Land Rover Genuine Parts Magnetic Drain Plug

Land Rover Genuine Parts Magnetic Drain Plug (FTC5208) $11

Quantity Add to cart

Replace your standard drain plugs with the Magnetic Drain Plug. The Magnetic Drain Plugs come standard on the Disco2, but also fit the front and rear differentials on Land Rover vehicles with solid axles such as the Defenders, Disco1, and Range Rover Classic. A powerful magnet on the tip collects metal particles inside the axle and prevents these particles from causing additional wear to the differential, gears, and bearings contained within the axle. More importantly, the presence or absence of metallic particles on the drain plug at service time gives visible indication of possible problems with the drivetrain components.

Land Rover Genuine Parts Steel Wheel Chock

The Steel Wheel Chock is standard fitment on the LR3. LR3 owners have enjoyed having the Steel Wheel Chocks. It's about time all Land Rover owners enjoyed the benefits of this compact and useful device.

Land Rover Genuine Parts Steel Wheel Chock

Unlike the steel wheel chocks that were standard on pre-Disco2 Land Rovers, the new Steel Wheel Chock is very compact and even two Steel Wheel Chocks take up very little space inside the storage areas of your vehicle. This is how the Wheel Chock is normally stored, so it takes up minimal space.

Land Rover Genuine Parts Steel Wheel Chock

Here is the Steel Wheel Chock in the open and locked position.

Land Rover Genuine Parts Steel Wheel Chock

Here is the Steel Wheel Chock set up for use. Simply slide it against your tire and kick it in place. It will prevent your vehicle from rolling and greatly enhance safety while your vehicle is lifted. We recommend two Wheel Chocks be used, one on each side of the wheel being chocked.

Land Rover Genuine Parts Steel Wheel Chock Land Rover Genuine Parts Steel Wheel Chock

To fold the Steel Wheel Chock for storage, simply hinge closed the locking flap and hinge the entire unit closed. The Steel Wheel Chocks are so small and lightweight that it is very easy to store two of them inside your vehicle, so there's no excuse for not having two inside your vehicle at all times.

Land Rover Genuine Parts Road Hazard Triangle

Another way to increase safety while you are changing your tires is to display the Road Hazard Triangle behind your vehicle when you are parked on the side of the road. The triangle is made from polymer, and features highly reflective panels along the triangle's perimeter and a bright orange triangle within the body. Land Rover Genuine Parts recommends placing the Road Hazard Triangle 100 meters behind your parked vehicle so as to give traffic better notice that you are parked on the side of the road.

Land Rover Genuine Parts Road Hazard Triangle

The Road Hazard Triangle features highly reflective panels that shine light back onto traffic.

Land Rover Genuine Parts Road Hazard Triangle

A bright orange inner triangle gives warning in daytime conditions.

Land Rover Genuine Parts Road Hazard Triangle

Heavy wire legs span a large distance and support the Road Hazard Triangle.

Land Rover Genuine Parts Road Hazard Triangle Land Rover Genuine Parts Road Hazard Triangle

All four legs detent in the open and closed positions and stay open or closed.

Land Rover Genuine Parts Road Hazard Triangle

The Road Hazard Triangle is heavy and will not tip over from vehicles zooming past at high speed.

Land Rover Genuine Parts Road Hazard Triangle

The Road Hazard Triangle is ingeniously designed to fold up into a very small space for easy storage.

Land Rover Genuine Parts Road Hazard Triangle

The Road Hazard Triangle comes complete with a green polymer storage case. This storage case can be stored almost anywhere inside your vehicle, so there's no reason not to have one or even two inside your vehicle at all times.

Land Rover Genuine Parts Disco2 Tie-Down Loop

The Tie-Down Loop is standard fitment on the Disco2, but is suitable for use on all Rover vehicles. The Tie-Down Loop is shaped so that it can be partially hidden under carpet, with only the D-ring showing above the carpet for a clean appearance.

Land Rover Genuine Parts Disco2 Tie-Down Loop Land Rover Genuine Parts Disco2 Tie-Down Loop

The D-ring is hinged and is free to swing a full 180 degrees. Mounting bolts are not included, since the Tie-Down Loops may be mounted in so many different ways and different methods of mounting will require different fastener lengths and styles.

