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:

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

1.6:1 Transfer case (as opposed to the 1.2:1 stock)
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.
