ID:	3908 Current LR3, also have a 95 RRC LWB project, but no pics of it apparently. I’ll try to fix all my fucked up posts with small pics and combine it to one later.

                I currently have two, although they are Disco 2's numbers 2 and 3 for me (and landy #4, I had a Series IIa many years ago)... I have the D2 illness... although that illness is probably something very much like Stockholm Syndrome...

                My first one was a red TD5 diesel which I sold after owning for quite a few years and over 100,000km, my new red one is a V8 and all I can say is it has about the same power for about 5 times the fuel costs. Sure, it sounds better but fuel here (in pre-covid19 days) was like $2.50 per litre or something like that, and with an 80-odd litre tank I just couldn't bring myself to drive it that much... so now its a pseudo-tractor and parts donor.

                My daily driver / toy (and secondary pseudo tractor) is a 5-speed TD5 diesel facelift with a remapped engine... its a lot of fun to drive on- and off-road, but after driving this a lot with heavy loads I do wish it was an auto because the TD5 engine is pretty lacklustre below about 1800RPM so taking off with heavy loads or in boggy ground or sand requires a lot of clutch feathering - I've read a few threads on using the V8 auto on a TD5 and will probably go that way eventually since I have one sitting in the red truck - but that means I need to also find and fit a TD5 auto ECU - so I'll loose my remap... so I may just sell it and get Landy #5

                    Can't seem to find any good recent pictures wheeling... just means I need to get out more!

                    An older one though:

                        Love the soft top D1

                        We had one that color from new ('94) until it was replaced by the silly Aussie thing that showed up a couple of years ago....

                          A couple of recent pictures of my Rangie and my Dads Disco.

                            Look closer It's a D2. It's the brake lights that throw folks. Had to swap in D1 lights due to the chop

                              Thanks. She's on 37" bias Treps, 17" KMC Machete Crawl beadlocks. ARBs front & rear, pegged, with GBR 443 gears. Original SG 4" progressive rate springs with dead coils, Fox adjustable remote res shocks. The armor and skids are all original SG. Bracketry is mostly old school Rovertym but with Expedition Exchange rear pancake retainers. 8-point roll cage and the soft top are both custom jobs. Hard Labor Creek drag link. Tie rod is original RTE. Terra Firma castor corrected front radius arms. Ashcroft CVs/shafts. Tom Woods drive shafts. Oh... and an old CJ rear seat in the back. Probably a few things I'm forgetting.
