In the world of UTV portals, no name is as recognized or as respected as GDP. That’s partly because we’ve invested millions in state-of-the-art R&D facilities. But if you want to know the real reason why more riders choose GDP Portal Gear Lifts than any other brand, it all comes down to experience.
When we say our portals are made by riders and for riders, we mean it. So we usually don’t have to guess at what you want—we know, because we want the same things. We’re right there with you on the weekends, tearing up the trails and pushing our machines until they break.
And when we heard the communal cry for a way to go even bigger and badder with your side-by-sides, we didn’t just agree—we got right to work answering the call.
It took years of research, testing, and development, because everyone knows you can’t rush perfection. But they’re finally here: the Dual Idler GDP 6” Portal Gear Lifts.
These aren’t the only dual idler portals on the market, so let’s talk about what makes them different.
For starters, we’ll look at gear material. GDP gears are made using the best material possible. Our 9310 billet steel alloy is touted for high core hardness and high fatigue strength, and it blows all other gear materials out of the water.
This is the stuff you use if you want your gears to last. It’s so strong, it actually broke our state-of-the-art testing equipment during the development phase.
So if you’re wondering what makes dual idler GDP portals so great, it all starts with what they’re made of. We’ve got the toughest gear material in the industry, and it’s exactly what you need to machine the best damn portal gears imaginable.
So we’ve got strength on lock, but that’s not all it takes to produce unbeatable dual idler gear portals.
You can throw an extra idler gear into any set of portals, but if those two gears don’t mate perfectly, that second gear is pointless.
GDP gears are made with precision CNC grinding to ensure they mesh perfectly with every single rotation. Without that flawless mating, you’d notice a severe drop in performance. Dual idlers that don’t consistently mate with 100% accuracy may as well have a single idler.
Precision-ground gears also guarantee quiet and cool performance. No matter how high you push that speedometer, you’ll never have to worry about getting sidelined due to the gears overheating.
Dual idler gear portals aren’t for the faint of heart. Nobody opts for dual idlers just so they can get a little lift here or a little extra torque there.
When we designed GDP dual idlers, we had the relentless riders in mind. The hardcore off-roaders who are constantly pushing themselves and their machines to the breaking point. The mud lovers and rock crawlers who have never, in their entire lives, turned away from a challenge.
Dual idler gear portals are for riding hard and going big.
That’s why you’ll appreciate that the dual idler gear option of our GDP 6” portals also adds a 1” offset, allowing you to run even larger tires.
When it comes to monster builds, every inch counts.
There’s no denying the dual idler gear GDP portals are impressive as hell. But are they right for you?
If you’re looking for bulletproof strength that you can’t find anywhere else, dual idlers are for you.
If you’re shooting for an over-the-top, jaw-dropping, neck-breaking build to show off at the ride park, dual idlers are for you.
If you’re a “go until it breaks” type of rider who only has one setting—full send—dual idlers are definitely for you.
Basically, if you’re looking for mind-blowing toughness and a new era of high-performance riding, this is the portal lift for you.
These portals aren’t for the average rider. They deliver more torque and power than you know what to do with, and they make “going big” look like child’s play. With dual idlers, we’re going massive.
Didn’t think dual idlers mattered? They don’t, unless they say GDP. Ours are the only dual idler gear portals that are precision ground and built for battle.
The dual idler gear configuration is now available in select GDP 6” Portal Gear Lifts. Choose between a 30%, 45%, and 60% gear reduction.
Whichever option you go with, one thing’s for sure—your ride will never be the same.
