Hey everyone:

I have an opportunity to purchase a 2003 Land Rovery Discovery. Towing guide for MY 2003 cars says four-wheels down is ok. My specific question is addressed to those folks out there that tow a LR and what their set-up is. Also, if there any quirks I should be aware of when towing a LR for this model year. My rig is a Class A gas, 2010 V-10, 35' - 5k towing capacity, so I know the GVW for the LR is right up there at about 4,800 lbs, but I believe my Damon has the umph to to manage the weight.

I'll miss towing my little mini-cooper (front wheels up), but 4 wheels down and a larger car I think will be a better option for our growing young family.

Thanks,
Rob

p.s. one last question, what should I budget for costs associated to prep the LR for towing 4 wheels down?

gmoreno,
Tow Bar, Base plates, wiring of LR for lights and Braking system. Cost for all depends on how much you can do yourself.
Tow Bar $450 to $600. Base Plates $350 to $500. Wiring $150. Brkes System $600 to $1200. None of my estiments include labor.
