I am helping a very close friend sell it. This type of vehicle requires a lot of time and attention to sell which, since I am retired, I can handle.

------ Follow up post added May 5th, 2016 02:02 PM ------

More info: This D90 was serviced by Land Rover of Hyannis, MA., we have the receipts. It has a clear title. It's unknown where it was before it was purchased in Boston, (Japan,...etc.). There is no rust. Some parts under the truck, like the stabilizer bar, have lost some paint just from driving around. I am working on getting more pictures.

Yes, I know what to look for on a truck and it's usually more than just a photo of a rear cross, door sill and foot panel. That's entire point of my post.

I hate dirtying a FS sale so apologies to the OP.
So of the seasoned guys mention things to inspire questions for the not so seasoned guys. Barry is right and it's normal to post problem area photos.

I respect the forum guidelines and glad we have them when posting in the For Sale section. And compared to other forums I've been in, they're pretty lax here, most require a specific thread title stating model of car, mileage, price and location so that all are consistent and you don't have to open each one when perusing. Posting a 1-liner that says the mileage and it's "fine" and then throwing out a $85k price tag should get some negative feedback. Post your truck, some history, who you are, go through the GOOD the BAD, the maintenance done and needed, good shots of all problem areas, and driveway glamour. If you're too lazy to do that, you better be prepared for some feedback from those who are serious and/or experienced.

Well Signal, its not his truck. He is posting for a friend who is Mass but he lives in NJ. He seems very new to this stuff. I sense a CL ad in this trucks future.

The truck is on eBay right now. At this point I can't fault the poster or owner. If you don't come on forums like this, and you join to sell your truck (which is fine) you may have no idea what to look for. The average buyer of a car isn't looking at the bottom of the doors or frame of anything.

The owner may not even know this truck is a jap spec or what that means and might be shocked to find out the rear cross member had been worked on and the mileage might be inaccurate.

This is why I love this site. Honest feedback and sometimes a little crazy talk but always get to the real story of a truck. As someone who is shopping it's nice to see the opinions and requests for extra pictures and information. I learn a lot from the group here.

OP for the asking price I would detail the engine bay as it still shows badly IMHO.

Again I hope you find the right buyer for the truck.
