In the past years, I used to get a lot of calls from Jeep owners wanting to go slow like the Toy trucks.

Hard to tell. When I look up "#RCLT" on Instagram there's just a bunch of southeast asian women with big tiddys :dunno:

I actually have been looking into making my own IFS portal setup :D but nothing to share at the moment. One thing is that I do not like how they designed their kit. I'm expecting some unknown roadblock that required them to make what appears to be poor design choices from the surface. But then again this whole Tonka craze is a poor design choice so.... All I'd like to say now is that I will be investigating it further this winter.

I think this says it all

Since the last week of June I've been working hard on something I've never done before. Went wheeling only once.. Have completely neglected my Tacoma.. Had wind taken outta my sails finishing up a particularly challenging project... It's been an incredible ride for sure.

An all-new, industry-first future awaits... #RCLT

I'm starting to think BJen is right. I don't see a portal box in the shadow :dunno:

Now you've reminded me of that time you tried to set the record "strait" with your "small amount of combustion gasses" tangent.

My guess


I'm surprised its easier to CNC and fabricate that versus having a beefier casting made? I would also say a solid cast unit would be stronger.
If you see it, its for sale.

I don't know how a spindle lift would be an industry 1st. plenty of examples of that type of product such as https://www.amazon.com/Maxtrac-Suspension-706840-Spindle-Toyota/dp/B00D3XX78I/ref=asc_df_B00D3XX78I/?tag=hyprod-20&linkCode=df0&hvadid=241994092016&hvpos=1o5&hvnetw=g&hvrand=3661701485054940711&hvpone=&hvptwo=&hvqmt=&hvdev=m&hvdvcmdl=&hvlocint=&hvlocphy=9031297&hvtargid=pla-569013313586&psc=1
A portal type hub would be a great way to keep factory axle angle while providing a lift.I hope that's what it is, that would be awesome

He didn't say spindle lift he said a plate knuckle. I seriously don't see where a portal box could be in that shadow.

Maybe if he didn't  put that stupid white spot right in the way we'd know!
