It's a landie, not a sports car. The 4bd1 will hose the general's effort off road.

Not too sure on it having 4.77's in it. It would only be good for 60kmh. I had the army lt95 in my v8 110 and it would do 130kmh at just over 3000rpm with 3.54 diffs.

6x6 is wider but 110 is same width as civvy version.

My bad ... brain fart, you are correct, they had 3.54's to account for the 3200 rpm limit.


They had 0.996:1 high range transfer gears.

The RFSV's had 0.123:1

I think clean RRC value, both SWB and LWB, will start to increase sharply over the next 5-10 years.

To disco or not to disco?

Been thinking about getting an '03 discovery se or hse7. Most seem to have ~110k miles, but I've spotted one with about 75k miles. You seem to get a lot of vehicle for the money. I know nothing of them other than the general specs and that they are very good off road. They seem to fit my bill of ample room, in town luxury, ability to tow reasonable loads, ability to put a bike on a hitch carrier, and sufficient off road capability for my intentions. I've heard that towing heavy loads for long periods is not a good idea, and I don't think that will be an issue for me. Anything in particular to be wary of?

The 03s came without a diff lock for some reason (smoking banana peels?), They also had an oil pump issue.
One must want/love a land rover to own one.
My opinion, coming from owing 3+, is to get a pre 03 disco or a late 04. Even the 04s are a problem; they returned the diff lock, and retained the oil pump issue.
Damn, I love LR, but they are not for the weak.

Everything electrical.

Edit: I'm only half joking. Everything mechanical on my LR3 has been solid, but I have had a handful of electrical issues, generally related to wiring and connectors. Most recently, I had to repair wires from one of the suspension height sensors because they got brittle and just broke—fortunately the sensor was still working fine. I don't know if the DII you're looking at has the air suspension, but if it does, it's typically a weak point (although it is great on the road).

I don't know if the internet helps or hurts values.

On one hand, you hear about all the problems. On the other hand, you can learn about the solutions to those problems and where to get the parts.

FWIW, I do look at LWB RRCs and think it'd be nice to get one. But then I look at my DII and think that I hardly need a second marvel of English engineering to feed and water.

IIRC, '03s had oiling issues. '04s are the real sweet DII that a lot of people look for. It's got the modern headlights, the CDL, and lack of oil issues.

I went the other way, I got a '00 with known problems--three amigos, head gasket, sagging airbags--for cheap. I've since fixed these issues and have as much into the '00 that I'll likely never sell it, or would sell it at a loss if I did. But it wasn't bought at a premium with the hope that nothing would go wrong. So... I guess my advice would be, get a CHEAP LR/RR that has a solid body and chassis with the assumption that you WILL be putting money into it. And find a mechanic that you trust, he'll become your friend.

WAY too much, that's what they cost. But they sure are sweet!

As a factoid for anyone that might not know it already, the D90, RRC and DI all have basically the same mechanicals, just with a different wrapper.

Amen! Would avoid air suspension, or change to traditional
Disco 96 multi organ failure sold, 99 - powertrain failure, 03 T-boned, totaled, my daughter alive and well,
Currently - 04 trail edition - recent oil pump failure around 100k miles, 04 SE 75k miles,

I got my first Land Rover in Panama: a Discovery 4 TDV6



When we moved to CT we got a RRS and an LR4:



And they make great snowmobiles:
