    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.

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

    Does it affect up/down travel differently than regular axles?
    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.

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
