04 Discovery II 'Drover' connecticut

Long story short, I bought this rig from Drew at the end of last fall. This disco is nothing short of amazing, overcomes anything you put in its way with ease and built with an open checkbook. I also have an 03 Disco, however the cannibal v8 in Drover is day and night difference when driving around....thing is a absolute beast! I'd love to keep it but unfortunately my priorities have changed and i'm putting Drover back on the market for someone else to enjoy

2004 Discovery SE7 (body has about 185k miles, motor has about 6k miles). This is a trail truck but drives real nice and smooth on the street. Has minor scratches as expected on a rig of this age, most can be buffed out but I say it gives it character. There is a dent by the left taillight and one on the hood. The CEL light is on due to the cat cut outs and o2 deletes, does not affect performance. I just had a new key fob made at the stealership. Also the brakes pads have about 7mm left and will need to be done in the near future.

Here is his build thread: 04' DII build - Expedition Portal
As you can see its a well put together rig.

Here was the ad when I purchased it: 04' DII for trade......SOLD!! - Expedition Portal!!

Yeah, honestly haven't taken it out as much as I'd like and the misses hates it considering she's only 5'1. Got the green light on potentially getting a new TRD Pro 4Runner, so now I can break things under a factory warranty

Hope this helps

He's referring to the axle side which have also been modified.

This truck used to have a panhard rear before the galvy frame went in, looks like he went back to cranked arms

Looks like the pads have been pushed up to keep the tires out of the body. Maybe around 3" of bump as it sits. What's the front like?
