-The truck does not have any sort or stereo (I didn`t see the point in replacing it). It is completely wired for one though, and I will be including Tuffy speaker boxes.
-There are a few chips in the paint here and there (nothing serious, but it is 12 years old and a wheeler that has seen some action... I didn`t wheel it hard by any means as evident by looking at the underside, but if you are into wheelin, you know this comes with the teritory).
-Surface rust on the tire carrier (it isn`t deep yet, could easily be taken care of)
-Factory Best Top. Couple of small tears here and there, but keeps you dry for the most part

$28,000 or best offer. PM me, or email me at oldscratchggf@gmail.com

a) $16k is not a reasonable offer.

b) If you would like, in making an offer, feel free to let me know if you are not interested in the spare parts, and that will knock off a good ~$1500

Combination of reasons... not to pay for school, but the truck is proving to be a bigger distraction than anything else right now. My priorities should be with my $40k a year education, not with my Land Rover, but unfortunately, i`ve sort of got my priorities mixed up. The D90 consumes all my time (even my class time... i find myself in class on my laptop lookin at rover porn). I figure I should probably get my shit together and stay focused on what`s right.

That, and I intend to get into a 110 once I am done with school. I am more interested in expeditions, less trail running, so I figure the 110 would better suit me. That`s where the money is going to go. When I graduate next year I`ll be looking for a donor 110 to build a 110 crew cab up off of. Crew cab body from RDS is going to set me back $25k, so I have some saving to do, but with the D90 out of the way, i`ll have more time and motivation to focus on school and working, so I think I should be able to make it happen. I`ve also always wanted to build a kit car. This would be 10 cuts above any kit car.

I`m not going anywhere. I`m sure the D90 source will prove to be a vital resource when building up that 110.

You're only kidding yourself if you think you'll stop looking at rover porn once the truck is sold, you'll go into withdrawal and god only knows what you'll be like then. Send the truck back to CA, put it into storage. How many times have you seen post from ex-defender owners searching all over for their baby. I haven't even heard a happy ending yet from any of them.

In all seriousness, when are you finishing school? In what? Why type of expeditions do you have in-mind?

Ade is right, you're not going to stop looking at roverpr0n, but if the truck isnt really set up for your use, you could let it go. Maybe you just want to sell alot of the trick goodies though and take the thing back to stock? That would give you a donor title for the 110 also if you decide to go that route. Also, consider buying a cheap 83/84 110 out of the UK and doing a LHD conversion as you build it to your specs. That would generate a legit title and avoid using a NAS donor. I could go on and on.

Jim is right on. Don't pay 25k for a body. If you have patience you will find one done the way you want it to that you will be able to legally import in the next two years which sounds like your time frame, and I don't see how a crew cab would be expedition friendly, How are you gonna keep all your stuff, dry, clean and not stolen?

The Trojan Back from Trek Overland is a cool option for making a crewcab a useful expedition vehicle. I like SW's myself, but I can appreciate someones desire for a crewcab.

wow, OK, where do I start...

First and foremost, I appreciate everyones input. Most of my time has been dedicated to figuring out what I want to do next, and then going about it. At this point I figure I know exactly what my next move is, and I am going for it, I just need to wait it out. I figure if all I can do is wait it out, maybe it`ll be a little bit less time consuming for now? for the next 1 year that I am in classes? I realize the Rovers arn`t going anywhere, but I spent so much time researching every move I made with this truck it was ridiculous. I just need to hold off on that for a while.

As for keeping and storing this D90, well, the D90 isn`t what I need. I love this thing to death, it has been amazing to own, but it`s just not what I need. As for using the title to build up a 110 off of, I would hate to tear this thing apart. I think my plan of attack at this point is next summer, start looking for a beat to hell doaner 110, and rebuild from the ground up. I would not be looking at NAS 110s, because they are simply too pricey for me to want to tear apart. I know this might not be the most cost effective way to go, in fact, it wouldn`t surprise me if I double the cost of my D90 by the time I am through, but it`s something I would love to do. Build it up starting with a new galvy frame and go from there. Hopefully by the time this happens too, i`ll have my own driveway, not my parents driveway, to make this happen, and keep a cheap beater of a daily driver as well.

As for the crew cab, I parked my D90 next to a 110 TD5 yesterday, and just the cab it`s self looks to have as much storage as a D90. I`d then run a roofrack with a tent, and either buy or fab up some sort of locking bed cover. I realize that the station wagon would privide me with more space to pack upwards, but a)i am a kick ass packer, b)betweek the rear of the cab and the bed, I would imagine i`d be doing just fine. If anything, I still have a while to explore what route to go.

As for school, 3 more semesters. Studying business and music. We`ll see where it takes me.

Follow-up Post:

I neglected to mention... as for where I want to travel? Well, i`d love to see all of North America, but ultimately, I`d like to make it down to Central and South America.

because literally every email I have recieved has asked... YES, I STILL HAVE THE STEERING WHEEL CAP/ BUMP/ COVER/ WHATEVER YOU WANT TO CALL IT. I have it all taken apart because i was replacing all the switches on the steering column.

I have had people email me not even asking about the truck, but just asking about the steering wheel.

It`s on its way to Colorado right now.

It`s not all bad though- I`ll be looking for a 110 next summer.
