A Durango Worth Your Time

There are a lot of guys out there building homemade suspension systems in their garage. How many of them do you imagine are mechanical engineers who have worked on projects like the Comanche helicopter and F-35 fighter jets? On top of those accomplishments, Jeff Lassegard has built high-flying bicycle suspension systems, has a love for kinetics, and has now designed suspension for a very uncommon off-road vehicle. When he emailed us pictures of his '03 Dodge Durango for our Rides section we wanted to see more. Did Jeff really make the Durango a worthy off-road vehicle?
