Actually, it should work just fine if you input the numbers right.

Front axle is moved forward a few inches... Axle is wider and tires are out further.... Front fender is chopped underneath the light box front cover.... Fenders are clearanced a bit along the front edge corner..... Air bumpstops to adjustably limit the uptravel....

We shall see how it all clears? Looks like it will be no problem though.

Hey Fawkers! Portal Schmortal...

I'm not hating here but some of us are still 10 spline, locker-free and proud.

and still holdin' up trail traffic while we bash it a few times, maybe drop in a 'fresh' $25 diff or $10 axle and bash it some more

nothing wrong with 10's or with portals for that matter- just different strokes for different folks.

Now that fugly green Dodge double portal baby doo-doo wagon is another story..

Got some more work done in the shop today. Finished linking up the front, and installed the hydro ram on the front axle, and flexed it up on the lift.

And a look at the backend of the front links (which are 1.5 0.25wall DOM on the top, and 1.75" 0.25 wall on the bottom links).

And finally a front fender clearance shot. This is maximal intereference we could generate. This is at full stuff as well. Not too bad, but need to trim the bumper a bit more.

Billster,

Have you got a close up of your high steer arms?? Or could tell me how you did them? Did you machine/grind the knuckle at all to give you enough room to get some meat around the bolts. Is the piece that bolts to the knuckle one piece?

Im putting rear steer on the mogrover and Im up to the highsteer bit.

Sam

Hey Sam,

They are a pair of Weps high steer arms. They consist of two plates bolted together. There is no grinding involved in the install, they are bolton. You take out the top 6 bolts holding the portal together, and bolt the horseshoe portion of the high steers on, then bolt the arm onto the horseshoe with 2 BIG bolts. Very simple, and very strong. I got them second hand from a fellow PBB member. Usually sell for about $250 US new though (which is not too bad).

Billster,
What caster angle are you running at ride height? Also could you post a pic of the backside (links and mounts) of the front axle taken from ground level at the back of the rig? i am having trouble picturing the links.

Just had another look at my axles - when you bolt the horseshoe plate onto the knuckle there must be some spacers or something that go on first?? On my axles where the origional 6 bolts are located there is a fair bit of unmachined cast material around them and I dont think that the C plate would bolt up cleanly. Im thinking I need to grind the cast down flat or make up some spacers (similar to a few stacked washers)

Thats one seriously badass rig. Bill, how are you going to get the coilovers on the outside of the frame? It looks like a tight fit with the portal boxes further in than a typical axle. I like the fender trimming job, not too much.

Lookin good Bill. I like the front 4-link. Are you going to rely on the triangulation of the lowers links to locate the axle since you have full hydro?
What is the width of the front housing from flange to flange where the knuckles bolt on? Are you happy with the offset of the front diff? If so what is it

Looking good.
Have you ever seen a power steering suction hose on a Range Rover Classic? They have a hard plastic swirl wrap around them that is removable from the hose. It protects well from abrasion type leaks. I save that hard plastic protector when I replace those hoses. If I were working on your truck I would wrap the hydo hoses in some of that plastic protector stuff. Those hoses look like stratoflex so I think they can be trail fixed if you have extra hose with you as well. That is prolly how you planned it, I imagine. Just some thoughts for you all. Seems like you all are executing your project quite well.
Also I like to run my hot wire for the winch inside heater hose when running it to the battery. To protect it from abrasion. I think I mentioned this to Bill when I was allowed to view the creature in its lab. Once again details I am sure you all are aware of.

Hope to see it on the trail next week.

JP

How much vertical separation do you have between the upper and lower links at the axle end and what's the length of the links?
