    I don’t need any part atm. Fortunately, my lr4 is healthy, but i know that sort of things only lasts so long.

    That beibg said, Apparently the local junkyard got just a couple of discos in and they’ll be ripe for the picking tomorrow. Since you guys know more about these wonderful vehicles, and have beaucoup experience with repairs and such, what parts should i definitely try to get my hands on for “down-the-road” that could save me a bunch of money?

    also, i understand that my vehicle uses a Jaguar engine (or so i was told), so are there any jaguar parts i should be looking out for while i’m there?

    Most of the stuff I can think off are potentially wear items, so I don't think a used one will be much help, but perhaps others can chime in.

    Check if either has a locking diff in the rear. That and the control module and axles would be a useful upgrade for you, even if it needed some refurb.

    If it is in Houston, let me know where after you get what you want. I would love to replace a couple broken interior bits if either has an almond interior.

    Based on items I would personally wish I had, might give you some ideas:

    Side mirror glass
    Look for hitch receiver, wiring
    MAF sensor
    EAS height sensors
    Compressor
    Nondeformed lug nuts
    Full size spare
    Driver master window switch panel
    Light guards
    A pillar trims
    Rear cargo cover
    Rubber mats
    Parking sensors
    iPod interface
    various trim clips, rubber bump stops, missing skid plate bolts, engine trim screws, etc

    I could probably keep going if I gave more time HA

    If you have regular halogen lights and the salvage LR4 has xenons, those are an easy swap.

    I am going to ask as well since this is in Houston. Can you know what you find there? I just need a new DS window switch plastic in black. Mine is scratched and is driving me crazy.
