A pic of my '99 DII. Did not realize how bad it looked with a snaggletooth bumper (plastic cover pulled off during a Habitat for Humanity job). Just got a new bumper via internet - $859 incl $250 shipping from Cal to Atlanta. But needed it for about five years. Very happy. Have owned this one for almost twenty years and spent the first fifteen getting the bugs out. The only dent is in the driver's door where the wind ripped it out of my hands and made a small dent when the hinge stopped it.

I still love it - today.

Yep, the Kinversand I bought for my son. Was a '99 too and a good truck. Sold it a couple of years ago when he graduated from law school. Need to figure out how to change the avatar to my green one.

Oh I wish I never got rid of my first disco. Would be my most cherished Rover if I still had it, but I traded it in on a D2 back in the day.

Wow, kept it for 20 years while working out bugs! After 14 years I ran out of patience with "bugs" but do miss it a bit.

Can I ask where you bought the bumper from? I'm interested in replacing my stock, busted-up bumper also. $859 incl $250 shipped is a good price.

Thanks,

Sean.

Ok, so it was a used bumper. How great that you found a green one. I would love to find a white one.

I've been looking at some used ones, but I'm worried they'll be brittle like mine and crack easy.

How has it been holding up?

Chances are that all used bumpers will be of comparable brittleness. I would imagine that any “brand new” bumpers were manufactured well over a decade ago and probably aren’t super pliable themselves.

I was livid about how flimsy my stock bumper was. What's wrong with Land Rover? All I did was drive over a small bush, maybe 18" tall, stop, put it in reverse, and back out. The danged bush caught on the plastic bumper and ripped it off. The new used bumper looks to be exactly the same material. Pliable? I think not.

I would never dream of paying retail for one. I’m not in the appropriate tax bracket for that.

love having it though
