300 mile and a bit yesterday, all highway, and she is running good . Hope I didn't just jinx it.
All ready have a better awning planned out in my head, for when I get back

This is awesome. I want to buy a cheap one and fix it up too. Will definitely follow along
Careful on the cheap ones , I think I really got lucky on this one. As it was well taken care of otherwise.
All the electric , even the a/c working. Almost no rust.
My only suggestion is do your homework before hand , and unless you are planning a complete rebuild , know definitely what it will take to get it on the road.
There are a lot of great build threads out there for Disco's, but some guys seem to have higher budgets than others .
Also there is a guy in Georgia ( I think) Zombie motors or some such, that can supply a whole outfit for a td5 swap.
That was my alternate plan in case the engine on this was a complete loss.
Good luck

Looks like they are in Oregon now. Perfect. I’m in WA. Hoonigan on youtube also swaps in a Cummins which is pretty cool, but a little more work and more expensive.

But the Cummins is nice because it’s such a reliable engine and it’s brand new with no miles. Man that would be a dream.

I just bought a 2004 Disco in very good shape and have started to build it. How's yours going? It's been a while since you've posted. Is it still running strong?
