    They call it the Ultimate 80, and I hope it gets to deserve that name :)

    Makes you think. I wonder how hard it would be to go 80 inners to HMMWV portals.

    Nice project!

    The reason the 9" is so popular for portal hybrids is the availability of high ration gears. A FJ-80 inner could only go 3.73 in the middle.

    As for Hummer portals, I dont know how much reduction is there, but on my Mog portal it is 2.13 at the box.

    3.70 x 2.13 = 7.88 in the axles....a tad low.

    I am using 2.75's in the 9" and that takes me to 5.89 overall.
