Building A Beast

So here is the deal, I really like the WK2 and intend on pulling the trigger and buying one once I find a deal that I can not turn down. I also really want to go storm chasing this upcoming spring. Crazy, I know. However, I find meteorology really really interesting. I would love to get as close as possible to a tornado without actually getting in the tornado ( couple hundred feet for the smaller tornadoes and a little further away from the larger tornadoes). Storm chasing will sometimes require that I may have to take a dirt path that may not be very smooth or very even. So, my question to you, what would you recommend, suspension wise...for offroading at a decent rate of speed? Thanks.

Re: Building A Beast

My kind of thread! I would say 2'' and 32's would be ideal and still have plenty of low end grunt.

Re: Building A Beast

the idea of what that wind/debris/hale will do to the body of that thing makes me cringe...