Michelin XZL's

Almost all serious fourwheelers upgrade to tires both larger in size and more aggressive in tread pattern. Trail tires like the Michelin XZL provide greater offroad traction and strength than do street tires. These tires, however, also provide extra road noise and vibration on the highway. This noise and vibration becomes tiring and annoying on long trips.

4.11 Ring & Pinion

Most serious fourwheelers also change to lower gearing to compensate for both the larger-diameter trail tires they have fitted and the already-overgeared nature of factory Land Rovers. These 4.11 Ring & Pinion Gear Set from Great Basin Rovers provide a very usable gear reduction that brings most modified Rovers back into the usable range. The front ring & pinion set is also the reverse-rotation type for additional strength. These lower gears spin faster and generate more gear noise than the factory 3.54 gears. While larger and more aggressive tires and lower gears have trade-offs, we put these items on our vehicles because they provide utility and performance that outweigh their inevitable trade-offs.

Land Rover Genuine Parts Rubberized Spring Isolator Land Rover Genuine Parts Rubberized Spring Isolator

Up to now, most fourwheelers have lived with these trade-offs. However, there are devices available that minimize these trade-offs without butchering the vehicle. The Rubberized Spring Isolator was designed the minimize the transmission of road, suspension, and drivetrain vibrations to the vehicle's cabin. If you have a Discovery, you are probably familiar with these isolators, as they are fitted above your rear springs.

Land Rover Genuine Parts Rubberized Spring Isolator

This isolator, however, has many more uses, especially on offroad vehicles. The isolator can also be used as a spring shim to level out a listing vehicle, or even to raise a vehicle slightly.

Land Rover Genuine Parts Rubberized Spring Isolator

The isolators feature a steel lip that mates with the end of the coil spring. Unlike the Old Man Emu 10mm Trim Packer (which can be mounted only to the tops of the rear springs), this isolator can be fitted front or rear, top or bottom. You can even mount eight different isolators to all four of your springs for additional lift and/or additional vibration attenuation.

Land Rover Genuine Parts Spring Seat

Here is the orientation of the Spring Seat without a coil spring fitted.

Land Rover Genuine Parts Rubberized Spring Isolator

A Rubberized Spring Isolator fits snugly onto the Spring Seat. The steel lip inside the Rubberized Spring Isolator securely mates with a coil spring.

Land Rover Genuine Parts Rubberized Spring Isolator

The Rubberized Spring Isolator may be fitted top or bottom, or both top and bottom.

Front Sag

If you have fitted an ARB Winch Bar and a Superwinch to your vehicle, you have probably noticed that the front of your vehicle sits lower than the rear. Front springs, even Old Man Emu Heavy-Duty Front Springs, usually wear out faster than the rear springs. This is so for several reasons. First, the front bumper and winch are always on the vehicle, while the rear of the vehicle is heavily loaded only during trips and is usually empty during daily use. Second, the front springs are lighter in rate than the rear springs. The Rubberized Spring Isolators can resolve this problem, as they can be fitted to the top and/or bottom of the front springs. These are very useful items, as they can lift a sagging vehicle and/or level out a listing vehicle, as well as provide vibration and noise attenuation to make your vehicle a more comfortable daily driver. The Rubberized Spring Isolators do not detract from the vehicle's performance in any manner. Finally, there is no butchery of the vehicle required to mount these elegant enhancements to your vehicle.

Land Rover Genuine Parts Rubberized Spring Isolator

This Disco2 has been fitted with Old Man Emu 751 Front Springs and has the Rubberized Spring Isolators fitted top and bottom. This Disco2 is fitted with the SLS rear suspension, a very heavy front bumper, and winch. Over time, the front springs sagged under the load but the SLS did not sag at all. Thus this vehicle was sitting slightly nose-low. To cure the front sag, the owner fitted Rubberized Spring Isolators top and bottom and lifted the front almost 1".

Land Rover Genuine Parts Rubberized Spring Isolator

The Rubberized Spring Isolators may look crude, but the crudeness is only superficial. The ostensible crudeness is merely mold lubricant and flashing from the manufacturing process. On the left is a new isolator. On the right is a used isolator, with the lubricant and flashing worn off from use.

