Rolling Taurus Chassis available

with one comment



We do offer rolling Taurus chassis. This chassis is available with the next options:


1) CDS

2) T45

All chassis are D&G Tuning design and constructed by Protection and Performance and can be build to FIA specs.

The chassis accepts the Land Rover 90 body and the brackets for that are welded on the chassis.

All other brackets for suspension, link, sway bar, winches are in OPTION available.



1) 4 link front and rear with chromoly heat threated links with 107,182 lbs rated radial load rod ends!



2)  Front and rear Gigglepin radius arms with extended A-frame. With this setup you can run your Original Land Rover axles. You can also obtain for Spider 9 axles to run this suspension system.



The Taurus chassis  accepts tires up to 44″.  We can create 50° steering lock with 42″ and Spider 9 axles



For the moment we only work with 14″ travel 2.0″ or 2.5″ coil over shocks. Bypass shocks are also possible to mount on the Taurus chassis




The chassis accept any kind of engine type. Diesel or Petrol. 4cyl, 6cyl or V8. Automatic or manual gearbox. Any kind of transfer box with left or right hand front propshaft output. Most of the vehicle we build are with GM LS style engines, starting from 5.3L up to 6.2L.



Any kind of winch can be build on the chassis. Front, Rear or Center. Electrical, Hydraulic or Mechanical.

Most of the winches we build are Gigglepin winches



You can build your own axle on the chassis such as Land Rover, Nissan, Toyota, Mercedes, Unimog, etc. We highly recommend to use Spidertrax Axles as these are build to accept extreme conditions and have been proven for years into the toughest competitions around the world.


Full Hydraulic with double or single ended ram. Steering box with assist. Front and rear steering
