School a Jeep Guy on Discos.
A Couple of months back I was on here asking about Series rover. Mostly 88's, since that time Iíve gotten a new job and had my time pretty filled up. Now that gas prices are coming down Iíve decided to start looking for a suitable expedition vehicle again. I have a 98 TJ thatís set up for 4+ trials (Lockers, 35ís, Atlas II), and have been dally driving a 2007 2 door Wrangler dally. I had bought a Wagoner last fall hoping to make it into my long hall ride. But that Gas Mileage was less than advertised and it need more work than I wanted to do (oh and then thereís that darn old carb). That about the time a started looking at 88ís and 109ís, now I know I want something newer again with less work to get started. That brought me to the Discovery. Now what I know about modern Rovers is well not all that much. I know about the Electoral problems from an old buddy for school with a D-90 and I have picked up camping on the Site that the mid 1990ís Series 1 are more reliable than newer one. I also have a Cousin who has a 2003 Discovery who has tons a trouble. Cousin aside I love the History of Land Rover and find it close to my beloved Jeep. With that I have decide a Discovery embodies what Iím looking for in a overland/ expedition SUV. SO enough with my life, I wanted to get an ideal of what to look for in a Disco. I would like to know the best Years to buy and what problems to look for as I look on E bay and Craigís list. I want to try to know just what I want when I got to buy. All Iíve got right now is color, green or red. Oh and I really done want to spend more that four or five Grand.
Also any help in the after market would be nice. I know about Rovertym, but that about it. Iím looking to put it on 33ís with 4.10 gears other than that Iím open to help.
Thanks for any help and fell free to blast my dreams if you want.