Land Rover Genuine Parts Rubberized Spring Isolator

After fitment to your vehicle, the mold lubricant and flashing will fall off and expose the true appearance of the Rubberized Spring Isolators.

Land Rover Genuine Parts Rubberized Shock Tower Securing Ring

If you want additional vibration and noise attenuation for your vehicle, the Rubberized Shock Tower Securing Ring is available.

Land Rover Genuine Parts Rubberized Shock Tower Securing Ring

The entire unit is covered in rubber and attenuates the transmission of road, suspension, and drivetrain vibration and noise to the vehicle's cabin.

Land Rover Genuine Parts Rubberized Shock Tower Securing Ring

The Rubberized Shock Tower Securing Ring's rubber skirt inserts into the front spring.

Land Rover Genuine Parts Rubberized Shock Tower Securing Ring

We include four Zinc-plated Nyloc flange nuts with each Rubberized Shock Tower Securing ring we sell.

Land Rover Genuine Parts Rubberized Shock Tower Securing Ring

The Rubberized Shock Tower Securing Ring is standard fitment on all newer coilsprung Land Rovers like the Discovery Series II.

Steel Shock Tower Securing Ring

Older coilsprung Rovers like the Range Rover Classics, Discovery Series I, and Defenders employ a corrugated steel shock tower retaining ring.

Steel Shock Tower Securing Ring

This steel unit does not employ any padding, and thus road, suspension, and drivetrain vibration and noise have a clear path from the axle to the spring to the spring perch to the frame and to the vehicle's interior.

Land Rover Genuine Parts Rubberized Shock Tower Securing Ring

Replacing this steel unit with the Rubberized Shock Tower Securing Ring to these older vehicles will attenuate vibration and noise from the front axle and tires.

Land Rover Genuine Parts Rubberized Shock Tower Securing Ring

The rubber and steel shock tower securing rings employ the same bolt pattern and will fit the same vehicles. There is no drilling or other vehicle butchery required to mount these. In other words, if you have a Defender, Discovery Series I, or coilsprung Range Rover Classic, the Rubberized Shock Tower Securing Ring will fit your vehicle. Again, the bolt pattern is identical and this unit will bit both the older stud-type and the newer eyelet-type shock towers equally well.

Steel Shock Tower Securing Ring Land Rover Genuine Parts Rubberized Shock Tower Securing Ring

On the left is a Defender with the standard steel securing ring. On the right is a Range Rover Classic with the Rubberized Shock Tower Securing Ring mounted. The Rubberized Shock Tower Securing Ring adds a little height as well as noise and vibration dampening.

Middle of BFE

A "solid" vehicle, one that you can depend on in the middle of nowhere, is necessarily a reliable vehicle. The factory air suspension is a liability on any offroad vehicle that travels far from home, and it's only a matter of time before the air suspension gives. When you're far from home with no garage in site, the last thing you want to deal with is limping home on the bumpstops. We opine that all serious fourwheelers should replace their air suspension with Old Man Emu Springs for additional clearance and enhanced reliability. We have witnessed several air suspension failures in the field and have heard of dozens more. Air suspensions necessarily rely on the integrity of airsprings, air lines, connections, compressors, wiring, height sensors, and so on. All of these are a liability and should be removed. Photo by Alan Stuart.

Land Rover Genuine Parts Spring Seat

This Spring Seat fits the front and rear springs on Range Rover Classics, Discovery Series Is, and Defender 90s, as well as the front of the Defender 110. Discovery Series IIs require a different Spring Seat. The Spring Seats are intended as replacement parts on vehicles that came from the factory with air suspension. Remove one more weak link from your vehicle by converting to coil springs.

Land Rover Genuine Parts Spring Seat

The Disco2 Spring Seat is taller.

Land Rover Genuine Parts Spring Seat

The Defender/Disco1/Range Rover Classic Spring Seat is on the left. The Disco2 Spring Seat is on the right. The two are not interchangeable.

