Land Rover Discovery XD - 20th Anniversary

All,

I'm feeling inspired tonight, so I want to get this out there.

Next year is the 20th anniversary of the Land Rover Discovery XD. While this may not be a big deal to most of you (yes, I know it's just an SD with Yellow paint), but to me as an owner of one, I'm really excited about the possibilities. I thought it would be great to try and put together as much information as possible in one place about the XD, including the 1996 TReK trucks. I'm not sure what form it will take, maybe a website, a brochure, a pdf, I don't know, but I do know that it will be fun to gather all the information available, as well as known trucks and the owners (if they are willing) to share their stories and where the rigs are and how many are left.

If you are the owner of an XD, have ever owned one in the past, or just know a thing or two about the trucks that would be of interested to the Land Rover community, please send me a note and I'll gather it up as I go. You can reply to this thread, PM me, or send an email to the address below. My hope is to have something completed early next year to properly celebrate the 20th anniversary, maybe even culminating in a meet-up somewhere!

I hope the results are a fun bit of history, and I look forward to hearing about the XD in more detail!

Thanks,
Joey

I had one for a while. I may be able to look up where it is now, but hard to say.

It was highly modified. I think I once calculated that the previous owner had spent over $40k on bolt-on upgrades alone, let alone the upkeep.

I have copies of the magazine articles someplace.....

Yes, I remember seeing your truck at the PDX ABFM a few years back. In fact, I think it was one of the first I saw in person, and loved the yellow!

Anything you can contribute would be greatly appreciated, thanks!

I picked up one earlier this year. Has a few leaks but all in all is in pretty good shape!

I'm interested!

So I don't have the originals, I think I passed them on to the new owner with the truck. But I did find the pics I took of the brochure and the magazines my XD was in. Here is the original brochure I had:

Thanks RB! I do have copies of those brochures, it's nice to have a clean digital file as well.

Now that the new year is here, and I have a bit more time to think about this, I've created a Facebook page, as it seems easiest for now.

If you own an XD, or ever have, share about it here: https://www.facebook.com/landroverdiscoveryxd/
