Rock Sliders. I would say as important as suspension. Perhaps this is Colo bias. With your new lift & new tires you will definately be straddling some obsticles, rolling over moguls, etc. Plus they provide a solid jacking point for your Hi-Lift. You'll find your stock jack relatively useless off-road, and relatively useless on road w/ lift & larger tires. Also get a solid rear recovery point--shackle bracket that fits in your stock tow hitch. Those would be my 1st two recommendations (other than those which you already mentioned) for Discos. Oh,,,and a good tow strap. :D You can get the shackle at www.roversnorth.com Also check out www.get-rhino.com (a proud sponsor of this forum), www.rovertym.com , www.safarigard.com ,,, there are many others. Personally I have begun tol avoid Atlantic British due to high prices. Many others here will have solid recommendations & advice. Welcome to wheelin' in a Disco! :drink1:

Hey bud...like SCSL said, welcome to the fam! A Hi-Lift is a good accessory. Along with the sliders, you'll have a solid lift point, and the Hi-Lift can also be used as a winch. I just got BF Goodrice All-Terrains and they are fantastic on-road, still havent tested them off-road. If you're going to be goin off-road/camping a lot, i suggest you start saving money for a roof-rack. I'm preparing for one (my first one with my Disco) and I'm discovering that I'll be tying up a whole lot to my stock rack because the space in the cargo area isnt all that!

Hailsharky, keep in mind that autos are released mid year before their "model" year. So his 99 would have been released in the fall (maybe even summer) of 98. Mid-1999 to 2000 are when the Series IIs begin. Looks like a blue to me by the way :wave:

I think if I would have found this wensite forum earlier on I would already have one bad ass land rover.

You guys are a plethora of knowledge.
I ask as many question of my LR mechanic as I can everytime I bring it in, but that is not very often.
Thanks for the info. I figured it was a typo. Looks like he bought the last year of the series I. Im learning something new everyday here.

Actually its epsom green (I think thats the name) I took the pic with a 7 megapixel camera then had to shrink it significantly. By the way...Instead of trading up to a 2004 my local dealer had as a service loaner, I bought a 1999 Range Rover SE instead. Its got 79K on it and looks brand new, best part is, still under warranty for 21K miles and I feel I got a heck of a deal at $12,500. My Rover addiction is getting out of control, but when you are 22 with your first "real" job, what else is the money going to go towards. HA HA HA.

Rocks...In South Carolina, I Wish

Love the advice, actually I am already looking into sliders mostly for the jack point, but in south carolina, it is almost certain I wont need them off-road, However I just came back from Tellico in NC and it gets crazy up there, saw the rock garden get the best of a 4runner, had to be 5K worth of damage. Where are "rover runs" in the east coast? Thanks again for the advice.

Yeah Tellico looks INSANE! I'm not to down on east coast trails but I'm sure some east coasters on here can recommend some for ya. I'm sure there's a Rover club in SC too. Good luck!
