Those beadlocks are pretty sick looking. And the front bumper/stinger looks like a copy of the EVO 1/4 pounder and stinger.

It is the Evo stinger. There are also glimpses of the Evo tire carrier in some of those pics.

nope, it's an EVO mfg bumper. Mopar has a trend of owning the stuff that gets bolted onto their vehicles.

I'm pretty sure thats because it is. If you look at the next to last picture you will see a Jeep in the back ground running the evo tire carrier. Very interesting!

Man, I was just too slow with all the other people hoping in there before me! I have to say its a good looking Jeep and has such a wide range of products on it.

Only thing they don't say that is on it is the type of lift.....

I bet there is not lift. Just the Portal Axles.

Has to be some sort of lift. It's running fox shocks. Even with the portal axles and flat fenders I would think it would be hard to run 42's without something.

It's a debadged EVO 1/4 pounder.

Anyone know what the deal is with the four round holes in it?

Those portal axle add something like 4-5" of lift plus flat fenders would be enough.

nope, it's running stock coils. the portals give it 5" of lift just by being there.

I was wondering the same thing about the headlights! Too tough to tell from the angle.

The front axle is $12,500 and the rear is $11,000. Search "Mopar Portal Axles" and click on the allpar link. This is the best breakdown I have seen for the exact same set that seems to be on this Jeep.

Man! They need to make those portal axles more affordable , they are beautiful! - Anyone know who makes that rear bumper? It looks familiar, but I can't seem to place it right now. Thanks guys! :thumb:

I could almost buy a new jeep with the money to buy portal axles cause you would have to install both together. Crazy! but they are beautiful
The JW speakers aren't so cheep either running around $800 for the pair

Agreed ... Jeep needs to release matte colors in production ... the new commando green on the '13s would look sick if it was matte

Can someone explain how you get 5.5" of lift from the portal axles?

Can someone explain how you get 5.5" of lift from the portal axles?

From what I understand, the hub is actually lowered which essentially pushes the wheels down away from what would be the center of the axle. This essentially naturally gives you a lift as the tires are moved away from the body. If you zoom into the photos you'll see how the hubs appear offset and the diff housing is so high off the ground.

Honestly those headlight look like they are from Harley Davidson. I have the same one in my Street Glide. From Harley they are a little over $500 for one, but it does look it might work in the Jeep. Here is a pic of the HD one.

Is this the same concept?

So other than the ground clearance at the differential how do portals affect articulation and an overall build for crawling?

If you're getting 5 inches of lift without touching the coils and wanted to run coilovers would you just install a set of coilovers equivalent to whatever ride height of stock coils?
Does it affect up/down travel differently than regular axles?

you will still be limited to stock wheel travel/articulation.


If you're getting 5 inches of lift without touching the coils and wanted to run coilovers would you just install a set of coilovers equivalent to whatever ride height of stock coils?

you would have to unless you did some serious modifications to allow for taller coil overs or made your jeep sit sky high.

the axles? no.

portals are cool and all but, they still don't have the speed sensors figured out and if it were me, i'd still take a prorock 60 with big coil over flex any day of the week. but, that's just me.
