Prerunner/ high speed Jeeps??

Now I know it's very counter-intuitive to make a top heavy, short wheelbase truck into a prerunner, but has anyone on here done it? I know of the Jeepspeed examples and of the ATK unlimited Wrangler. What I'd love to see are some SWB Wranglers (TJ's especially) made to go fast too. I'm really looking for some low, long travel Wranglers (14-20" of travel possibly??) if there is such a thing as I'm trying to get ideas on how to build mine Any 3 link/ 4 link/ coilover/ WB stretch/ cage/ engine swap photos are GREATLY appreciated as I continue to review the build threads on this forum. Thanks!


P.S. I realize how stupid it sounds to some to make a Wrangler into a speed machine. If you strongly disagree with the subject of this thread, feel free to begin another thread to vent your thoughts and feelings, just keep it out of here

I think you've hit on why there aren't many-it's just not a great platform to use. I doubt you'll find many that aren't on Jeepspeed.

Go on you-tube and check out Dresden-Breslau rallye. There are some crazy rigs, lots of Jeep based stuff, many are even sporting portal axles!
