A prerunner pre-runs desert race tracks before the trophy trucks go so they can learn about the course. Didn't know you guys had desert race tracks in VA

dont listen to these guys, they are all messing with you!!! hahaha ok, here is what you can do if you wanna "pre-run" on a budget, your gona wanna get a dana 30 with a dana 60 ring and pinion gear with d28 outers for the front... probably do 2.07 gears with a welded ARB limited slip, then take your stock front suspension and move it to the back, maybe change up the gear a little to 2.33, or 2.43s? whatever you think would be good... no need for a rear driveline for this setup cause it will mess up the geometry and it wont work as good... get a setup of 93 inch chevy springs for the IFS, this will give you the most useable travel for flat roads and the stiffest for big rocks and stuff.... (if that makes sense)... so ultimately you need to straight axle the front, and swap your IFS to the back... i know its complicated but if you have any quesitons feel free to ask, dont feel stupid asking stuff.. cause thats what forums are for!!

this is very true, make sure you get the 2wd DBR kit, cause like i said earlier, there is no need for the rear driveline cause of mathematical geometric angles, forces, and reactions...

Pre runner = Truck that pre runs a course before a race.

Most Baja Teams have a "pre runner" vehicle.

It could be all stock

Dont forget the massive monster sticker on your bed sides. And for extra-bro points, throw a Tapout sticker in the bakc window.
