Portal Axles

What are your thoughts on portals?  Let’s see some comments folks…

I, for one, would love to have a set, but what’s ideal?  Well, here is a quick list I’ve seen off the top of my head:

  • Tractor Axles
  • Unimog . Pinzgauer, Volvo, etc
  • Hummer H1 with stock independent suspenstion and CTIS
  • Hummer H1 portal boxes on Ford 9″ housing – sweet!
  • Axle Tech’s bolt-on portal boxes

Anyone else?  Any low dollar portal ideas out there?  I still like the H1’s idea of portals and independent suspension, but I’d like to see it with a different center section like a 14 bolt or Dana 60 so you can actually buy gears and lockers for it reasonably.  Well, I’m not sure if “reasonably” and portals really go together so well, but you get the idea.
