"The big, gay Disco is primarily a publicity tool for the guy's business - and I think it does its job!"


It shows this company is good at applying stickers while suffering an abundance of poor judgment. If you want publicity for your company make sure its GOOD publicity!

"Any Publicity is good publicity"

You underestimate the power of stickers. In the UK, the off-road capabilities of a 4x4 are perceived to be directly proportional to the acreage of stickers applied to it.

Never could quite see the attraction myself

It think for 49's & a full bodies rig it is pretty much as low as he can get it. looking at the pic with the guy standing next to it, it looks like it sits lower than my fj40 on 44's (full bodied also).

I like the "stomper" look, reminds me of when I was a kid. & yeah I find it really fun to play in my stock (ish) rig (86 yota), & I can get it to go 70% of where I want. BUT...there IS a reason folks go with bigger tires.

I may be the only one that likes the looks of this thing...I would like to see some videos of what it can really do though......as well as turning radius, as I am fighting that right now myself

nothing gay about 49's. perhaps a little high-should lower that thing 4-6" and cut the wheelwells/body out instead of lifting so high. mogs are a little stressed under 49's and a heavy disco. those little v8 motors are better than 4.0 jeep I6's

but the real proof is in the fabrication and components. what axles, linkage, gearing are used. thats where the beef is. more pics please

too bad it doesnt snow enough in the UK for your truck to be useful! here in soviet canuckistan off roading between christmas and april means 44s and 500HP, or a snowmobile! what are you running for engine and gearing? I ve never seen a 500HP rover before, and thats what you need for 49s.

Looks like it might have been a useful machine on 40" Pitbulls.

Got a shot or two of the underneath at Billing, enjoy:




Unfortunately I suffered a severe beer malfunction and had to go and rectify it before completely forgetting to take any more photos. I'll try harder this year if he's there.

there are two of these trucks in the uk , a blue one owned by discovery breakers that they built to copy me and my original green one which they have advertizing on. i dont work for them though.the blue one in my opinion is a poor copy . im running diferent suspention and fabrication. ive retained the watts link just modified it . the pictures above are off the blue one not mine. im running different wheels now some mach 6 20 by 17's. the one in the video that is stuck in not mine its there one . the reason its stuck is because he put his tyres on cheep ass rims made by straightforward supplies that did not seal so he put tubes in them above 45 it shakes like a bastard . my usa 6x6 rims that i got from straightforward ripped in two, thats why i got some propper ones made . im now using dyna beads and 10 inch back spacing 7 out on the new rims . also two bilsin stering dampers back two back and it drives good at any speed upto 70.

So, since "big gay truck wheelin" seems to be about the most popular topic these days, are we going to change our forums section name to The Gossip Fence?

Standard Disco One brakes on a Disco II no less.

Now, I've found something to be critical of.

I don't see what the fuss is about??

I think it looks friggin awesome - ok its not a practical off roader in the same sense a stock D90 is. But that's hardly the reason for its existence.

To do some of the more extreme off roading in the UK you need something with an 80" wheelbase, small tyres and little body work. But then again, most American style setups wouldn't be much good for that.

Each to their own - but this one gets my vote!

dude, i wouldnt look bad if you took the ghey flares off ans stretched the wheel base like 20 inches, and of couse actually took it offroading somewhere other then dirt lots. I just looks awkward cause the stance looks like a lifted suzuki sami

Sadly in the UK you can't legally run wheels that stick out without being covered, very different to the US. If it stretched it, it would involve almost as much work again and wouldn't really look like a Disco. Maybe a 130 Defender would be a better bet?

Can we rename this thread ’’how to ruin a Disco’’?
I am going to get a roof rack just to mount more horns on!
Are those wired to an alarm clock for when you are sleeping in the tent?
