Truggy Pre-Runner: Another Stewart's Raceworks Creation
Get ready to launch into the dirt behind the seat of a Truggy. That’s right—Truggy. Part truck, part buggy. This morphed desert machine is rare, but if you’re lucky enough, you may catch a glimpse of one racing through the desert.
As some of you may recall, we did a feature on the TSCO Ford Raptor Luxury Pre-Runner that Stewart’s Raceworks built earlier this year. Craig and his crew know how to build amazing off-road vehicles, so when the opportunity presented itself we had to check his Truggy out.

The Truggy concept is smart—independent front suspension and a solid rear axle for added wheel travel. Stewart incorporates the latest design technology and successfully fuses the toughness of a Trophy Truck with the agile characteristics of a Class 1 buggy.
Riding in a Raceworks Truggy makes the harshness of the desert disappear. It shares many of the same suspension components as the Raceworks Luxury Pre-Runner, making it one plush desert ride.
The open cockpit gives the Truggy a completly different look and feel than a pre-runner truck. Some people prefer the freedom this design offers. One of those people is Sherrie Stewart, Craig’s wife. “You feel more like when you’re racing … you feel the speed, and with the lower profile, you can slide into the corners full throttle and know you’re not going to roll over.”
This is the third Truggy Stewart has build for Sherrie and himself. Sherrie likes the luxury pre-runners her husband builds, but she has a special preference for the Truggy.
Let’s take a closer look at what makes the Stewart’s Raceworks Truggy so unique.
GETTING PLASTERED, IN A GOOD WAY
The Stewarts spend a lot of time in Plaster City—just 95 miles outside of San Diego, CA. This popular area is the testing ground for many top off-road race teams in Southern California. “Craig knows the area like the back of his hand” says Sherrie. “I pile in my girlfriends and Craig takes us on a wild ride.”
She adds, “you’ll think you’re about to go one way and suddenly he’s pulling a 180 and us girls are screaming and laughing our asses off at the same time. I’m sure Craig would tell you there’s nothing like making a car full of chicks scream.”
We’ve been out with Craig to Plaster City, and Sherrie is not exaggerating. The man can drive and will make even a bunch of rough-n-tough dudes scream like little school boys.
