Murph Hi

there was an article in one of the LR related magazines sometime ago about
bobtailing a Disco.
They said it did make a remarkable difference on retreat angle.

Take care

If I recall that article the car in question had about 10" cut off the
chassis, had the alpine lights removed, the rear quarterlights removed
and the tailgate replaced by a stiffened fibreglass one with no window.
I think the fuel tank was shortened rather than relocated.
