Ok,

Despite my search for a 90-type, I have bought a year 200, Disco II, TD5 (it was cheap and tidy).

It's got decent Grabber AT2s on the back and I have a pair for the front which will go on soon. I guess they should be sufficient for most things just now.

Any suggestions for sensible mods would be appreciated - I'm not just leaping into things but a few gradual mods would be good.

My first thought is some extra lighting though as the standard lights are a bit poor - some kind of auxillary lighting would be useful: any types to look for - what about lighing bars etc?

thanks in advance

How gradual is gradual? Are you thinking of cosmetic, or off-road performance?

Cosmetic is a snorkel and light bar, off-road is suspension lift and larger tyres....

Err.... some 'mild' (ish) off roading but I'd quite like to get a bit more into it. I'm thinking enough equipment that I won't make a fool of myself if I attend an event but not so much that it costs a fortune

Thinking light bar is number 1 priority as the lights are terrible and it'd be handy to have more lights for farm work etc.

A lift kit is also being considered especially as the dampers feel like they are past their best so rather than replace with stock, thought it might be as well to kill 2 birds with one stone.
