Another thing I remembered from owning one. This winter if you get a chance. If you your abs constantly kicks on. Replace that module. It will drain your battery even while your driving.

I'm so jealous. Every time I walk outside and look at my Jeep, I wish it was a discovery. We should get together once your lift is in and I get mine finished up. Id like to see if I made a mistake.

I got the lift installed yesterday, was just too dark to get some good pics. It drives like a whole new truck, but of course anything was an improvement over 18-year-old factory suspension. I'll get a couple shots this evening after work. We'll definitely have to get together, if I have some extra time maybe can help you finish yours up

I hear you on wishing for a Discovery, that's how I felt every time I drove my old Pathfinder. I'm sticking with Rovers from here on out.

I just wanna say screw you. I have spent the last 3 hours scouring the internet for a good 99 and earlier or 2004 model.

I've always liked the Disco a lot better. The P38 Rovers are plagued with a lot of air suspension issues if you don't convert to coil springs. The 4.6 would definitely be nice though.

Haven't been too many good options on craigslist lately, best deal was a pretty clean 97 that is having some engine issues, but it's dirt cheap. Could be a new engine, could be something more simple, who knows but would be a gamble. Rovers are addicting

Some crappy cell phone pics on the way home. Truck definitely needs washed and some cleaning up. And I definitely need some bigger tires now!

That looks pretty clean for an old one. I went and looked at that white 96 that is on there right now and the interior on it is trashed and it leaks oil like a sieve. Some old lady owned it and never took care of it.

If there's no oil under it, there's no oil in it... ?

That white 96 has been on craigslist for a LONG time, was there when I was buying my Rover in November! Driven and neglected seems to be the story with most Rovers unfortunately. Mine was bought by a dad for his high school daughter to drive to school, and they did absolutely no maintenance to it. Leaked power steering fluid as fast as you could put it in, front seats torn and covered with leopard duct tape, suspension and steering all factory original with the tie rod boots pretty much not even existing; I'm really surprised they still had it on the road.

I've been doing some cleaning up to it, it's worlds better than when I bought it but I still have a long list of things I want to get done on it too. Looking at my pics I didn't realize the corner is hanging off my front bumper, I must have missed that screw

It also looks like your Discovery has the ole protective oil coating on the underside. Ya might have some more leaks to plug

Trust me, they don't make enough degreaser to get all that crap off the bottom of the truck.
