Red Five – Chris’s Discovery 1 300tdi

This is Chris’s future Overland vehicle, being designed and built from Paul’s experience developing Heimdall. With no expense spared so far, this truck has had a full 2in suspension lift all round, numerous Fourby4x4 engine upgrades and several upgrades to the drivetrain. With future plans to include tray backing the vehicle, custom removable canopy and full paint job, there’s a lot to keep Raptor’s Garage busy for the next year.

It’s Chris’s dream to build a truck as capable as Paul’s Disco, and having searched the classifieds for months, he finally found his starter vehicle back in October 2019. Whilst the Lockdown of 2020 has caused some delays with the build, time was well spent researching and developing new ideas for the build.

  • 33″ TOYO Open Country Tyres on 15″ Steel GOJO’s
  • Fourby4x4 Performance Upgrades

  • Adrenalin 4×4 Steering Bars and A-Frame

  • Terrafirma Exbidition Shock Absorbers

  • Dixon Fabrication Winch Bumper

Be sure to check out how this project develops on YouTube. There’s some awesome modifications coming in 2020 that will ensure Chris’s Red Five can keep up with anywhere Paul can take Heimdall. With a detchable canopy that can be removed to leave a very capable tray back vehicle, this off-roader/overland vehicle will be both comfortable and practicable for the future journeys in the planinng stage.

“Wow this is going to be some project can’t wait love the look on your face when shiny stuff arrives.”
