Which Disco 4 upgrades?

I am looking into some upgrades for my Discovery 4 TDV6. I already have a bull bar with driving lights and a rear wheel carrier and jerry can holder. The next kit I am looking at getting, in order of priority and some quoted prices are:

1) Snorkel - $869
2) Auxiliary battery - $907
3) Power chip - $800 if they can access the chip to $1200 if they can not access the chip
4) Tyre pressure monitor - $420
5) LLAMS height controller
6) Water watch trap assembly
7) Oil cooler

My questions are:
Do these prices seam reasonable (any recommended places I should go to for quotes)?
Does the order of priority look about right?
Is there anything else I should be considering?

Regards,

Glyn

Glyn,
I would do . . .
1
2
5
I would do these 3 first as a priority & all at once.
They all kind of tie in together as the air intake & LLams help each other out.
The dual battery helps keep the drinks cold
The rest can wait if need be for other reasons & be done a your leisure.

Cheers

I'm doing upgrades on my D4 as well... Based on your list I've re-ordered as I see.

I'm waiting delivery of my ARB winch bar and fitting the FYRLYTs and winch.

Then will be going: Green is my added stuff!
- UHF (IC-440)
5) LLAMS height controller Already have unit
2) Auxiliary battery Traxide
- Sill Protection
4) Tyre pressure monitor Tyredog
1) Snorkel Going with Genuine RAI I have no desire to wade if avoidable and think unit is neater
- Wheel Carrier

MAYBE
3) Power chip - $800 if they can access the chip to $1200 if they can not access the chip Odd comments here... Who are you going with? I ask because this is ringing alarm bells...
- Aux Fuel Tank

WONT BE DOING:
6) Water watch trap assembly Risk low in my opinion / experience
7) Oil cooler Wont be doing this either - And those with any mechanical sympathy wont tow in the heat of day during summer We see it around here on the highways all the time - stinking hot and nomads are towing - what a great way to just stress the heck out of everything...
Better parked up enjoying some shade and a cold one
.

IF CHIPPING the Diesel D3/D4 vehicles plan to upgrade the Transmission Pan to metal and flush and replace Trans fluid at regular intervals.
Failure to do so will result in an expensive replacement transmission!!!

Hi discowhite and Tombie,

Tombie: The snokel is OEM. Where do you live so I can bring the car round for you to fit the auxiliary battery for $453.50?

discowhite:

1) Is your auxiliary batter under the bonnet or in the back? Just so as I know whether to insist it goes under the bonnet as I have heard that there are problems placing it there and some people opt for putting it in the back.

2) Does the LLAMs height controler live up to your expectations?

3) Are you happy with the Tyredog?

I will keep in mind upgrading the transmission pan. I am going with Davis Performance Landys at Amaroo Park.

Thanks guys,

Glyn

Hi Glyn - a mate of mine has this and he had problems with one of the sensors not working. It seems they are the weak point of this setup.

I didnt offer the Dual Battery

OEM is not a snorkel and is not sealed... It is a RAI - Raised Air Intake only.

Tyredog I do use, have ran it for years and very happy.
