Should I really?

All,

I currently have an 87 RR V8 EFI, she is getting a bit tatty now and things
like the upper tail gate are gonna need to be replaced soon.

Ive seen parked down the road a H reg 3.5 V8 EFI dicso for 1300 and 98000
on the clock.

It looks in good nick etc, but do i really want to change from a ranige to a
disco.

I only use my landrovers for playing in, and the rangie has a 2inch lift.

If i did get the disco, would i be able to swap the lift from the rangie? Do
they have the same running gear as each other?

Mark

87RR V8 EFI #DA301

Good price - check the rear floor for rot and also rear body mountings can
get iffy. If manual, check for gearbox play - 's just cost me a grand for a
recon box, new T-box gear and fitting for mine. 98K is OK on the engine if
it's been serviced regularly. Mine's currently on 108K and (touches wood)
seems to be running nicely - it didn't have FSH as such when I got it, but
had quite a good history even so.

The disco is in some ways more practical.

should be able to, yeah. running gear is pretty much identical - my disco,
for example, sports RR front springs and 90 rear springs :-)
