It's a DII that was converted to a soft top. From what I remember, it didn't look so pretty...

they usually don't. Classics make great chops, Discos look aborted.

No hard feelings, just the very few I have seen looked odd to me. I rode in Steven Lights way back and it was a nice ride, just looked odd in the back. I think the lines on the classic make it easier to lose the top and not look odd. I have seen some bobbed DIs that looked really cool.

Robbie, would love to see some pics of yours. I've never heard of a chopped D. Intrigued!

Yuck.

couple of pics here (even got Janey!). honestly, i take no offense. at times i find it ugly as well and always keep my eye out for another unmolested truck to balance the world out. the RRCs do come out better and i do love a drop down tailgate.

Was it originally a G4 Discovery in Tangiers Orange or was that done at the time of conversion to soft top? Why is the rear "stepped up" going from the left to the right - is the passenger side not cut down as far as the driver side? Seems odd.

I'll bet it came out of Rocky Mountain Rover didn't it?
