I have a new hobby and a whole lot of other things going on. Time to let the 'ole mall crawler go.
2004 D2

Mechanically, nothing at all out of line. When something breaks, I fix it. Cosmetically, there are a few dings but nothing major. I live in Houston and she still gets parked in the front row at the Valet.

I have done some state park trails/off-road parks in Marble Falls, she has probably been on the trails for a cumulative week since I have owned her. Never anything punishing, no mud.

Everything works. Sunroofs are operational and weather tight, I recently changed the headliner and sealed all of the drains. Interior is clean and tight.

I have addressed everything that is likely to give you any problems for a good long time, nothing was skipped over for convenience or expense... I had been planning to keep the truck indefinitely.

120,xxx miles


There are a whole bunch of pics here.
Not interested in trades or owner financing.

Just uploaded a bunch of new pictures. Should give you a good idea of the truck.

No it wasn't.

This is a direct copy and paste of my personal log.

I was going through the log a couple months back and missed the December entry, which was the correct one.
I added the line into the Feb log entry.

I fixed the drain plastic that met the metal drain tube with 3M Marine epoxy. Won't have to worry about the headliner again.

Also wanted to point out that I put in a BRAND NEW Wabco ABS modulator in late 2011.

Not a lot that hasn't been done.

I am willing to drive the truck to meet you anywhere in the lower 50. If you're way out there maybe we could meet half way.

I know this price is a bit higher than the $5,000 trucks that are in line for a gasket job, shuttle valve problems, interiors that haven't been meticulously repaired to new, but if you're in the market for a turn-key truck that has all of the boxes checked- I believe this is the right truck and a fair price. I am certainly not getting all my money out of the work that I have into it.

Please feel free to ask any questions.

The truck was sold due to the eBay listing. I would certainly have donated to DiscoWeb had it sold from interest here.

I'll miss you guys. I'm sure I will eventually be back to toy Land Rovers... I think a D90
