Chris’s Land Rover Discovery 1 300tdi


Chris’s Land Rover Discovery 1 300tdi


1998 Land Rover Discovery 1 300tdi “Red Five”

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.

Big thanks to our sponsors Fourby 4×4, Adrenaline 4×4, LongRanger 4×4 and U-Pol Raptor Protective Coatings – these projects wouldn’t be possible without their continued help and support.

Now what a transformation! Picked the old girl right up and now will have quite an impressive road presence and stance. Brilliant stuff fella’s. Definitely the ‘go to ‘ channel for us disco owners. Great job, looking forward to more. Cheers……. from someone that’s still rolling on standard 29.5 inch .. lol”
