    I got a hitch receiver for my '00 DiscoII but I now need the electrical wiring harness to go with it. Does anyone know if there are any generic models that will fit?

    I know I don't know what I'm talking about so please be patient with me here but is this a cut & splice project or do the parts just plug in?
    Thanks guys!

    For my buddy's D1, we got a U-Haul wiring harness (# 13486), which cost about $20, and wired it as follows:

    Land Rover Wiring U-Haul Harness Wiring
    PURPLE&GREEN RED
    ORANGE&RED BROWN
    GREEN&RED YELLOW
    GREEN&WHITE GREEN


    It's exceptionally easy to get to (access from the panel in the rear cargo area near the right tail light), and using "ScotchLok" connectors to splice in the wires is simple as well.

  9. I have a 98 Discovery that I need to do add trailer wiring harness, called the local place where I usually get that stuff done and they said that only LR can do it. Is it that difficult or do they just not like to mess with LR's. I am not electrically talented, so I do not feel comfortable doing it myself. I think I will get robbed at the dealer... any suggestions?

    Can anyone tell me how to wire (color on LR to color on standard plug) my LRdisco 1 by cutting out the plug found behind the tail light to the new store bought plug? Please!!