Land Rover Genuine Parts Magnetic Drain Plug

To enhance reliability, change your differential fluids regularly. This practice will also maximize component life and smooth operation. Another very nice factory upgrade to older Land Rovers the fitment of the Magnetic Drain Plug to the front and rear differentials. The Magnetic Drain Plugs come standard on the Disco2, but fit both the drain plug and fill plug holes on all Land Rover solid axles such as the Defenders, Disco1, and Range Rover Classic.

Land Rover Genuine Parts Magnetic Drain Plug

A powerful magnet on the tip of the drain plug collects metal particles inside the axle and prevents these particles from causing additional wear to the differential, gears, and bearings contained within the axle. Furthermore, the presence or absence of metallic particles on the drain plug at service time gives visible indication of possible problems with your drivetrain components.

Land Rover Genuine Parts Magnetic Drain Plug Land Rover Genuine Parts Magnetic Drain Plug

The particulates on this Magnetic Drain Plug are not normal, and give indication that there is something wrong. The bits are quite large and show something within the third member has broken. In this case, a pinion shim has disintegrated and requires repair.

Land Rover Genuine Parts Magnetic Drain Plug

The Magnetic Drain Plus is identical in dimensions to the non-magnetic drain plug, except that the Magnetic Drain Plug is taller because of the magnet. Both types of drain plugs are absolutely interchangeable.

Dusy Ershim

If you have wheeled on some of the more difficult trails, then your drain plugs are probably needing replacement anyway. The drain plugs are situated very low on the vehicle and are exposed to the inevitable knocks and scrapes from doing difficult trails.

Land Rover Genuine Parts Magnetic Drain Plug

This is Ho's rear drain plug after the Dusy-Ershim.

Land Rover Genuine Parts Magnetic Drain Plug

Compare Ho's old drain plug to a new Magnetic Drain Plug. The difference is remarkable.

Land Rover Genuine Parts Magnetic Drain Plug

John's factory drain plugs were no better than Ho's. Both of us replaced our factory drain plugs with the Magnetic Drain Plugs at our next gear oil change.

Land Rover Genuine Parts Magnetic Drain Plug

Replacing your drain plugs is very simple. The Magnetic Drain Plug is a standard 1/2" drive.

Land Rover Genuine Parts Magnetic Drain Plug Land Rover Genuine Parts Magnetic Drain Plug Land Rover Genuine Parts Magnetic Drain Plug

All ratchets, breaker bars, and ratchet adapters with 1/2" anvils will fit the Magnetic Drain Plug.

Land Rover Genuine Parts Magnetic Drain Plug

If you do not have a 1/2" driver, then a 1/2" drive socket cap will also work.

Land Rover Genuine Parts Magnetic Drain Plug

Fitment of the 1/2" drive socket cap will enable you to use a wrench to thread or unthread your Magnetic Drain Plug.

Disco Steel Wheels 130 Steel Wheels

Many fourwheelers fit their vehicles with steel wheels for their rugged looks and theoretical strength advantage over alloy wheels. We both use and recommend only Genuine Parts steel wheels on our vehicles. We have found many other aftermarket wheels to be out of round or suffer concentricity problems. Use only Genuine Parts steel wheels for best results.

Land Rover Genuine Parts Steel Wheel Lug Nut

Genuine Parts wheels deserve Genuine Parts lug nuts. Do not skimp on inferior-quality lug nuts. The RRD500010 Lug Nut fits the wheel studs on the Defender, Discovery Series I, and Range Rover Classic.

Land Rover Genuine Parts Defender Headlight Switch

The PRC3430 came standard on the 1993-1995 NAS Defenders. This switch does not fit 1997 NAS Defenders.

Land Rover Genuine Parts Defender Headlight Switch

The two switches are identical except for their connectors. The AMR6104's connector is on the left, while the PRC3430's connector is on the right.

Land Rover Genuine Parts Defender Headlight Switch

The PRC3430 switches have a a tendency to burn out because of the lack of a relay in the Defender headlights' wiring scheme. With no relay in the headlight wiring scheme, all of the current required to illuminate the headlights must flow through the switch.

Land Rover Genuine Parts Defender Headlight Switch

The heat generated by the relatively high current flow is sufficient to melt the switch. The copper contacts of the switch become displaced and the switch no longer functions. John has gone through two headlight switches on his Defender using standard 55w bulbs, and now carries a spare switch inside his Defender's center console.

