new guy looking for mid 90's disco and info

i've gone through my midlife crisis a few years early... 21... and i am selling my cruiser bike right now and will have about 8k to sink into a disco. i was thinking 94-96 would be best for my price range. i'm also a off-road n00b and would like some "internet idiots guide to not getting stuck in the mud" articles if possible, thanks. i am taking a look at a 98 disco 90k for 8,000$ in a few days along with a 96 disco 80k for 7,500$.

it'll be used during college years so low mileage... but 1/4 of that time will be off road probably. help i'm a n00bie and i can't help myself, feel free to link me to death. starting with a stock disco, what is a good starter mod if i plan ot offroad small creeks/muddy roads (no boulders). thanks.

austin

ps - sorry for posting this in the disco lounge.

I posted some response to this issue in your other thread, keep looking, you should be able to find several D1's to choose from. I have a 96', it is serving us well. D1's were only available in the U.S. from 94 to early 99, 94 & 95 models have distributors, 96 & up have coil packs, the first letters of the V.I.N. should read SALJY. Diesel Disco's are N/A for the American folk, though! Thank You, LRW.

The idea is that you DO get stuck, but then you get yourself unstuck!
Don't go off roading by yourself, preferably take a second vehicle, but you can get by with plenty of rope, an axe and a spade.
