What's up with that carpet. Looks like someone stole it from a pontoon boat.

Wow, $44,500k for a 04 Disovery that looks a lot like any other modified discovery? What's so special about it? You used Rovertym suspension products, Great Basin drive shafts and axles, ARB lockers, BFG MTs, dual Optima batteries, X9 Superwinch, Safari Guard stuff, Cobra 75WX ST CB and a Kenwood HAM, etc. etc. etc. Was that truck built for a specific purpose, or did you go "grocery shopping" for all the popular aftermarket items available? That truck is built like all the other trucks on DWeb, except it hasnt been wheeled, or really driven at all. I hope you get what you ask for.

Unfuck the defender 110 that you bought, but please dont do bolt on a bunch of stuff like you did to that poor 04 Disco.

The Discovery was built for my purposes. I am crazy for fly fishing and I built the truck to get me to some of the most remote location in the Sierras and other parts. I never wheeled it hard and therefore it as clean as it is. The low milage is because I live where I work on a farm and while I use it everyday I don't add up the miles like most do. I used it every month or couple months to break away from civilization and go up into the mountains in search of goldens or just with the family. I am fortunate that I was able to build it with no real limitations in terms of budget and that now gets to be someone's gain. I worked with some of the best in the industry and pieced together what is really a tried and true collection of tasteful accessories that actually work. This truck is not for the casual Land Rover enthusiast who bolts on accessories as his pay check comes in. This is for someone just like me who has a clear idea as to what he wants to do with the truck and says I can buy this and save tons of time, money, and hassle from having to buy all of this stuff new and be very close to what they had in mind. The truck is essentially a well sorted, ridiculously clean and low milage example of a Discovery.

As for my 110, I too have a clear idea as to what I want to do with it and yes it will be tasteful.

Thank you...I think.

Congrats on the 110 and the Discovery really is beautiful. However, that price would be totally unprecedented for a Discovery, even if it is a 2004. I doubt too many banks would finance that, given what the book value is on a 2004 Discovery.

As a casual observer, there have been a few VERY nice D90's for sale over the past years with that level of kit on them for less money. And, they're D90's. JP's rig comes to mind:

I agree the disco is nice, but I also agree the price is steep.
I got a 04 D2 with 33K miles two years ago for 13K.
Put HLC Fab steel front and rear bumper, sliders,
ARB shocks and springs and I got a great D2 for around
15K.

Typical.

This is straight out of the Manual for Build Builders.

You have:

1. An over-the-top truck with every possible accessory crammed on it.

2. The build blog. Now everybody can subscribe to the RSS feed to follow the build. Twitter feed coming soon.

3. Serial building. The only purpose of the build is to be built. Once the build is finished, it is no longer exciting to the owner and is summarily dumped.

4. A truck with a name. It's not an 04 Disco, it's the DiscoNomad. It's not a D110, it's the NomaD110.

5. Over-inflated sense of what this truck is. This isn't a 2004 Disco like all of the other builds on DWeb. It's not a hack-job filled with car computers, kustom wire harnesses, etc. It's the best Disco ever.

6. A functional build. He didn't slap all of this stuff on the truck because it was fun to buy or because it looked good in the campus parking lot back in San Antonio. He did it for the function. It's all about getting to the fly fishing sites, guys. The ones you can't get to in your stock Disco.

7. Despite the fact that he's dumping it on eBay, he claims that he won't let this truck go to just anybody. You have to deserve the DiscoNomad.

I can't wait to see what he does with the 110. Please let me know when you get the twitter account going.

If I had unlimited money to throw into a D2 I would build one exactly like his, but for $30,000 less. For some reason people that have this higher than thou view of themselves and their trucks really bother me.

And here you are talking about his other thread about a vehicle for sale, not pertaining to the thread to which you are posting. It is nice of you to not flame his for sale thread like others are doing, but come on...
