    Okay lets spice up the pot a little, dreaming of a BJ74 with dyna portals(Keep dreaming).

    Also thinking of buying a 74 and cutting the fire wall out and making it left hand drive(Still have that fire wall Sheldon?).

    I cannot find the pics of the 70 on either this site or pirates, good reading.

    What do you think, would it rock..............

    after seeing Peter's sprung over 74 (tons of ground clearence and nice and stable)...i doubt you would ever need to portal it. but if you do post pics.

    Rob I have a set of Volvo portals and a set of Mog portals on hand. I live in Japan. Does this tell you anything about the availability of the Dyna portal axles?

    Make me an offer on one of my sets :)

    Hmmmmmm, if I were not starting a online catalogue for cruiser and spent all my money on parts I might take you up on that.

    My dream of a BJ74 with portals will come true if I have anything to do with it.

    I saved one of the pics. IIRC there was another pic that was from the rear that showed the axles better.

    I didn't even notice that until you pointed it out. You can really see it in the second pic can't you. Looks like they mounted them on the wrong sides of the rig... :p
