Quick question on that Salisbury rear...is it 24-spline? So a stock D90 rear axle could replace it?

It isn't perfect, but considering what they had to work with, I'm impressed.

I was thinking Coniston Green would look nice but with the black top that white will really be sharp (and cooler too)!

Looking good, Jack. It'll be fun to watch that thing come together.

I believe on this truck that is true, but I don't think it's the same for later trucks.

Are you considering ever fitting power steering to the MOD? I don't know how needed that would be on the street but at slow speed offroad I can see that might be desirable.

Jack, here is the perfect accessory for that 110:

Completely street-legal, 12" ground clearance, sub-400 lbs.

I just found Mike Smith's write up on this ECR truck:





http://www.eastcoastrover.com/SummerRunner.html

I'm laughing because I've been plotting for so long about how I want my 110 to look and now that I see this truck , it's awfully similar to the picture in my head. In fact, I was just recently emailing with john about the ST tire carrier set up and whether I could adapt it to my truck (it will be a bit tricky, but i think i'm going to convert from drop down tail gate to swing out with latch) so I can carry my sixth tire on the back.

Now this ECR truck isn't the holy grail to me, frankly it seems like putting the cart before the horse to build a truck that basically already exists, but it's cool to see a realization in more or less the same paint scheme.

I just go my new ST from exmoor like the one in the pic, except black and w/o windows.

This truck has no snorkel, but I just ordered the mantec bracket from RN to mount the NAS style snorkel that I have to the window frame b/c I have no NAS roll cage around the windshield.

I have individual jumps for the back, instead of benches and I'll be reflooring with starboard instead of rhinolining, but i think it will look very similar.

Mike also chose the factory galvanized hoop set for the hood (ST) whereas I opted to ditch it and have one fabbed in 1.5 steel, but again, the layout is the same.

I'll have a tire on the hood and the rear, instead of just the back. And I'll have the shovel mount on the fender wing. I also won't be running a NAS rear step and instead will have the Safari Gard square hitch. This truck has no sliders and I have the Mantecs.

Initially I will have the NAS A-bar bumper, but later I will probably switch to something very simple like the LRNA bumper Mike used or the CT style bumper david and john run (but w/o brush bar)

What I'm liking about my truck over the converted NAS is the full seperation between the cab and bed, and the jerry can compartments on the side. What I'm jealous of is that Mike started out with a much cleaner truck.

I was curious if anyone has any thoughts about the ECR truck and what you like and don't like.

I'm not digging the diamondplate tops on the wings and I think the solenoid box mounted above the winch looks hideous. But otherwise the truck looks nice.

I agree.

No diamond plate on the truck, especially with the shovel on the wing, and if I ever get a winch on this truck, I think there's only one choice...


I was planning on putting two hella 550 driving lights on the factory a bar and then putting the hella double worklamp where my reverse light is (to the right of the license plate).
thoughts?

This truck has no aux. lights and it looks very clean, so I almost don't want to add anything. But then again the 90/110 lights (even H4s) are so minimal after what I'm accustomed to in the disco that I'd really like to supplement those weak headlights.

seats

Are all 3-door D110s like the ECR one or more like Jack's with the separate cab/bed? That is the nice benefit of Jack's b/c he could even run a cab softop if he wanted too. Also, it's nice to separate the bed from the cabin so stuff doesn't slide into the driver's area. The individual jump seats will work out quite well b/c those bench seats are just asking you for the pain.

I'd have to see it mocked up to make the call.

Read has the 550's in the A-bar, so you can take a look at his truck to see if you like.

I can understand that.

I've been jealous of John Lee's rig for a long time.

Your new grocery getter is the 2nd rig to make it to my "I'm jealous list".

I like it even more with each decision you make.

That's going to be one fine rig, for sure!!

I sincerely hope you enjoy every second of your planning and build.

I'm enjoying watching the process.

Best Regards Jamie, Blue, and Angel

I've been corresponding with Mike Smith and apparently mounting the NAS ST swing out tire carrier on a 3 door 110 tub requires reinforcing the body work on the mount side. Mike says the tub flexes like crazy under the load of the tire carrier so it has to be fortified.

More complicated than I thought, but I still think it's worthwhile.

Mike said they are doing another one right now and he'd take pics for me when they get to that part.

Very helpful guy.

Not the best way but an option to mount to the MOD.

JSQ,

I like the ECR overall, but the seats always remind me of the game viewing trucks. I guess my question would be if are you going to always be transporting people? If so what about roll protection?

The SD Military Roll with the hoop over the front seats would be very cool. Different.

ST carrier is nice, but I can't tell you how many folks on D-90 complain about rattles and them coming loose. Mantec?

Also, what about the bulkhead behind the seats? Is it staying? Opens up the Truck Cab option.

Lastly I would change the Euro rear panels and lights to NAS. I know some cop somewhere will take issue with the Euro style config.

Love the white though.

There is a new NAS style brush guard available. It's kinda G4 funky. And will most likely be on my truck since the dealer can't get the 97 from LRNA and the insurance co wants OEM and dealer parts only...

EwS

That mount requires a completely different roll cage,hoop set and hood; and it's a terrible place to have the tire.