Land Rover Genuine Parts Range Rover Classic Headlight Switch

If you own a Defender and want very factory-looking light or ARB Air Locker switches for your interior, another very nice option is the headlight switch from the Range Rover Classic. Your Defender's dash is already pre-cut to accept these very useful switches.

Land Rover Genuine Parts Range Rover Classic Headlight Switch

These switches are the three-position type and can be wired to run different lights or front and rear ARB Air Lockers off a single switch. This is very handy on the Defender, which does not have a lot of factory switch options the way the Discovery does.

Land Rover Genuine Parts Range Rover Classic Headlight Switch

Here is a photo of the lower left dash area on John's old Defender 90. You will see that John relocated the factory dimmer switch to the steel fascia below the vehicle's binnacle. The hole for the relocated dimmer switch is there from the factory and covered by a piece of plastic. It is a very simple matter to relocate the dimmer switch to the second position, and no extension of the factory wiring is required. Relocating the dimmer switch provides three different cutouts for the Range Rover Headlight Switches and the only thing that has to be cut is the vinyl. In this photo, all three switches are mounted into the factory cutouts and are "off".

Land Rover Genuine Parts Range Rover Classic Headlight Switch

The Range Rover Headlight Switches are easier to manipulate than the low-profile Defender 110 Dome Light Switch.

Hella 550 Fogs

John wired his left switch so that clicking it downward one position will illuminate the Hella 550 Fog Lamps mounted to his brushguard. Photo by Axel Haakonsen.

Land Rover Genuine Parts Range Rover Classic Headlight Switch

Having three, three-position switches gives a lot of flexibility for switching options for your auxiliary lights. The Defender does not have a lot of slots for factory switches, so these switches are very suitable for a Defender that is fitted with lots of auxiliary lights or ARB Air Lockers.

Hella Spotting Lights

John wired his middle switch to run his spotting lamps. The first downward click of the middle switch illuminates the Hella FF Ultra Beam Worklamp on the front and the Hella Double Worklamp mounted above the rear axle. Clicking the same switch to the third position keeps the front and rear spotting lamps illuminated, but also illuminates the Hella FF Ultra Beam Worklamps on each side of the vehicle's frame. John has yet to wire the third switch and will probably use that for a backup lamp. These switches are as useful as they are aesthetically pleasing.

Land Rover Genuine Parts Defender 110 Dome Light Switch

Another fine option for auxiliary switching inside your Defender is the Defender 110 Dome Light Switch, which has certain advantages over the Range Rover Classic Headlight Switch.

Land Rover Genuine Parts Defender 110 Dome Light Switch

Like the Range Rover Classic Headlight Switch, the Defender 110 Dome Light Switch is the three-position type. However, the Defender 110 Dome Light Switch features a very low profile with a rocker design that does not protrude from the dash.

Land Rover Genuine Parts Defender 110 Dome Light Switch

On the left is the Range Rover Classic Headlight Switch. On the right is the Defender 110 Dome Light Switch. Both switches are the three-position type and fit the same factory holes in the Defender's dash.

Land Rover Genuine Parts Defender 110 Dome Light Switch

However, the Defender 110 Dome Light switch sits almost flush and matches the profile of the factory dimmer switch. If you are not going to relocate your dimmer switch and want your auxiliary switches to match, the Defender 110 Dome Light Switch may be preferable to maintain a factory-like appearance.

Land Rover Genuine Parts Defender 110 Dome Light Switch

The Defender 110 Dome Light Switch is another option for wiring your accessories without cluttering up your dash or ruining your vehicle's appearance.

Land Rover Genuine Parts Defender Auxiliary Switch (C38637L)

Yet another option for factory switching on a Defender is the Defender Auxiliary Switch, which closely resembles the 110 Dome Light Switch but has standard blade connectors (which are very easy to wire) and is a two-position switch.

Land Rover Genuine Parts Defender Auxiliary Switch (C38637L)

The Defender Auxiliary Switch has a blank face.

