No it could not be used as a daily driver. The tires would catch fire as soon as they hit pavement. Trust me I know from experience.

Im in the middle of a similar type build using a YJ, with a catch. Warm, dry comfortable, LCG on 40s, driven long distance on the highway if I so choose, but not daily driven.

The catch is im shooting for a rig that is capable of high speed desert blasts. These ultra LCG rigs do not do well flying down the desert and catching much air. Look at the KOH vehicles. They still sit quite high. Rock racers still sit quite high cuz they hit the obstacles with a vengeance and belly hight is important. Ya of course you can use bumps stops.

Look at the 'project acrophobia' build on here. There's a low YJ to envy.

Why would you want to daily drive something on 40+ tires? Seems like it would suck having to buy huge ass tires just wear them out on the street. I would also think gearing for your particular engine's sweet spot would be crucial for any semblance of fuel economy. Unless you live a mile or two from work, in which case I'd say ride a bike

I'm sorry to sidetrack a thread but whats all the hype of this LOW COG stuff. I understand the concept, more stable and such but some of these jeeps belly height isn't much higher than my 2wd truck I drive to work every day. How exactly is that supposed to work so amazing on rocks. Just scrape around all day?

If your wheelin grounds is rocks, Like Johnson valley, than crazy low rigs do scrap and drag everywhere.

I am running 42's on virtually no lift and a 112" WB, for my type of wheelin it works great.

LCOG's not for everybody, and a web wheeler may never understand.
