Purchsed with the full intention of turning this battered and unloved Discovery 1 into the ultimate off-roader. The vehicle originally came on 35″ Cooper tyres, but had been seriously abused over the course of it’s life. The body was held on by one chassis mount and just the seat belt anchors. The only way to go was to chop half the body away, getting rid of the worst of the rust, and tray back the rear.
Big thanks to James at Adrenalin 4×4 who steped in and helped us out with some incredible off road suspension components. This truly is a monster truck, but built on a budget to show what can be done. It will take its place in the line-up as a back up/recovery vehicle, competition truck and filming vehicle.
Be sure to check out the build on YouTube and see us chop the body in half, remove the remaing body from the chassis for welding and build the ultimate off road Disco. Sitting with a 4in suspension lift, this Disco is going to make for some awesome videos in the future.