Land Rover Genuine Parts Defender Auxiliary Switch (C38637L)

The Defender Auxiliary Switch has a very simple arrangement with standard blade connectors and a simple logic circuit. The switch is a two-position type, i.e. on or off.

Land Rover Genuine Parts Defender Auxiliary Switch (C38637L)

Above is the switch area on John's Defender 110. The 110 Dome Light Switch and dimmer switch are in their factory positions. There is space for two Defender Auxiliary Switches if desired.

Land Rover Genuine Parts Defender Auxiliary Switch (C38637L)

The first Defender Auxiliary Switch will simply plug right into the hole on the bottom of the binnacle. (The switch is shown proud for demonstration purposes but will push in flush during the real installation.) A second Defender Auxiliary Switch may be mounted beside the dimmer switch by cutting the vinyl and inserting the switch. The Defender Auxiliary Switch in that location will very closely resemble the factory dome light and dimmer switches.

Land Rover Genuine Parts Defender Auxiliary Switch (C38637L)

The Defender Auxiliary Switch will make for a very simple and easy switch installation that looks factory. Factory-looking is what you want.

If you own a Defender, then you have probably lost your fuel filler cap. This Tethered Fuel Filler Cap is standard fitment on the Discovery and is an elegant solution to the problem of losing fuel filler caps. While not factory fitment on a Defender, the Tethered Fuel Filler Cap mounted on the Defender has a quasi-factory appearance and the result is not incongruous with the Defender's looks.

The tip of the tether has a "bearing" on it that will permit the user to mount the tether solidly to the vehicle and the tether will still be able to swing.

Mounting the tether is very simple. Simply drill a hole into your vehicle's bodywork and fit the tether with a small screw and nut. We prefer to use a stainless steel Philips screw and stainless steel Nyloc nut. We open that this type of installation is less invasive than mounting a Riv-Nut into the vehicle's bodywork.

The tether also permits the cap to hang freely while refueling your vehicle and there is no need to place the cap on the wheel carrier or elsewhere. Not only is losing the cap eliminated but refueling is also much considerably easier. If you own a Defender, then the Tethered Fuel Filler Cap will greatly enhance your day-to-day enjoyment of your vehicle.

If you have a roof rack on your Discovery, you need a ladder to access the roof rack and the Pelican Protector Cases, Jerrycans, or other items stored on your rack. Without a rear ladder, one must climb onto the spare wheel to access the roof rack. Installing A Genuine Land Rover Rear Ladder On Your Discovery is very simple and there is no reason not to fit a rear ladder if you have a roof rack. Photo by Craig Kobayashi.

All of the fasteners and ancillaries necessary for a proper installation of the Rear Ladder are included.

Land Rover Genuine Parts G4 Challenge Rear Upper Lamp Guard Set

The G4 Challenge Rear Upper Lamp Guards are fitted to the Land Rover G4 Challenge Discoveries, and protect the upper tail lamps on all model years of the Disco2. These are especially attractive on the 2003 and 2004 model years of the Disco2, as these vehicles come standard with flat and featureless tail lamps.

Land Rover Genuine Parts G4 Challenge Rear Upper Lamp Guard Set

These plastic Lamp Guards are more for looks than anything else, but we believe they make the Disco2 look nicer, and that alone is worthwhile. If they someday prevent the tail lamps from cracking in some odd situation, that is more of a collateral benefit than anything else.

Land Rover Genuine Parts Discovery Bahama Beige Cupholder Set

Not every modification to one's vehicle must concern offroad capability. Our own Land Rovers are our daily drivers and we try to make them as comfortable as possible. Make everything from international expeditions to your daily commute more enjoyable with this Cupholder Set.

The Disco1 and early models of the Disco2 come from the factory with a retractable cup holder. While this cupholder is better than nothing, drinks contained in the cup holder obscure access to the vehicle's temperature controls. This cup holder also cannot hold oversize drinks.

Unlike the flimsy cupholder that emanates from the dash, these cupholders bolt solidly to your vehicle's center console, making driving more enjoyable by lessening spills. Driving is also made safer because hot refreshments like tea or coffee are less likely to spill while driving. These cupholders fit all model years of the Discovery and the 1995 model year of the Range Rover Classic, and are available in Bahama Beige or Dark Smokestone colors to match the factory colors of your interior.

