Want more clearance but don’t want to raise your suspension?
Check out these portal axles.
Engineered and designed in Victoria by Marks 4WD Adaptors, these clever things already replace the live-axle assemblies fitted to Patrol models from 1988 onwards.
Soon they will also be available for Land Cruiser 70s.
The Land Cruiser prototype (pictured) includes heavy-duty swivel housing, with the rear-axle track width increased to match the front axle.
The finished product will be available once it's fully tested and certified.
In the meantime, you can ogle this Toyota, with its tweaked V8 diesel engine and six-speed automatic transmission riding high on the portal axle prototype.
Or if you own a Nissan, similar portal axles currently fit to GU Nissan Patrols, Y61 Nissan Safaris, GQ Nissan Patrols, and Y60 Nissan Safaris.
Marks 4WD Adaptors was established in Melbourne in 1979.
