Harrop-fettled V8 Colorado headlines cracking August 2018 issue of 4X4 Australia.


SIT back, grab a beverage and enjoy 162 pages of four-wheelin’ fun.

Harrop Engineering put its own spin on the Killa Kustoms V8-powered Colorado and called it the ‘Superado’, and we were flung the keys to it this month.

Customised metal didn’t end there, as we focused our microscope on a modified LC79 and American Expedition Vehicles’ Outpost II.

We also pointed four utes to the Flinders RangesX-Class, Ranger Wildtrak, Amarok Core Plus and Hilux Rugged X – for the Merc’s first outback stoush.

Wagons weren’t forgotten, either, with the top-selling MU-X and Pajero Sport ramming heads.
