You typically see used Hummer portals advertised from $100.00 to 250.00 each depending on the condition. When my mil scrap guy gets them we can pick 'em up for $50.00 each.

Post them up Bradley! Would love to see them.

Whoever the poster was didn't know what they were talking about or it was taken out of context. A portal box top speed would only be limited by combined vehicle gear ratio, tire diameter and engine RPM. I guess box design could limit top speed as far as longevity or strength, but that wouldn't play a part with a Hummer gearbox, they are plenty beefy.

BTW- good to finally meet you face to face, sorry we didn't get a chance to talk more outside the contingency interview. Unicorns and 4 leaf clovers, hah!

hey if any user found our spare tire, and our tool bag lost somewhere between the start and mile 19? I would be glad to trade it back for fabwork or build custom shocks for it??? the tire was on a KMC wheel and had a 39 inch bfg project, with a proto-type tire inflation system on it.

Up here we're not nearly so lucky

I've been keeping my eyes out for a project I've got in mind, the cost is tougher to justify around these parts.

Guys,

I didn't say what they could do, I said what they were "designed" to do.

H1 Portals in a KOH car is definitely cutting edge stuff, and if anyone can master it - It's Brad.

I loved the KOH car - was stoked to see it on Chocolate Thunder!

garand_engineering & Bradleys very cool rigs, interested in what center sections you guys used?

My friend Flip used 8.8 Centers when we built his rig, I wish we would of had a set of portal hubs available as it would of saved us from making our own knuckles.

I used nissan 300zx TT centers, custom made drive flanges that the discs and CV's bolt to. These centers are seriously beef! the ring gear is 9.05" and 1 3/4 thick...I couldn't find and 3rd that is built this strong, used these to eliminate another hard to get to failure point so the only thing I have to replace possibly is the axle/cv but even they are over built for the application. Ill post some more pics of that stuff if you need.

Dont quite know what the WMS is but the track width is 80" on stock 12 bolts, cant run to much wider here as our tracks are formed from years of std FJ40 cruisers and old landrovers carving into the dirt, any wider and you simply cant fit!
