Re: 8274 onto a disco 300tdi
does the 8274 compare in size with the Superwinch Husky?
If it does (apart from the significantly increased height of the 8274) then
I guess you can fit it on a Disco.
Camel Trophy evented 200 and 300 Tdi Discos were fitted with Husky winches
but the winch mount used is NO LONGER available in the UK.
But it can be reproduced here in Greece if you are interested.
