TRADE: My 110 for your 90

Just throwing this out there to see if there is any interest.

I sold my 90, bought this 110, and now I want a 90 back. Can you say seller's and buyer's remorse?

YOUR 90:
- Any year (prefer '97)
- Any top (prefer soft top)
- Any color (prefer shades of green)
- Any mileage.
- I plan on wheeling it.

MY 110:
- 1987 110, imported back in the 90's, I bought it from a guy in in Louisiana (that's right, it's gray market)
- 200tdi, installed by George at RDS 30k miles ago.
- Left Hand Drive
- OME HD springs, retainers
- Actual G4 roof rack
- Rusty doors, and rear crossmember (I will include a new galvanized rear crossmember)
- I would value it at around $24k, so I am looking for a fair exchange.
- I want to keep the rims/tires, front bumper, and a few other bits. An exchange of those parts is requested. Just give me 10 minutes in the parking lot!


Thanks, hope this isn't too complicated.
Greg

Was the motor installed by George or installed in George's shop? Was this truck the one that went through a couple 2.5 Diesel Turbo motors before the owner gave up and put the 200 in it?

Jim,

I spoke to George before I bought it at the beginning of last summer, he said he installed it. I don't know if that meant he did or his shop did. I have never heard that it went through any engines before the 200tdi was installed. I can confirm that the original engine was indeed a 2.5 turbo diesel.

I would HIGHLY recommend anyone interested should look at this first. Like most 110s it has some issues (rusty doors, rear crossmember mainly) but I would consider it to have "good skin and bones" and it is mechanically sound, IMHO.

Hope that helps.

Greg

Yeah, a good truck for someone for sure, 110 with desirable motor, you can just run it and not worry about converting it in the near term.

This looks like the truck in which George was helping the owner replace the 2.5 Diesel turbo, a shop had botched the rebuild so maybe that motor got tossed in favor of the 200. I think the owner was nearing the end of his patience, so maybe George got it all buttoned up.

Sounds reasonable since I like my tires/rims and sg bumper. The only other thing I would like to keep is my corbeau seats (they kind of have a personal meaning)

It is a nice looking truck. Mind I ask what you don't like about having a 110? Why you want a 90 again? I can tell you from having both the 110 is definitely the more time consuming and more annoying to maintain.

Barry,

I thought I needed the extra seats that a 110 offers, but I don't. I like the shorter wheelbase offroad, and it fits better in my garage. I thought the answer would be have a Series 88 and a 110, but in the end a 90 will fill both roles quite nicely, again.

Sad to see this happen, but I have seen this truck and it would be a good exchange.

Hey Charles,

Ideally I would keep the 110, and the Series, and have a 90. That is not going to happen, so I think a 90 will be the best overall compromise, again. Of course, 6 months from now I may be doing the same thing all over again. You probably know better than anyone that I have some serious car-buy-sell issues

Sad. I know.

Hey nothing wrong with rotating through them. My issues are probably worse - I can't let go of them!

Cool, thanks Jim.


Some additional info . . .

I took some pics this morning and posted them here: http://web.me.com/gboshart/Site/Photos.html#10. The pictures make the truck look worse than it really is, but it is what it is.

I have it registered here in Vermont, just went to the DMV with the signed Louisiana title and it was no problem. They don't title vehicles older than 15 years in Vermont anyway, so I still have the Louisiana title, somewhere. I need to find that. It was no hassle at all, even insurance was easy through USAA. I would check with Texas first though, to be sure.

To be clear, this truck can be driven right now just fine. However, I would call this a project truck, as there are some rust issues with the doors, T-posts and rear crossmember. Mechanically, everything else is in good order. If I were keeping it, I would replace the rear crossmember, front doors, probably replace the hinges while doing the doors, replace the t-posts,

I have a set of lightly dented up new doors ('08) I bought off of ebay. I planned on un-skinning the new doors and re-skinning them with the original blue skins. I thought this would keep me from having to paint it, as I like the "patina" it has already. The middle doors can be patched and I don't think they need to be completely replaced.

Greg,
What do you want cash for the truck and keeping it in its current configuration? (the rims/tires, front bumper, and a few other bits). Email me what you want, mkrausej@gmail.com
