I know how you feel.

I just drove our 200tdi 110 (fully weighted down for expedition use) from Colorado to Texas. Hot as hell and very frustrating with a top speed of 55 with the wind at your back...cars & tuckers riding your ass and then blowing by you and cutting you off ....it's the only time I missed our LR3. Since we are moving Defenders all the time I'm now looking into another LR3 & a trailer. Still have to get this 110 and 130 to Florida...not looking forward to it.

BTW I did love our LR3..even off road..you can also move the suspension sensors and give it quite a lift.

Can you just swap in an A/C unit? May cost you a bit, but definitely will add to the value (and your marriage).

PS - thanks again for the bench seats, looking forward to putting them in.

Yeah, but to make it family/wife friendly I need a LHD conversion and A/C - that's about $2k minimum, and things that don't really affect value. Someone will still buy my RHD non-A/C truck for $35k whether it has those upgrades or not.

I think you should sell it and get the LR3. Of course after the warranty runs out on the LR3 you will need to sell it and get another 110. But that'll be 5 years from now so there will be nicer ones available for less money.

Or...he could sell it and buy Charles' minivan, he says it will run the Taskers Gap trail no problem. Plus, it's family friendly (and has A/C!).

I think if you can get 35k for it then maybe you should take it and get whatever you want. Your LHD conversion and AC might not affect value specifically, but they will sure as heck affect sale-ability.

This is just a question, not intended to be offensive.

Can you really sell a R.O.W. 110 for 35K? I'm just asking, I have not been following the current prices on R.O.W. stuff.

There's POS ROW trucks, then there's rust-free, complete, fully-kitted trucks like mine. As an example, I paid $19k for mine in basically stock condition, then spent another $16k fixing and kitting. There have been plenty of ROW getting as much as NAS 110 recently, although rare. Ask Julian (globallandrovers) what he gets for decent stock ROW 84 110s.

I have been debating a newer(07-09) RR HSE or an LR4... Which in my opinion is plenty manly and looks a lot better inside and out than the LR3. All of my friends have had good luck with their newer LR's. I would also like a ROW 110 too though. Anybody who has had both a newer RR and an LR3/4 have any opinions?

Thanks! That's good to know.

Fully "rebuilt" ROW trucks command really high prices. For example, if you buy a ROW 2006 LHD 110 Tdi SW and a 83-85 donor and put a new frame and a few other parts (either new or off the 83-85) on the 2006 to legally (in the UK legally with the points system -- see what's legal thread) to transfer the VIN, the truck will fetch 60k on ebay. One just did a month or two ago. OTOH, my blue 1983 110 would be overpriced at 10k (in my view) even though Doug says the frame and bulkhead are great and it runs well.

I wouldn't necessarily say Defenders are overpriced - expensive, yes but it's basic supply & demand 101. Limited US models (essentially '93, '94, '95, '97) coupled with large numbers of us freaks that must have these rigs. If you want a Jeep, have at it for relatively cheap (though keep in mind that historically even those have kept their resale value better than any "regular" car).

The above coupled with strict import laws that state only vehicles 25-years or older can be brought into the states further limits the available pool of vehicles - mainly because Defenders were only made starting in 83 so only 83-85 can be brought in to the US. Not to mention that of those years many have already perished from abuse/accidents/etc. Each year now going forward opens up a new cache of vehicles...so theoretically supply will open up a little each year. But we also compete with the Euro states that sought after these early vehicles because of taxes - while we can import after 25 years they get a tax advantage for driving an older car in many cases (no MOT, etc). So that essentially likewise drives up demand, so our "delivered cost" of overseas Defenders even may not change all that much.

And with no plans to ever bring the Defender back to US soil as a production vehicl, those Defenders here most likely will continue to hold values. Sorry Phillip! But I will say that like anything there are certainly deals to be found - jefhuf recntly got a nice Defender ST for $19k....

I just traded my 2008 LR3 for a D110. I love the Defender. I miss some of the comforts of the LR3 but not much. I love the simplicity of the Defender. It's a shame that it costs so much to get a nice one. But that's our government for you. They like to protect us from dangerous thinks like simple, effective, reliable, truck's used all over the world.
