    There has been some discussion on the DTLC list about the portals that come out of the Dyna bus.

    My conception is to take a set(I do believe they are indepentant) and affix them to a common cruier axle with 3.73 gears. You would have the strength of the larger R/P and the outer gear ratios to drop it down for crawling.

    Good.........?
    Bad..........?

    Heck, the 440/442 auto trans. comes from it, why not go for the portal, too? I like it. Just keep custom consumable parts to a minimum.

    The biggest problem is finding the axles of course. If it was hard for WJM to find the right pictures of the Dyna or the Coaster, imagine finding a junked one in person. The Mega Cruiser is also rare even in Japan. Maybe C-dan can order you the parts . . .

    Then imagine a broken Toyota portal hub in the middle of nowhere.

    My Uncle used to have up to a few months ago a 1980 Coaster into Camper Van with 3B and 3 speed Column Shift, But it did'nt have Portals. Just had the huge Diff Housing, With possible 5.29's? - The Tyres were 7.5 16 on the front and on the rear were same with Duelies. :cheers:
