97 D90 SW Alpine White $21,000

4.0, AT, 159k miles, #2212, BFG KM2's with approx. 6k on them (255/85-16), Rock sliders with jack points, A/C works well, Pioneer stereo. Old man emu shocks/steering damper (and 1" lift springs I believe). Runs and drives great, it has been my daily driver since I purchased it in 8/08 with about 137k on the odometer. Truck was originally purchased in Maryland, I bought it out of New Jersey. Fluids (t-case, swivel balls, diffs, wheel bearings, etc..) were replaced in the last 3k miles. Recent VDO temp guage mod, new alternator, new plugs and wires. I had some missing issues and the alternator was the culprit!! (thanks Ron!) There is a little tick coming from the right engine bank when it is cold for a minute or two at startup, could be a lifter or an exhaust leak. Hasn't changed since I bought it and I have not tackled it yet. Also it has a small coolant leak from the front if the intake manifold, I add about a quart of coolant every couple months. It doesn't use any measureable amount of oil. There are a couple dings in the drivers door and a little rust in the common areas, bottom of the rear door is the worst spot by far, the pics will tell the story. Definitely well below average for a MN truck! I removed the door hinges when I bought it blasted them to bare metal, machined the hinge for a bronze bushing and primed/painted with some PPG products, there is a little rust bleed from behind the stainless screw heads but they look good really, the bushing seems to keep the paint from breaking where the hinges rub on each other, I should post a write up sometime in the small project forum... I machined some aluminum wing vent covers, I still have the originals if the future owner prefers. I also have a bolt on brush bar and headlight grills in really nice shape I just prefer the bare bumper lately (it gets less commonly confused as a jeep ) I know there are a lot of miles but this truck is tight and in great shape. The fact that it is daily driven instead of sitting in a shed I think is an advantage in a way. Needs nothing to drive cross country or wherever right now. PM or reply to this thread with questions.
-Jon

If I had the cash in hand instead of a big International I'd be right there to buy it. Nice truck and seems like a good honest sale IE: Nice pics and details of the truck.

"Seems like a great deal " Gotta love the Defender world where a 160,000 mile truck is a great deal at $21,000! The same vintage RR or Disco would be worth $1500! OR less.

Good luck with the sale, it is a nice looking D90.

I mentioned the front brush bumper, here is a pic of it from a canoe/camping trip last summer. These pics also show the canoe rack I have for it if the buyer wants it.

Seems decent for a 1997 with minimal rust.

It is a nice truck. My point was only that the Defender world is a unique place where 160,000 mile and 12 year old trucks bring $21,000. it is great.

How true!! I remember when I sold my dII to a guy recently and he asked me why I was selling it. 03 with only 52k. I told him I didn't need two land rovers and just bought my 97 with 120k and like that so much more...I wish I took a picture of his face when I said that!

Interior Pics

A couple of you guys have asked for interior photos...

Follow-up Post:

And, now a pic with the window tint... I have a friend that is trying to keep me from selling it I think. So he came over and put this tint on for me, did a really nice job too. It really changes the look of the truck.

When were the oil cooler lines replaced? Considering a drive.... Thanks- nice truck by the way. I was looking for a s/t, but this would work for sure.

Want an Audi allroad 2.7 twin turbo 6 speed in trade? How about a 1961 International all wheel drive beast of a truck with 8K original miles? :D

I have too much "inventory" right now or I'd be on a plane to come get this one....

Good luck with the sale, it looks like a nice driver. I really would love to have it.
