Our Disco 2 came with the Original Air Suspension. If you are reading this you are likely aware this suspension will be a problem or already is having issues. We replaced the Air system with Coil suspension. We had to go through two Stuts, our first Brit Part Struts failed and we replaced again with Terrafirma. While going through suspension upgrades we found a squeak that was slightly driving us crazy, we finally figured out the cause and it was an easy fix! I’ve summarized the suspension process and steps taken below.
As I started to think about what we have done to the interior of our Disco 2 it didn’t seem like a lot at first. But then making a list showed me how all the little things seemed to add up.

Factory lights are okay, but aftermarket lights make life brighter!
We wanted additional lights for the back-country and we are glad we did! We replaced the standard headlights, covers and added 6 more lights to the bumper.

Overlanding is about the journey and can be to any destination and in any vehicle. I love the unlimited and open feeling about overland adventures. Our adventures have changed over the past 4 years as we have had a family but we have made adjustments to our vehicle set up and lifestyle to accommodate our new reality. In order to go on our skiing, biking, hiking, climbing and camping adventures we need the space to carry our gear. Sometimes it is a lot of gear! We describe what racks and boxes have worked well for our vehicle and family size.
We bought our 2001 Land Rover Discovery ii SE in 2011, no upgrades or accessories had been added. There are many functional upgrades to do on a Land Rover Discovery 2 that end up looking really solid (in our opinion).
Keep reading to see what worked and what didn’t.

We love our Land Rover, it has become a part of our family. Our Land Rover takes us to our outdoor destinations and the drive is usually it’s own adventure. We are grateful to be able to explore with a vehicle that has the ability to get off-road and see places many people don’t have access to. Our love for our Land Rover is partially due to the sweat, blood and tears we have poured into it. The most significant issue we have had is the engine. Here is how we made our Land Rover’s heart work again.
