That is a tough call. The Toyota has an awful lot going for it which makes me wonder why he is selling it after spending money on new tires (min of $1000). It is tempting except for my biggest reason for telling you to buy the LRD2. It gas 243,000 miles. The second reason I would buy the LDR2 is that it is 7 years newer and untouched.I found a new post for a super clean LRD2 near me and I have my eyes on a 4runner that already has the mods I want. What do you guys think?
1st: 1997 Toyota 4runner
- brand new 33” K02 all terrain tire (5)
- 2” lift - Arb front bumper
- Warn winch never used and just needs to be wired up and have everything required
-4 led lights on two separate toggles
2nd: 2004 Land Rover Discovery SE7
Looks super clean, with really low mileage. 7 passenger is a little turn down for my as I would prefer to have the extra cargo space.
The LDR2 is twice as nice to drive with shear luxury. I have never drive anything that matches an LDR2.The seats are not a problem because they fold away or can be removed which most people do. I have the five seater and the compartments in the back are not that great to have. You"ll actually have more space when the seats are removed than I have. Just get it checked out mechanically by a competent mechanic, that advise is for any auto you might by.
LRD2's have aluminum body's so there is never any rust on the exterior. The floor and frame is where you look for rust that your mechanic can verify. So , I say yes to the LDR2
