Our readers are likely aware by this point that we are pretty big fans of American Expedition Vehicles. When it comes to off-road upfitters, AEV makes some of the coolest products on the market right now. Thanks to their collaboration with Chevrolet on the Colorado ZR2 Bison, we also know that these products can stand up to the most abusive conditions in the world. That is of course a result of Hall Racing’s effort, who compete with a production-based ZR2 in the 7300 stock class of off-road racing. Their race-truck features a number of AEV-upgrades, but now their chase truck is getting HighMark Fenders.
Thanks to an image uploaded to AEV’s Facebook page, we have our first look at the newly improved Hall Racing chase truck. Donning a Bison hood and the HighMark Fenders, this ZR2 now sports some visual flair to back up its immense capabilities. The fender flairs are an interesting addition to the chase truck, as the racer carries a more factory-fresh appearance. With American Expedition Vehicles recently opening the order books for their fenders, it makes sense to us that they decided to show off their racing ties.
And make no mistake about it, AEV is an integral part of Chevrolet and Hall Racing’s efforts out in the desert. The production-based ZR2 that Hall Racing uses has been primarily upgraded with parts directly available through the Chevrolet Performance catalog, however some AEV bits have made their way onto the truck. Those bits include the ZR2 Bison skid plates for the engine, transmission and differential, as well as the Crestone DualSport beadlock wheels and a snorkel for air filtration out in the sand and dust of the desert.
While racing is on hold as the world remains cautious about the coronavirus, expect to see this Hall Racing chase truck sporting its HighMark Fenders out in the sand in the future. Should you want to order a set for your own Colorado (when they are back in stock), you can do so here.
