La Aduana: 2004 Disco II, 4.6L Manual

It’s no secret I have a duplicitous relationship with the Land Rover Discovery II. As much as I loathe them, I love them. I liken it to Stockholm Syndrome. Once you’ve been captured by a Discovery II, no gross indignity can turn you away. Knowing it would likely break my heart, and my finances, I would love to own this highly modified Disco. At first blush, the $30,000 asking price seems smirk-worthy, bordering in insulting, but a closer look reveals a list of expensive modifications as long as your arm.
