A good buy?

Hi all, Iíve been looking into purchasing a 2003/2004 Disco 2, I have found many options that look promising but I saw one list a little lower price than the others that said itís engine had been rebuilt, is this a good or bad sign? I know there can be many issues with the Disco 2 engines so is it good that I found one with an already rebuilt engine? Or should I stay away? Thanks in advance!

Welcome to the forum
All depends on the overall condition of the truck.
Have it checked out thoroughly by someone who knows these trucks (a specialty shop) if possible or at least a good trusted mechanic.
The term “rebuild “can possibly mean different things to different people. -get specific information on what was done and who did it.

Thanks for the welcome and thank you for the input! Iíll definitely get a detailed list of what was done and by who, hoping it al checks out as the rest of the vehicle looks to be in great shape!
