One of the most common questions we get is how to build a prerunner, so we decided to give you a step by step on how we build prerunners.
Our Explorer prerunner needed something more for the regular headlights. Because of the short design of the headlights we always found ourselves struggling to see when it is really dark. I upgraded the bulbs to higher output halogen bulbs, and we saw a little bit of an improvement, but still not enough. We decided an HID conversion kit was worth a try.

FOX has just released the “ECS” External Cooling System as an option on all new and existing FOX bypass shocks. The ECS is our latest development to come out of the Race Application Development program (RAD) that works with top motorsports athletes to devise and develop new technologies under the most extreme racing conditions.
This how to video will show you how to rebuild a bypass shock or coilover shock used on prerunners. We use a King 2.5 2 Tube Bypass Shock. If you have a prerunner that uses coilover shocks or bypass shocks, this video will show you how to rebuild them.
So many of our readers crave Tech articles so as a way to satisfy these cravings we are going to pay you for your Tech articles. Here's how it works.
- Tech articles must relate to building prerunners, side x sides or race trucks
- Articles must be detailed with pictures of each step mentioned (no cell phone pictures please)
GPS Visualizer allows you to see the race course from a bird's eye view.
When making a prerunner out of a 2WD vehicle you are at a disadvantage. When you buy a 4WD truck or SUV the factory knows the intended use and puts lower gears in the rear-end to compensate for larger off-road tires. This was not the case for our 2WD Explorer prerunner project.
