Anyone here from Paramus/Maywood NJ...

or anywhere nearby? Im going to view a d90 at a dealer tomorrow in that area, was wondering if anyone here from the area would like to join me and offer some helpful insight on the vehicle as I am still very new to these vehicles. Im looking to go about noon time, therefore lunch would be on me!

I'm in Westchester but I might be able to come though I'm not sure. Where in Paramus? My knowledge of Defenders isn't great but I might be able to help. Do some searching through the forum and you'll find a lot of good advice.

I appreciate the offer, but just curious, if your knowledge of d90s isnt great how would you be able to help? Unless that was sarcasm?

I've had mine for a couple of years so I'm familiar with the trucks and I have an idea of what to look for. Your best bet would be to have a good mechanic look it over.

I just got back from Europe - if I didn't have a ton of crap to do I'd definitely have you pick me up in NYC so that I could drive you out there in the Porsche to pick this truck apart. Send me the link to it, though.

Tom lives there, but he's on a hunting trip.

If this was closer to me and this wasn't finals for me, i would go with you.

Here is a checklist incase you don't have anyone with you:
Check frame for Rust, if it looks like cancer hit with a hammer to see if its bad.
Check the Body cappings for Bubbling as they are steel and rust out, Check door bottoms, floor pans, feel the bulkhead.
Check exhaust for sweet smell (head gaskets go on these alum block V8's all the time)
Check for leaks under the truck.
FYI most 94's have a LT77 gearbox, Reverse is next to first, it drives a little more like a truck, than the late 94-95 gearbox which is more carlike.
Get it through the gears and check to see if the the clutch is going or not, (floor it in 4th or 5th.

The big things with this trucks, is Rust and Headgaskets, and being in the northeast, most D90 owners will eventually deal with both!

Good Luck!

Where are body cappings and where is bulk head?
Bulkhead is the firewall between the cab and engine bay, and the body cappings are metal trim that is on top of the tub/bed and just under where the roll cage mounts on a Soft Top and where there Roof sides bolt too.

Simple enough...but how do you check the bulkhead? From inside engine bay, can you see down that far or take some dash pieces apart? How bout body cappings? From exterior or inside truck?
Btw...still waiting for someone to join me tomorrow

Damn right! And just to keep you on your toes we call the thing in front of the seats the Bulkhead and the thing behind them a Bulkhead as well.

Americans didn't want the confusion so they took the back one out on NAS trucks....
