Fng

Hello all. I've always liked and wanted a D90. I passed on a 97 D90 in 2001 with 40K miles for $40K. Today I saw a similar D90 for nearly $60K. Anyway, I'm seriously considering ripping off the band-aid. I will never crawl over rocks nor disconnect things and make it look like what you see in pictures. However, I hunt and want to go where I want to go when I want to go. I have a full-sized GMC Sierra Z71, but I'd still like a D90 during hunting season. I want a clean D90 without paying the middle man. I'll keep lurking here for any help. Also, I saw one in CLT today on CR, we'll see if he responds. Thanks for any information.

If you're talking about the green one, we were just talking about that one last week - mlorman started the thread. Check the Flea Market section of the forum. It's called a POE for Point of Entry because they put that top on without a cage at the tail end of 1994. Search POE for more information on them.

You'll pay even less for a D90 if you buy one that has been imported recently that is from the 80s.

Thanks, but not that one. The one that just popped up today, as far as I know, is looks to be a white SW.

single pic, terrible description, under $10k = classic scam format. At least you're trying though.

List your year preference, color(s), mileage, condition, soft top or SW, budget, etc. - sometime people here are looking to sell without actually going through the hassle of listing their truck for sale.

You may be right, I really did assume some 0s got dropped. I'd like a 95,97 D-90. I like sticks , but auto is OK. Hardtop. The most important thing is to have clean metal. I'm not looking for any extra rock crawling stuff. I'm more a mud guy, but nothing too deep these days. Growing up on a farm, I've stuck everything from a jeep to a bulldozer. I'm a pilot, which makes me cheap. 20K is my target, but I may have some spare change to add. I've spent enough time in Europe to want to strangle the SOB that won't let me buy a new one. So now we pay triple what they cost over there, or here, depending on where I am, or not.

Best advice is: don't buy the first one you see, drive as many as you can, documented maintenance over mileage. And, always, always look for rust in all the rust prone areas. Don't be afraid to walk away.

Thanks. I still have the 77 Midget from high school, rust and all. Hasn't moved in 20+ years. Do you know why the Brits drink warm beer? Lucas makes their friges also. At least the D90 has the electrics sorted. Perhaps in a few more generations the'll get the rust sorted as well.

You'll probably get a few Viagra e-mails in your Inbox in the morning after e-mailing that listing.
