    Default Four By Land's Discovery

    Hello all,

    I thought it was only appropriate to change my screen name since I dont have a blue 4runner anymore, I have a 2000 Land Rover Discovery. It is Kent green with solid axles and coils at each corner.

    So far I have installed a 2in. RTE lift with OME shocks and new tires.

    Mods to come:
    -CDL kit
    -RTE slimline front bumper
    -RTE rear Bumper
    -RTE sill guards
    -Hannibal or safety devices rack
    -Optima dual battery mod
    -RTE weld on diff guards
    -Safari Snorkel/Axle breathers
    -Engle fridge
    - ...

    Louis,

    I really like the color of the Disco with the black wheels. Very sweet.

    On your other mods, I would highly recommend the CDL as one of the first changes. That was one of the first modifications done to my Disco II (2001).

    Great idea on the bumpers too. My front and rear bumpers saw many scrapes even with the 265's and 2" OME kit.

    Cant wait to follow the build!

    HAHA, thanks Mark!

    How is the 4runner treating you?

    Scott, the tires are 275x65 and they are so quiet.

    The cdl mod will be next for sure, I will probably mouth the linkage through the center console so i dont have to get out and I wont have to worry about the actuator or wires getting torn due to the elements.

    Good idea.

    I have also heard of the 2004 Shifters with cable being successful too.

    Having seen a few actuators fail to engage, the mechanical arrangement would be best IMHO.

    Yeah, just to many chances for something to go wrong with the electrical ones so I cancelled them out, and the the 04' I hear is pretty much a direct drop in so I will do a bit more research and those will be my options.

    The 04' will definatley keep the stock look but so much of this vehicle will change from stock form (tastefully) that I don't think it will really matter.
