An off-road racer’s pre-runner truck is the tool for making sure that the course to be tackled is first thoroughly investigated. Well, you want your co-driver to know where the bumps, ruts, and other pitfalls are.
This way when you are blasting across the desert at 100 mph in the dark of night, you have the idea of what is in front of you. It makes sense, then, that sometimes people can go the little overboard when building their pre-runners.
Say hello to one such build. This is no longer the stock Chevrolet Colorado, though it started life that way. Instead, it is been transformed by Roadster Shop of Illinois into the ColoRADo.
It lives up to its name based on the quick glance alone, and backs up all of that style when you dive into the spec sheet and watch all a fabrication that was done in this video.
The customized body plays host to the wealth of parts that should help this truck power through pretty much anything. And power through it shall thanks to the 730-hp LS7 V-8 sitting toward the rear of the engine compartment.
A set of Fox racing shocks work with the custom suspension components crafted by the tuning shop to give this ColoRADo the massive 22 inches of travel in the front and 27 inches in the rear. That is all made possible by the completely new frame that the shop also fabricated.
From the aluminum bodywork to a massive engine and on to the incredible suspension, we are both in awe and terrified. We are in awe of the capability this truck has on tap. We terrified of the tab for a final build cost.
