I reached out to a friend in Colorado that is a graphic designer and in hopes he can work what's available online and/or use his contacts in finding the decal.

Hey Shawn,

Did you get the compass on your bonnet yet?

I own number four of ten 1996 Trek event trucks which the 1997 XD commemorated. It was also one of four used for Camel Trophy 1997 USA team selections. None of the 1996 trucks were built by special vehicles. They were all SD promo trucks modified at LRNA for Trek and Eco Challenge. Treks were all R380 trucks. I'd like to know where the other 9 Trek trucks are.

Hmm, I wonder if corporate may know.
I recently bought a 96 XD and trying to sort out its history. Could someone snap a pic of were exactly that eco challenge sticker would be? I have the adhesive of a square sticker but want to see if it matches up with other eco challenge trucks. Mine doesn't have any eco challenge stickers on it and the ones it does have are in the wrong places. Or if there is any one in dfw that has one I could look at. Just trying to get it back to original shape.

Yes, that is where it should of been. It's a shame that they didn't metal plate them instead.

I drove past an eco challenge up in Seattle yesterday. Driven by an old guy who I'm sure bought it new. So there's 1 of the 28 up this way.

Hi,
I recently bought a 1996 eco challenge XD in Las Vegas.

The mechanicals are sound but cosmetically needs some TLC.

Questions:

What is the best way to get the door decals?

The sticker saying what # the car is out of 28 is gone.
How can I find out my number?

Hello Troph,

Just a month before moving from Las Vegas, I learned about another Eco in town. The eleven years of living there never knew about another in the area. May I ask and you certainly don't have to answer, How much did you pay? In the near future, I'm thinking of selling mine and would like to get an idea how much I can sell her for. Thank you in advance.

Umm.. door decals, mine are still stuck on strong, but for my hood I was referred to 702 Graphics. They are near the race track. Good luck!

Per my research a few years ago regarding the number, corporate Land Rover nor the dealership kept track of that info. But... I do know you don't have #26. Also thus far that I know of, 3 have ended up in junk yards.

Hi,

I paid 3700 for it. However, it has a bit more kit on it than the standard XD.

Any chance you could post me a good photo of your door sticker ?

Also I live in San Diego. Its tough finding a good SD in the south west.

thanks

The door decal isn't just one sticker, but maybe you can have that done by a graphic designer.

So sorry for the delayed response.

Have a great day

I paid $3400 for mine in July. 122xxx on the clock, came with SG bumper, GBR front and rear shafts, RTE front arms and rockware rear arms, 3" lift. Clear coat fading. Interior was pretty good, seats outstanding. Does have some surface rust but no rot that I have found. Also if you want to add to the count, there are two more Eco's I know of here in DFW, so 6 of 28 still running round.
