Bill, do like Ho did, and remove those hideous flares.
The D2 looks so much nicer without them!

Oh man... I was hoping someone had an alternative to the plastic pice of junk that fails wayyyy too often.. If you go that low on the thermostat your heaters not gonna be as warm.!!

There is a mod people do that lets you use a conventional thermostat.

What? No the temp is the same as D1 and D90. The higher temp on the gas DII was for emissions and mpg nothing else.

Yes but a higher temp thermostat is going to give you a more efficient heating system in the cold weather

I had no idea but I have honestly never paid much attention to the DII tech sections lol. I just knew that everyone recommend the genuine thermostat

So been driving it around a lot the last few days. I'm definitely going to have to look over the front right caliper, it seems to be sticking a bit. Probably from sitting. It needs a headlight on the passenger side the lens is broke from a rock strike.

The prop shaft will be here monday so that will be tackled that night as long as it's not raining. Along with that a oil change will get done.

In the winter I usually use 5w40 shell rotella and warmer months the 15w40 in my older rovers any reason this won't work for the DII?

Next I need to start trouble shooting the SAI code, that I was warned about.

I hate to say this, but over the last few days I think I've come to understand why people really like the DII. I've never been a Disco fan but this one really has me rethinking that.

My first Land Rover was a 2000 Disco 2 and I will always have a place in my heart for them.

We bought a 99.5 Disco 2 back in 2000 and loved it for years. That vehicle had the best interior out of any other SUV we have had. Just a great mix of comfort and looks and driving position. The light tan leather held up surprisingly well even with 2 small kids and a dog.

Just think the engine and electronics are the main downfalls. Would be interesting to see what a GM LS conversion would be like in a D2.

It would probably be pretty sweet with a LS conversion, and a bit more economical. The cost of the kit to do it though is a bit prohibitive
