Forgot watts link, and plastic rear bumper. Add those to the list.

If you demand more comfort without getting a D3, get a D2.

I've had good experiences with both my D2's. For a DD or light trail duty a D2 is great, for a dedicated wheeler a D1 is probably the ticket. I definitely ran into some limitations with my built D2 - the rear overhang, CV's and watts linkage.

I bought my first Disco when it was 3 yrs old and had 60 ish on it. I paid like 13 grand if I remember. Defenders already had climbed in price cause it was a couple yrs since they stopped bringing them to the states. So by that time people could sell a defender for more than they paid for it new. I think people hoped the Disco would hold its value like that but it didn't. I told a guy I would buy a Disco when they got closer to 10 grand. He said I was going to be waiting a long time for that. But that was the year I got a Disco for close to 10

Couple months later (new lights , same bumper) going ~35mph in rush hour a lady in the right lane decides I don't exist and tries to switch into mine. I all but stop to keep from hitting her and BANG, I get smoked from behind by some other lady.

Bumper I think had another little cut, but pretty much fine, so i replace the lights & basically another free $800 from her insurance.

So, yeah, they're plastic, but they're pretty tough and pay well
