    Let's be honest, you prefer your Range Rovers burnt to a crisp on the side of the road...

                  94 was the first year in the US. 94 and 95 are by far the most basic of them all and probably the most problem free. With that said they are the most utilitarian. Great trail trucks but as far as comfort, convenience, and power they are down. They have the 3.9 V8 with a distributor.

                  96 to early 99 saw huge changes for the D1. The rover V8 got the GEMS efi system also gaining the 4.0 designation, more creature comforts and luxuries, more horsepower. Still great trail trucks, bit more problematic engine wise.

                  Late 99 to 02 got the Discovery 2. These trucks are longer, more roomy, and much more comfortable than the previous Discovery 1. These trucks while capable, were less trail savvy than it's predecessor. Things in the D1, like all electrics mounted high for water fording were now mounted low. BMW was in ownership at this time, and with that came Bosch management to the V8. early trucks had the CDL transfer box, but lacked the linkage. CDL swaps on early D2's are pretty straight forward. Later trucks had a different transfer box entirely. Land rover believed CDL wasn't necessary with their improvements with traction control.

                  With 2003 came a huge change. Trucks got a facelift and got the 4.6 out of the Range Rover, improved brake calipers were also introduced. They go more creature comforts on the inside and more features on the outside. These trucks are plagued with oiling issues and are common to see low mileage trucks needing replacement engines.

                  In 2004 the CDL box was introduced back into the Discovery as customers were complaining. Oiling issues with the 4.6 were fixed, but due to old, worn molds in the factory, the engine blocks were cast with poor tolerances and these trucks suffer with porous blocks, and slipping cylinder liners. Still 2004 is the most sought after year of the D2.

                  Keep in mind these trucks have aluminum bodies, but steel chassis. Won't rust on the outside but will on the inside. Rust likes to form on the rear arches, rear cargo door area, rear floor, and around the roof windows.

                      LOL! What's funny is that I always wanted a Land Cruiser, and yet here I am.
