Lambert... Your on Big Jimny with a Jimny & there's a guy on ebay doing Jimny stuff called Lambert Engineering.... Why aren't you the same guys ? It's not as if Lambert is a common name like ... Dave.

Rhino Riders... a blast from the past.
Still talk to Leigh and have a few of his Suzukis.
X8GGY = K9 RJD Dave....  Ah ha !! Cymru am byth !!!!
There was something you said that I was going to answer in this next post anyway...
It was justifying the expense of the portals.
(I dont know how to do quotes so screenshot will have to do)
 
Ha!! I wish.
What I did do is a comparison of cost between the portals and the conventional way of doing a  4" lift with gearing and all the similar hardware as in the portal kit to run 235/85-16s.
Here's  how I how I justfied the added expense of the portals...

4" Suspension Lift.                 £1,100
Front HD 1/2 shafts.                 £600
Rear Full Floating Axle kit         £800
Rear Disc Brake Conversion.   £500
4 Manual Free Wheeling Hubs £200
410 t-case (19% hi reduction)  £300
SJ t-case conversion kit.          £300
Longer Braided Brake Lines.    £100
​Total.Propshaft Spacers.         £100
Total.                                        £4,000 = €4,800

My portals weren't much more, as like I said I got a "killer" deal. The 1998 - 2018 portals are a lot cheaper than the 2018+ whose price was quoted somewhere on this forum which i could certainly not afford.

Makes me think of the Mastercard add....

15" Clearance at the diff......PRICELESS.

And its that that drove me to go this way plus the stress the portals take off the diff & shafts. (But add to the axle cases.... shhh)
 

Looking for a nice clean and straight LHD Jimny..... Not any more.
Got one that seems to have been magnatized and driven through the "Big Jimny Bits" parts stores too quickly so it missed a few items.
