    Disco isn't dead... not yet.

    I tried buying the EXACT same truck as yours (now the parts truck) before this one. Still haven't added that little adventure to the thread. Can't decide if all of these trucks were completely trashed by their owners or just poorly made. It can't possibly be the second one though! haha

    Disco isn't dead... not yet.

    Thanks for the input, this is exactly the kind of stuff I hope to gain from the members here! The build thread is about 6 months behind real life and your comment was exactly the consensus I came to based on my own research several months ago. I have a plan to confirm and potentially repair...

    D1 rescue for my daughter

    I have 235/85r16 K02s on my D1 with a 2" lift and it'll still rub at full lock and full compression in the rear. No way it will fit stock/on old worn coils. I also did the rotoflex to u-joint conversion, no noticeable improvements in driveline vibrations. Having been through the swap I would...

    Dang well glad you got it sorted. And if you ever decide to part it out let me know. But here's hoping you drive it forever. Not enough of these D1's on the road.

    Was the truck too far gone originally? I had one that I learned the hard way on as well... That'll be part of the thread later.

    You should start a build thread of your own. Would definitely like to see more of it.

    Disco isn't dead... not yet.

    Thanks for the comment! Still a lot more upgrades to get through (all this is several months behind). Do you have any pictures of your truck? Based on your signature it is very similar to where I want to take this eventually. A SD would have been nice, these sunroofs have to be the worst drain...

    Disco isn't dead... not yet.

    At this point I decided to take the truck around the block and put some gas into it. I pull up, open the fuel filler door and am greeted with this. Definitely not ideal, the fuel filler neck is just wobbling around due to this gasket being completely gone. I proceed with filling the tank, I...

    Disco isn't dead... not yet.

    Next up was the swivel housings. I went back on forth on this one for whether I wanted to use the one-shot grease packets or gear oil. The online debate on this subject was pretty fierce, but eventually I came to the consensus that if your truck has a fluid level check bolt, then you should use...

    Disco isn't dead... not yet.

    So the first thing I did was target things stopping me from driving it as well as the low hanging fruit... fluids. The spongy brakes were first on the list. Based on the color of the fluid in the master cylinder I suspected a flush and some bleeding would be sufficient. I siphoned all the fluid...

    Hey Everyone, The following build thread will detail the adventures and restoration of a '96 D1. I have been looking for one of these since starting to get into the off-roading and overlanding scene, but I had to have a 5spd and heavily preferred a OBD2 GEMS truck. As many of you know that...

    FS: 1995 Disco SD 5 Speed

    Good luck with the sale, if only the wife would let me have a third. It'd be worth an appearance on TLC's Hoarders for a solid 5spd D1 in white.

    FS: 1995 Disco SD 5 Speed

    @DiscoDavis love the truck, sad to see you letting it go. Definitely one of the better 5spds for sale currently. I have two R380 D1's myself though my white one couldn't escape rust... That being said how do you know the rubber-banding is in your diffs and not the input gear in the LT230?

    manual transmission for classic Range Rover

    Yep, R380 = 5 speed manual. Pretty hard to come by.

    manual transmission for classic Range Rover

    @REDROVER I have a parts car R380/LT230 '96D1 that you might be interested in. Shoot me a PM if you change your mind, also congrats on the nice RRC. I like the color.

    1995 4Runner DD/Adventure "Killbox"

    LCE EGR Delete How do you like the EGR delete kit? Notice any difference after you installed it? I ordered the kit for my 2nd gen and will be installing it this weekend. Looks fairly straight forward. Also nice work on the truck, it is very similar to what I have done, though I have not updated...

    Overland Journal: Discovery I, 5-speed

    Hey Scott, Any chance the person you sold your truck to would entertain an offer assuming it's still chugging along?
