Unfortunately, it may be beyond saving. It would be a best to build a "clone" with the panels. Or spare parts for somebody.
It's looking more likely that I'll part it out. I'm not sure what & how much I want to keep. The rack and skid plates would be the first thing to go.
The other truck is...
I bought this with a bundle deal that included another XD. Here's the 411:
Its rusty as hell (see video link)
Im not sure why it doesn't run. It was part of a bundle buy. The previous owner is completely Rover incompetent.
The roof rack and skid plates are there. So are the black castor rims...
Bringing back a 13 y/o tread :rolleyes:
Looking for ideas for plates on my XD. Wisconsin always up to 7 characters and one "space".
So far I have these on other vehicles:
MENNIS - G4
4X4XFAR - 99 TReK
WINEFAN - wife's car
MENNIS 2 - 2002 Corvette
Ideas so far:
When I was purchasing my G4 (way back in 2009), the dealership was offering a warranty. I was going to purchase just for the potential headgasket issues. But after reading the small print, the headgasket replacement was EXEMPT from the warranty. They're not stupid and will exclude commonly know...
So my newest project (1997 D1 XD) is getting good heat to the upper vents but blowing cold air from the bottom. I'm assuming there is a blender motor/vent/something that isn't functioning properly.
Is there a quick and easy fix? Or is this going to be a process?
I'll have to look at the plaque again for the date. I want to say it was Dec. 1996,
I have a non-running XD that was part of the package deal. I have it for sale but it's rough. The build date on that one is 12/14/96
Fast forward a few weeks and look what found it's way into my possesion (mostly by mistake)
She's a little rusty and a lot crusty (parked in a barn for the most of the past 3 years). Needs an electrical gremlin solved, tires are roached, and the brakes are super spongy. But it will look nice...
I'm looking to do a "budget build" on a 1997 XD that I picked up. Nothing to crazy. But I don't think any Disco looks right without a little added height.
The truck is in desperate need of tires. I'd rather buy something that would fit the lift instead of doing the tire thing twice.