The mouths of the cupholders are sized to hold securely smaller liquid containers such as cans of soda or small bottles.

To make the cupholders hold larger containers such as Big Gulps or insulated mugs, simply pull out the center of the cupholders to reveal their larger mouths.

The large mouths of the cupholders will hold very large drinks such as this Horchata Grande from King Taco.

The top of the cupholder is hooked every 90 degrees so that its opening can be oriented to suit different mounting locations.

Once mounted, the driver-side cupholder can have its opening point toward the driver and the passenger-side cupholder can have its opening point toward the passenger.

The Cupholder Set is also available in Dark Smokestone color to match Discoveries with gray interiors.

Hella In Action

Fourwheeling can be a lot more fun in the dark. The lack of visibility can transform an ordinary trail into a very interesting one. If you are going to wheel in the dark, then you should have auxiliary lights mounted to your vehicle for greater visibility. The added visibility will help prevent accidents and other mishaps.

Hella 24,000 System

Ho's Disco1 was fitted with the Hella 24,000 System (Six Hella Rallye 4000s). Ho's winch bumper is fitted with two Hella Rallye 4000 Cornering Beams. Ho's Safety Devices Highlander Roof Rack is fitted with four more Rallye 4000 Euro Beams. All of Ho's Rallye 4000's are fitted with Hella Rallye 4000 Clear Covers.

Hella Rallye 4000 Six Pack

This setup produces a tremendous amount of light and is as beautiful as it is effective. All of those lights, however, require switches to turn them on and off. While there are scores of different auxiliary light switches available on the market, we use and recommend only the Genuine Parts switches because they maintain a very factory look inside the vehicle. Many people are into having all sorts of toggle switches or buttons drilled into their dashes and consoles, but we are not one of them. Lighting installations with these switches fitted have always looked like hack jobs to our way of looking at things. We prefer to integrate the auxiliary light switches with the vehicle's interior design.

Land Rover Genuine Parts Discovery Series I Three-Switch Carrier

Some Disco1s were fitted with a Two-Switch Carrier. Others were fitted with a Three-Switch Carrier. Many savvy Disco1 owners change out the Two-Switch Carrier and replace it with a Three-Switch Carrier.

Land Rover Genuine Parts Discovery Series I Three-Switch Carrier

Others, especially those who do not smoke, pull the Disco1's or Disco2's ashtray and fit the Three-Switch for more switch options. The Three-Switch Carrier is ideal for using Land Rover Genuine Parts switches to control the ARB Air Compressor and front and rear ARB Air Lockers. Though eminently suitable for use inside the Disco2, the Three-Switch Carrier is compatible only with the Disco1 Rear Fog and Disco1 Front Fog Switches only, and not the Disco2 switches. The Disco1 Rear Fog Switch, Disco1 Front Fog Switch, and the Three-Switch Carrier have a Ash Grey color to suit interiors of Disco1s and pre-2003 Disco2s.

Land Rover Genuine Parts Discovery Series I Three-Switch Carrier

The Three-Switch Carrier is a very elegant way to add additional switches to one's vehicle if the binnacle is already full with other auxiliary switches.

Land Rover Genuine Parts Discovery Series I Three-Switch Carrier

Both the Disco1 Rear Fog Light and Disco1 Front Fog Light Switches fit the Three-Switch Carrier. When mounted into the Three-Switch Carrier, the Disco1 Rear Fog Light's icon points the beam upward/forward to designate roof lights. The array of different switch combinations one can achieve is limited only by his imagination.

This Disco2 is a good example of a very solid lighting setup. The TJM T17 Steel Bumper Channel is fitted with two Hella 4000 Fog Beams. The Safety Devices Highlander Roof Rack is fitted with four more Hella 4000s. The two Hella 4000s in the center are Euro Beams. Flanking the Euro Beams are two more 4000 Cornering Beams. All of the Hella 4000s are fitted with Hella 4000 Clear Covers. This setup produces a tremendous amount of light and is as beautiful as it is effective. For controlling these lights, we use and recommend only the Land Rover Genuine Parts switches to maintain the elegant interior found on the Disco2.
