1997 Land Rover NAS Defender 90. If you are looking for a last year NAS Defender that can be used
for what it was made for then this is your truck. This is not a garage queen that has only made trips to the mall
and Starbucks. The truck has 126k miles and mechanically runs very good, idles nice and no smoke on startup, has
nice power and shifts through all the gears nicely. Since this is the last year 1997 D90 it is an automatic with
factory air conditioner.
As you can see in the pictures there has been several modifications done to the D90 over the years. Below is a
list of all those items. The body and frame are in overall nice shape for a 20 year old defender that has been
used, it does have some rust body rust in several spots (mainly on the rear lower door/gate area). This would be a
pretty easy fix as it is rust bubbling in a few spots currently. The frame has no rust and I have taken several
underside pictures to show potential buyers. Heat blows hot and AC blows cold with good pressure. I just had a
new battery put in about a month ago as well.
I have listed the items below that need to be done on the truck to take it to the next level, I just drove as is
and decided not to mess with them. This is not a Lexus everyday turn key vehicle, it is a 20 year old truck that will always
need maintenance and little things to keep it running. Also if you are looking for a perfect garage queen please
keep looking, this one is defiantly not that, it's just a solid D90 that again has been used, light off road etc.
Modifications
Powder Coated alloy OEM wheels
285/75R16 Fierce Attitude M/T tires with excellent tread life
Kenwood Stereo with aux jack and Bluetooth
2 6x9 JBL speakers in rear, 2 6.5 speakers mounted in front seats
Plated bonnet and wing tops
Equipe rock sliders
Draken front winch bumper
Draken roof rack
Draken 4 link suspension
Smittybuilt XRC 8000lb winch
6 total Hella lights, 4 mounted on roof rack, 2 on front bumper
Tom Woods double carden front drive shaft
Tom Woods double carden rear drive shaft
Con's of D90
-Missing rear tail gate inside cover
-headliner was removed at some point so will need to be done or left only
-was rhino lined at some point on the interior but doesn't look great in the front driver passenger area.
-passenger role up window handle pops on and off
-I would change back the suspension to OEM or do a slee off road OME conversion, the suspension on it now is old
and pretty worn out.
-Brakes need to be gone through, it stops fine but there is a scraping noise front the rotors I assume, just didn't
get around to addressing.
- Odometer is digital and goes in and out, this was a common problem with NAS D90's
- E-brake light on dash goes off and on, no other lights on dash on.
- bubble rust areas on rear gate, right rear of D90.

Jaguar may join the FWD, small-car parade

Tue, 13 Aug 2013 10:01:00 EST

Was it right for Chevrolet to detune the 1975 Corvette's base engine to 165 horsepower? Was Aston Martin wrong to make the Toyota iQ-based Cygnet? Is BMW crazy to be testing the new 1 Series with three-cylinder engines and front-wheel drive? It seems now, just as in the 1970s and 1980s, that emissions regulations and social considerations are driving some automakers to adopt unbefitting practices to maintain acceptance in the eyes of governments and consumers. Jaguar has jumped on the bandwagon, and is considering development of small, frugal, front-wheel-drive cars to help lower Jaguar Land Rover's average vehicle CO2 levels in light of tightening European emissions regulations, Autocar reports.
By 2020, the European Union expects the model range of every manufacturer to average 95 grams per kilometer, which is a new law passed by the European Parliament in April. Manufacturers who make more than 300,000 vehicles per year must meet these targets, and JLR is expected to be producing up to 700,000 vehicles per year by then. CO2 regulations after 2020 will only get stricter, as EU politicians already are talking about lowering CO2 levels to between 68 g/km and 78 g/km. (To put that in perspective, Autocar posits that driving a fully charged electric vehicle in Europe produces about 75 g/km when factoring in the power-generation infrastructure.)
Jaguar has some choices here, but so far they all have drawbacks. It could develop a new, compact chassis architecture for a line of compact vehicles, but the investment required for such a project could be prohibitively expensive. Jaguar has been looking into using the Land Rover Evoque platform for a small SUV, Autocar reports, but Land Rover brand manager John Edwards raises issue with such a plan, saying it may not be financially feasible.

Jaguar appoints Joe Eberhardt as North American President

Thu, 19 Dec 2013 18:02:00 EST

Jaguar Land Rover North America has appointed a new president, Joachim Eberhardt. The German exec, 50, had previously done stints at Chrysler Group, DaimlerChrysler UK, Mercedes-Benz USA and Daimler-Benz.
Eberhardt joins JLR NA in a good, but challenging time for the company. It's fresh off the launch of the Range Rover Sport and Jaguar F-Type, which have been subject to rave reviews, and its overall sales are up 21 percent over 2012. Still, as Automotive News points out, the two manufacturers face a fight to become the equal of A-list competitors like BMW and Mercedes in the eyes of consumers.
"Joe brings a proven industry track record and valuable global leadership experience in luxury sales, service and marketing. We look forward to Joe leading our North American team in working with our retail networks to further grow the business and better serve our customers," JLR's group sales operations director, Andy Goss, said.

Ford's J Mays feels vindicated by Fusion reception

Tue, 25 Sep 2012 16:30:00 EST

It's hard to think back now, but the same man overseeing the design of the 2013 Ford Fusion also presided over a rather lackluster period in Ford design, highlighted by vehicles like the Five Hundred and Freestyle. With the redesigned Fusion receiving high praise, J Mays tells Automotive News that he feels vindicated from criticisms suggesting he's not a daring enough designer.
When Mays took over as lead of design in 1997, he admits to having quite an ego ("My head would barely fit through the door some days. I've long since gotten over myself") and the workload to match. With the Blue Oval's portfolio full of premium brands like Aston Martin, Jaguar, Land Rover and Volvo at that point, along with the bread-and-butter Ford, Lincoln and Mercury models, Mays certainly had quite the challenge.
It was in the mid-2000s that Mays took over just the premium brands, and took on the new title of Chief Creative Officer. At the time, Mays endured some criticism for looking backwards to retro styling, rather than setting a new standard for American car design - criticism that Mays says he is free from with the all-new Fusion.
