FS: 1996 Land Rover Discovery SD7

Well I really hate to do this, but I need to sell my 1996 Land Rover Discovery SD7. My work hours have been cut and my commute is up to 55 miles a day due to a recent move. I just canít justify/afford having three 4x4 vehicles anymore, so this one has to go.

This Disco has been one of the most enjoyable vehicles Iíve ever had. Itís very comfortable and drives extremely smooth! Itís also been one of the most reliable vehicles Iíve ever had; been driving it to work every day with no problems whatsoever. It also does NOT leak! It is a California truck with NO rust anywhere. The truck currently has only 102,000 miles on it. It is an SD model with no sunroofs and no power seats.
Iíve done a lot of preventative maintenance and upgrades to the truck also, mainly because I planned on keeping it for a long time, and the fact that Iím a bit OCD . It runs and drives perfectly! I wouldnít hesitate driving this truck anywhere.


What has been done:
  • ~87,000 miles: Defender brake upgrade with New calipers, pads, and rotors. New rear pads. New Genuine Fuel Pump. New Water pump with coolant flush.
  • ~89,000 miles: New Sears Diehard Platinum battery ($175.00), New Kingsborne 8mm spark plug wires ($35). New power steering fluid. Change front and rear differential oils to Mobil 1 synthetic gear oil. Added magnetic drain plugs to diffs. Change transfer case oil.
  • ~90,000 miles: New Bilstein shocks ($350), New engine oil cooler lines ($110), Change engine oil -15/40 Rotella. New fuel filter. Rebuilt rear driveshaft with new rotoflex and U-joint. New rear suspension ball joint. Fresh one-shot grease in swivel housings.
  • ~93,500 miles: New Cooper AT3 tires -215/85R-16 ($800) with new Defender steel wheels ($430) and Genuine Steel lug nuts ($60). Change engine oil -15/40 Rotella. New spark plugs. Transmission drain & fill with Mobil 1 synthetic ATF.
  • ~94,000 miles: Complete cooling system flush and overhaul; all new radiator and heater hoses, new thermostat, new coolant reservoir and cap, and brass radiator plug. New motor mounts.
  • ~97,000 miles: Change engine oil Ė 15/40 Rotella
  • ~98,500 miles: New Terrafirma heavy duty steering rods with new tie rod ends ($200). New OEM rear springs ($100). New pan hard bar bushings. 5 tire rotation. Front end alignment. New OEM mud flaps.
  • ~100500 miles: Change engine oil Ė 15/40 Rotella. Transmission drain & fill with Mobil 1 synthetic ATF.


Iím probably missing a few things in my list, but as you can see Iíve done a lot to the truck. Its ready to go, nothing is needed!

Can you explain the Defender brake upgrade? I've only heard of Defender owners doing Discovery brake upgrades.

The Defender calipers are larger and more powerful than the stock D1 calipers. Here is a pic I found on discoweb:

Zack the later defender uses a vented front rotor and much larger caliper than the disco. Disco rear disc brakes are an upgrade for early 90's that had drum rears.

No, but I actually live right down the street from Cowles Mtn. Pictures were taken at a cemetery off of Willow Glenn in El Cajon
