    I have been wanting to get my hands on an FJ40 for a while now, and so i have decided to put my Disco up for sale. I don't have enough money to buy the FJ so i have to sell one to get the other. Anyway, i thought some of you guys would be sympathetic to my problem. Here goes:

    Good Stuff:

    Engine & Drivetrain
    1996 Disco SD (white, stripped down, cloth seats, no power seats, no sunroofs)
    4.0 V8 (138k, heads done at 72k, doesn't use any oil)
    5-Speed Manual Tranny (1 of 230 in country, put in new clutch etc.. at 120k, New Transmission with less than 1000 miles)
    1.6:1 Transfer case (as opposed to the 1.2:1 stock)
    Rear Driveshaft has ujoints (no rubber coupling)
    Front Disco II shaft
    Moser Enginneering Axle shafts in rear
    Detroit Locker rear
    ARB Locker front
    Ashcroft inner axles 24/27 spline
    110 CV joints (AEU2522)

    Suspension & Armor

    Other goodies

    Flowmaster Muffler
    PIAA undercarriage ligts
    Blaupunkt 3" speakers in front door, 6x9s in rear cargo area and new 6.5" mids in rear door
    Rear Ladder
    Waterproof Seat Covers (worn)

    Sits on 35x12.50 Mud Kings with 15x8 AR Steel Wheels (set of 5)

    Minor issues:
    P/S Pump whines (may need replaced)
    Factory Sway bars are removed because they won't fit with lift
    There are a few dents and dings nothing terrible
    Wheelwells were trimmed approx. 2" for tires
    Headliner is starting to sag
    Rear door has to be lifted while closing
    Check Engine is on because the Cats are shot ( i don't have inspection here so i didn't worry about it)
    Cruise Control doesn't work
    Typical Land Rover oil leaks, but nothing major

    I would love to get $8500 for it or a trade on a cruiser and cash. Here is one pic, more can be sent via email if needed. Email me WBDISCO@hotmail.com or call (423) 762-5012 located in near Monteagle, TN

    Thanks.

    This is the high range ratio, what is the low range ratio? Is it still stock or is it lower?

    That is a very good looking Disco! I just sold my 97 about 2 weeks ago, and I have to admit I kinda miss it.

    Good luck selling it! You will love the 40 once you get one.

    The 1.6:1 is from the deisel Defenders. It only effects the high-range, so the truck runs really well with 35s on road. The low range is uneffected

    One last thing. If the cruise control is the same as a 97, you may have a problem with the vacuum line. My wipers and cruise control wouldn't function properly, and the vacuum line was replaced, and the problem was solved.
