    i think it would be doable with a relocated motor and a silly long wheel base. the top load design makes it hard to do much of anything ecept BIG Lift and tires with a linked design. looking at Marv's Buggy i keep wanting to get my blazer done so i can buld a buggy with rockwells, 4 wheel steering.. yadda yadda yadda...
    anyway, it COULD be done. but Up travel on the front would have to be VERY minimal. and then move the engine around and the front axle as foreward as possible.

    all in my opinion anyway.
