Giverny Green, Black and tan interior
142K miles,
brand new black headliner

Motor was replaced at 130K with a Gems era 4.6 sourced from Randy Williams(1997 I think?) and heads/gaskets/cam were done

Also ran a dedicated constant 12v outlet to the rear for the fridge.

Asking $6950 obo






Black Headliner=brand new

Replace the oil separator in the passenger side valve cover, and that will probably take care of your oil consumption issue, unless its just leaking. Its kind of a pain to do, but it is a really cheap part.

C'mon jimmy there is no more plastic oil seperator after 2002 you should know that. They just used a metal plug in the tube with a small hole.

Its inside of that metal plug with the small hole on it, I just replaced one last week on an '04. I've only replaced them on 03/04's as far as I know.

I might check that Jimmy, but it hasn't been that much of a nuisance to bother with.....yet.

Correct.
I will say, I have wheeled with a few LR3's but Aaron and the LR3 navigated some rock sections that I didn't think were going to be possible.
I was pretty impressed; and I know his ride back to the campsite was a lot more comfortable than mine was in the RR.

If you do end up doing it, which I recommend since its so cheap, send me a PM and I can give you some tips to it easily without damaging the metal tube.

Does it matter that it's a 97 4.6?

It's funny, of all these I've had apart, never seen one under that 03/04 plug before, the plastic tree design always seemed like a bad idea and I assumed the plug itself took its place... but I went out today and took 4 '03s apart to have a look. First 3, nothing. Last one, sure enough there it was. I stand corrected.

I've run them before both ways, on mine I'm not running the oil seperator at all, no leaks. Best I can figure they used the plastic oil seperator as a restriction point in the PCV circuit because it was easier to service/clean/remove than pulling the baffle out of the valve cover.

Land Rover quality control at its best. lol

I guess my loss of oil hasn't been significant enough to prompt me to investigate.

I replaced the crankshaft seal early on because it did leak there.


I'll be honest, I don't really know a lot about D2's.
This one is pretty clean, not great.
It has the scratch on pass front 1/4 and bumper- I'll get close up pics if it gets sunny this week.
Windshield has a dime sized star right in front of the instrument binnacle.
Back of pass front seat has a tear/rip--maybe 3-4 inches? I'll get a picture.
Pass seat doesn't tilt?? reclines, goes fore and aft but no tilt.
Undercarriage looks great---I doubt this truck ever left pavement.

Any questions? Just ask--I'll tell you what I know.

Now I AM pretty sure all 03 and 04 are this way. Note there is less arrows on the seat switch button, and less motors in the seat base than on the other side.

I am stripping one with matching seats right now, if someone buys this truck and pays whatever the shipping cost is (wont be bad) I will give you the undamaged passenger seat back... but I need to know pretty soon so I can make sure it doesn't head for the crusher



ALSO selling points
- no ugly fender flares
- rear AC
- CDL!

and by far the biggest plus is that the 4.6L blocks installed in the 03 and 04 trucks are failing left and right, this one has been replaced with an earlier block which makes it more reliable (this alone is several thousand bucks worth of work that has already been taken care of!)

Can you explain that. It doesn't make sense to me. My 110 pickup trade offer has intrigued Jeff.

Yeah, let me try again, with slightly different terminology.

The seatback on his truck has ripped leather. I have a seatback that does not have ripped leather. Jeff's truck is nice and deserves to be fixed but new leather is expensive. The seatback can be changed pretty easily rather than reupholstering the existing one. Rather than let my good seatback sit here and mildew or eventually find its way to the crusher, I will be happy to pull it and send it to the new owner, if they cover the shipping.

Better?

Do you mean the very rear, like the 7 seat versions?

I've got a 5 seater 03 and it has latch in the back:
