      It's expensive if you don't have a lift and not working on it yourself. The gas tank needs to come out.

      But yeah, D2s aren't worth their scrap metal now days. All the engines are doomed to fail sooner or later.

      Thank you both for your help! I found a D1 so hopefully this will be a better lead.

      Looks like a nice stock example. Hope the pickup went smoothly.

      The color is called "willow green" Came on 97 Disco's and the 97 LE Defenders. IIRC it also came on earlier RRC's..

      So this happened last weekend while running Gold Mountain down here in socal at SCLR's annual event:



      Ended up having to winch myself up the waterfall where it broke and then up one other obstacle later on on the trail. Managed to limp it the 90 miles home from Big Bear with the CDL locked. Wasn't really heartbroken as I had an ARB setup sitting in a third in a bucket in the garage waiting to install. This gave me the motivation to get off my duff and install it.

      iv owned my 1999 D2 sins febuary, put about 7k miles on it sins then. i want to take the green coolant out and flush the system well with water and put in the G12. found online that the G12 is for freelander, discovery and defender 1998 and up. the G12 works so well in my 2000 jetta 2.0L motor with 234k miles on it. so figured id try and keep to one coolant in the garage for both cars. anyone use G12 in there Discovery?

      or what do most of you use?

      Thanks!

      Originally Alpine White. Some previous owner had it painted. Definitely an improvement!

      Sort of off topic.. but I wanted to say this.

      I know we pick on Land Rovers for electrical issues and other things, but these were actually built way better than I expected.
      Coworker was in a bad crash this week in his 99 Discovery II.
      Lady pulled out right in front of him on the highway Wednesday morning.
      The entire front of the Disco is destroyed.. but he is fine.. bruised and sore, but fine (which is surprising as he is getting old and older people can more easily get injured).
      This is the 3rd one his family has totaled.
      Several years ago the family was out in an ice storm and slid off a bridge, landed roof down in a creek.
      It wasn't a huge drop (+-12 feet), but it was a drop.
      The roof did not crush at all... they had some injuries just do to the harsh impact forces and seat-belts, but the roof held strong.
      Oh, the other total was a red light runner and that Disco also held strong (the 1st one they had probably 10 years ago).

      So... call me impressed.
      These were truly built strong (for the time).
      And even tho he has had to fix some things, the green one he just totaled was over 200k miles.

      Yeah.
      He ordered a new torque converter for the 03 Ranger Rover now... to get that back to good running condition and drive it as a DD.
      Hopefully it works well once back to dd status.
