1999 Discovery SD - $16,500 - Chawton White

1999 Discovery SD
Chawton White
133...k

$16,500
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Exterior: The vehicle is in excellent condition. No frame rust. Two small bits of rust at the top of the rear door wells. Body is in excellent condition with only one (1) small knuckle size ding on the hood (I have to search for where it is).

Interior: Interior is in great condition. Carpet shows little sign of wear. Rear seat is near mint (currently not in but can/ will be installed). Front passenger seat shows little sign of wear. Driver’s seat has some wear with one small 1" tear in one of the seams. Middle console is in excellent condition and has DII cup holders. Dash is in excellent condition. Headliner is excellent.

The devil is in the details with this truck. The HAM radio install is one of a kind. The radio face is installed in the sunroof delete panel. The actual radio is installed on a custom cut piece of starboard that is located under the drivers dash panel. The 12 circuit blue sea fuse box is located there as well. All marine wiring. In additon, the HAM radio anteanna mount is a motorized mount with a custom designed and profesionally produced fuse panel (Chris Snell) to enable the use of a LR factory binnacle switch. This switch is located in the factory position and uses the cruise controll switch. When engaged, the antenna raises. When depressed (while moving through trees or other low-hanging debris) the antenna lowers.


The rack flooring is made from one solid sheet of 1/2" starboard. To do this I made a mould to heat and gradually bend the starboard to fit the contour of the SD rack. All of the lines and edges are routered to 1/4 for a smooth appearance. There are several access holes cut in the starboard to allow for gear storage. Specifically, 1-2 Pelican 1650 cases on the rear and 2 bundles of firewood on the front of the rack. Your individual gear needs will vary but will be met with the design. The flooring is secured with 35+ 1/4-20 SS screws which secure to 1/4-20 heavy duty well-nuts. This ensures the starboard *sits* 1/4 from the rack and does not make any noise. In addition, the well nuts seal out moisture from the SD.

What the truck includes for $16,500:

Mantec snorkel
3in HD RTE springs
3in OME sport shocks
RTE castor corrected arms
RTE rear links
Expedition Exchange rear spring isolators top and bottom
Expedition Exchange rear -2 shock drop mount

I forgot to mention one of the best things about this truck - the storage.

The storage spans the entire length of the rear cargo up to the edge of the passenger footwell. It's made out of 3/4" Russian Baltic birch and covered with heavy duty outdoor carpet. There are 4 12" in strips of quick release/ macs tie downs. This allows for the storage of 3 standard Wedco cans and one can stack 1-4 pelican 1600's. When the storage isn't in use, the rear seats can be fitted as there are both foot and seatbelt access holes. So, you always have as much storage as a DI can provide with the option of carrying your kids to get ice cream. The flooring is secured with 4 grade 12 button cap screws and are backed with a 3/16 backing plate each.

The drawer is a recent addition and is made mostly of Baltic birch, however, I chose to use a starboard floor to eliminate any sticky or messy food items from destroying carpet. The starboard makes clean-up of these items very easy. The drawer is finished with a black marine pull latch.

The right side of the storage has my "kitchen" pelican semi hard-mounted with 4 1/4-20 stainless button head screws which fasten to 4 tee-nuts. This makes quick stops really nice as one doesn't have to fuss with straps or other tie-down items.

To the left of the fridge (fridge and pelican are NOT included) is a tidy space for a powertank 10-15lb. The powertank mount is fastened to a piece of starboard which is fastened to the interior DI structure using 1/4-20 riv-nuts and stainless button head screws.
