Unhappy White 1995 D90 SW - Rhode Island

Well, I'm finally selling my D90. I've had it since 2001, brought if from stock to what it is now. Unfortunately, I just don't have the time to give it the attention it needs. This truck needs some work, it's been sitting for about a year, and little driven in the year before that. I'll get some pictures posted as soon as possible.

First the good:
  • Safari Gard front bumper w/ integrated skid
  • Superwinch S9000 winch
  • Blue Diamond 3/8" synthetic winch line
  • RBS Composite fairlead
  • QT Services Diff Guards
  • Safari Gard Rock Gard
  • Safari Gard Hi-Lift mount
  • LR Roof Rack w/ expanded metal flooring
  • Mantec rear tire carrier
  • Rear bumperettes
  • stainless steel gas tank skid
  • Flowmaster 50 Muffler
  • OME springs (HD front, MD rear, all DS)
  • Bilstein shocks & steering damper
  • Custom rock sliders
  • K&N Air Filter
  • Cheap Radio Shack CB w/ 3' Firestick
  • 34x10.5 Super Swamper TSLs
  • Safari Gard 15" steelies
  • Truck-lite 9007 halogen headlight replacements
  • TD5 bezels with clear upper markers
  • Lightforce aux. lights
  • Reverse wired rear flood light
  • DAP 5 bar Wing protectors
  • VDO gauges throughout (including speedo)
  • has all four jump seats, in relatively good shape
  • i'm sure there's stuff i'm forgetting
  • fairly recent:
  • clutch, including master cylinder
  • oil lines
  • plug wires
  • brakes

You can see some pictures of it in it's hey-day here on my bio:
http://www.defendersource.com/forum/...referrerid=116

On to the bad:
  • As I said, it hadn't run in a year, and has picked up a skip now and is hard to start. motor still sounds good and quiet.. i have no idea what the problem is.
  • it's filthy
  • I know it needed wheel bearings or something, because the front end has a shimmy/wheels wobble
  • the starter makes a horrendous noise, but refuses to die
  • it's filthy (did i say that already?)
  • rusty door hinges
  • surface rust on the frame and underneath
  • some bubbles on the passenger door, and under the driver's a bit
  • -- the truck was only on the road for 4 NE winters, it spent it's life in FL, so this is not your typical 18 year old NE truck! rust is not it's major issue
  • various dents and scratches... the passenger door has a rough gouge
  • synthetic winch line broke and was tied together (on the trail) -- still works!
  • leaking transfer case, something else up front too
  • it's filthy
  • probably many other small things, hopefully nothing major, but I do not know

basically, it's gonna need some work and some money to be back up to snuff. It's not drive-able right now with the skip, though it starts and can be moved around (it has little power). It's got around 95K miles, I have to find the original speedo and do the math for sure.

So that's it. Taking into account it's current state, and that fact that it's the 'rare' 95 SW, I'm asking for $15K and looking for a quick sale.

Offers are encouraged.

Clearly the deal of the century and a RI truck same as mine ... If I wasn't paying for a wedding I'd snap this rare desirable white SW in an instant!

Good luck with the sale, however at this price you'll be beating them off with a stick!
