Default If you were to sell your truck...

If you were to sell your truck, how would you do it? I am considering the possibility of parting with my D90. I am not a fan of how forum for sale ad's tend to go, so that is out as is CL.

Bring A Trailer? Seems to bring good money

Consignment to a local dealer?

Bat is good but expect a bunch of self informed experts to weigh in. Be prepared to answer questions quickly and succinctly.

Detail the truck and have a seminpro take pics of it

Yea that is what I don't like about the forums too. I have full confidence in my truck and the work I have done to it with nothing to hide, I just hate tire kickers. Some people take their real life shitty day's out on the internet for no reason sometimes.

That was the plan. I also need to make a list of the work I have done to it.

I dunno, I am not even 100% on this yet. I put a ton of time, effort, and money into this thing. I love my D90 and at this point I have it exactly where I want it. It runs and drives and looks perfect (to me). It would annoy me to see someone with a bunch of money be able to just walk into something that I had to achieve via blood and sweat, but I guess that's life. So much time spent tracking down that little part only I notice or stopping that minor rattle that only I could hear.

For now, thinking about selling my 2010 Xterra, selling Defender, buying a clean LR3 for like $10kish and making it into a daily driver/fun truck with some simple mods. We are considering moving out of state at some point, having a child, and I would like to travel more. Just simplifying my life for the time being and freeing up cash which will give me the ability to do whatever I want.

At some point I would get a Defender again. I also want a 911 and a boat.

I can dig that. An LR3 was my first, and until my Defender, my only Rover. Loved it, owned new from 06-16. Was getting tired and travel killed me with 250-275 miles to the tank. If I could get an LR3/4 with a Diesel, I would be all over it. I considered looking at the new Disco, but have some design anxiety. Tech is awesome, engine is awesome, and reviews state it way more capable than ill ever need....
anyway, good luck.

Biggest issue with bat is that some of the posters there who frequent the defender auctions don't own one. There are so many times they spout absolutely incorrect info pertianing to engine swaps, import docs and replacement frames.

Frankly I'd start on the forums asking your premium price for a week or two , then to eBay for some free advertising then bat. Keep the ad similar and have your ducks in row.

Don't post any pricing deviations

Sorry to cya go

Pretty much what he said above ... & I'd rethink the boat, mine was free and is still a money pit.. granted its an 88' Mark Twain with a 350 in it and for a ski boat its kinda huge... tolerable since it was a free boat.

oh and i have that built up LR3 too.. big nice and comfy but the mileage sucks.. my next truck will be a land cruiser 200 series and just drive it well into the 200K miles mark

I saw the lexus model of the 200 series built up when I was out camping. On 37" tires, equiped through a place here in CO called Slee Offroad. It was beyond sweet. I don't blame you...

Every sport car enthusiast should own @ least one 911. It's a rite of passage.
