As Tom W. points out, the chassis is custom, made with Jag-U-War suspension parts. Overload air bags were added at the rear to compensate for any loads that I may haul.

It handles well, especially for a truck, and has a nice ride. I used a Dodge Omni steering rack, which quickens up the steering. A friend who drove it described it as "slot car" handling, although that is an exaggeration ...

The Jaguar IRS does not have ideal geometry by modern race car standards, but it is pretty darn good, especially for a slow "shop truck." The Jag suspension pieces are also very strong and over designed for a car that weighs much more than my truck.
