If your Land Rover has 200,000 miles (321,868 km) on its ORIGINAL engine post of picture of your truck and your odometer here.
It does not matter if it is a Discovery Series I or II, or a Range Rover or a Freelander or a Defender, whatever it is if it is a Land Rover with the original engine post it here.

Please do not reply to this so we can try and keep it "clean".

If you have a specific question for the owner of the truck please start a new thread in the "Roaming with friends" section for that person.
I hope to see lots of pictures up here.

1997 Land Rover Discovery Series I.
I am the second owner and it was dealer maintained until I bought it with 152,000 miles on it back in April of 2007.
It has been the second most reliable vehicle I have ever owned and it has the most miles of any vehicle I have ever owned.

Ha, I got one with 197k, and the other with 207.5k.

The later I call "Pookie". I felt it was ironic. Here are some pics of Pookie, who was a Craigslist special that I drove 4.5 hours to get home with no serious issues (had to top off oil, and a transmission bracket fell on the driveshaft and clanked until I put a bungie on it). Pookie cost me 3 digits.





I don't have an odometer pic yet. I'll try to get one soon.

He has a redneck custom bumper, two hella lights, a backup spot light, diff guards, and a 2" lift and adjustable (but rusted) shocks. Has a ladder and a half *** roof rack I'm going to shore up.

He's currently getting his fluids replaced. Then I have to figure out how to get him to pass emissions. ;-) The interior looks like a grenade went off. He has cancer in the usual places. His job is to have fun, and tear though the woods with abandon. :-) If he dies, I have two other rovers that will eat his parts.

And I have to get those damn Chevy stickers off.

Pookie runs like a scalded dog. I'm going to check the timing. It just doesn't seem natural. Especially with 245/75R16s...

So I found out that the low compression 3.9L V8 that came out of a Range Rover and went into my Discovery has right at 200k miles. I was looking at the truck last night at my friends house, and looked at the odometer. It was 191k and some change. I have put 9K miles on my Discovery since I got it, so I'm a hair over 200k. She still runs like a well oiled machine!!!

Well...Emma turned 200k this last weekend, on our way to Onslow Beach. Still running like she was a youngster. Motor and running gear all stock. Have added some exterior parts, but shes basicly a stock disco.

Alrighty, got it all figured out and I got the pictures to prove it.

This is the 1990 Range Rover that my engine came from. I snapped the picture yesterday.

This is the odometer of the Range Rover.

This is the photo of the title to my Discovery showing how many miles were on it when I got it.

And this is a picture of the odometer on my Discovery I took about 15 minutes ago.

So by the power of deduction, I've put 8,570 miles on the engine since it's been installed, and 191,701+8,570 = 200,271

So my engine has 200,271 miles. It's hard to believe, honestly LOL!

And I though I know it's not the original engine, I still think it's pretty sweet that my engine has over 200k, and I can actually verify it.
