2003 Land Rover Discovery SE7. 84k miles. $15,000.
Located in Southern Illinois, about an hour and a half SE of StL.
I hate to part with this, but want it to go to a home where it can be used. I’ve only put around 5,000 miles on it; only about 20 of those have been trail.
I bought it with 78,831 miles a year and a half ago after unloading a fully-restored ’78 International Scout II. The condition is near perfect with no scratches, no chips, no peeling letters, no white fender flares, all the buttons work, the leather is beautiful, soft and smells great. There is a small ding underneath the factory luggage rack rail on the passenger side, but it can only be seen from up on the rack. The headliner has been re-done.
All fluids were replaced w/ the good stuff, synthetic where applicable at Brit Rover. Belts and hoses replaced. The head wasn't leaking, but had an ooze to it, so it was replaced, as were the valve covers, plugs, and wires at 69,461. The hubs were checked, moving parts lubed, etc. etc.. I have receipts for that work for $3,187. The truck has run flawlessly and is like a new rover.
I have additional receipts for the following parts, totaling $8,396:
Roof Rack and Ladder: Both are semi custom and made by Rover Racks in aluminum. A lot of extra bars were added for strength. It has tabs for 4 front lights, two rear lights, limb riser tabs, and hi-lift jack tabs.
Hella Lights: Rallye 4000. There are two pencil beams, two cornering, and a dual beam rear work light. The installation is very clean, and lights are hooked up to factory Disco I switches; looking 100% OEM.
Odyssey PC2150 Battery: This weighs 80 lbs. and is one bad battery. It will run all the lights and winches and air compressors that anyone would want to add. It squeezes into the factory tray and fits perfectly.
Bottle Jack and Tools: The OEM bottle jack will not lift the truck; it's too small. A proper tool bag with breaker bar and socket and a bottle jack that will lift the truck are all included. Some dremeling was required to fit the new bottle jack in the old location. Looks OEM.
Line X the interior: This was a big $ item, and looks fantastic. The entire interior had to be removed, carpet, seats, trim, belts, etc. to apply, but you won’t have to worry about stinky moldy carpet. It vacuums or wipes easily. The floor gets a little warm around tranny in the summer, but floor a/c fixes it, and heated floors work out nice in winter.
Powder-coated black LR wheels: All five look brand new, and have center caps painted to match. There are newer lug nuts.
Spare tire remount kit: So the big tire would fit on the back. Tires are 275/60/18 Maxxis Buckshot.
Rovertyme Engineering Springs and Old Man Emu shocks: 2" ish lift. The tires add about another 1" or so.
The factory head unit and disc-changer have been removed and replaced w/after-market unit with front usb for ipod.
75,000-mile service was done, and oil has been changed every 3,000 with Mobil 1. Factory driveshaft was replaced with lubeable shaft.
Leather boots for e-brake and 4WD were replaced, so no cracking or peeling.
Brake controller, Borgman plug, and tail light converter installed by North Trail RV Center.
One more minor flaw: The rear door speaker cover is dented. Other than these two minor things, the rig is immaculate.
I have more pictures, and am sure I’m leaving a ton off. PM or email if interested: firstname.lastname@example.org
