A Wonderful 4X4! If one can handle it!

My 1996 Land Rover Discovery SE7 has
been and continues to be a wonderfully
enjoyable vehicle! I have put nearly
80,000 miles on mine in a lttle over a
year and it has been there everytime I
needed it. Its capable four-wheel
drive got myself and three other
friends out of Ft. Worth, Texas this
past Feburary during the terrible ice
storm that hit the area and back to
Georgia without a scratch while many
other vehicles had a hard time. It has
plenty of room for the equipment,
animals, and friends that are usually
found with me. Just a great vehicle!
I love all the head and footroom! I
really love the dual moonroofs on my
particular vehicle. It rides like a
luxury sedan onroad, and irons out the
ruts offroad. With large, 4-wheel anti-
lock disc brakes, I have no problem
stopping even in the worst weather.
A little more power in proportion to
the weight of the vehicle. At nearly
6000 pounds, the little 188 H.P. 4.0L
V-8 has plenty of low end torque, but
no "pep." A nice diesel would help
this little vehicle greatly.
All I can say, this vehicle isn't for
