Hey, I'm just happy to see some good data flowing on early 110s. We're obviously going to see more and more coming in, if we can cut down the learning curve on lifts a bit for the next guy, so be it.

The ultimate goal is the Family camper truckster thing. I have an extended range Fuel tank for it, A roll cage from SD, I'm having a Water tank built for the side opposite the extra fuel tank. Once I get that done then the cabinets go in. The dogs will occupy the space behind the passenger seats (at 100 pounds each it's almost enough space, so I'll need to build a dog guard.

In the mean time I'll need to extend the 3/4 roof rack it has and stick one of my RTT's up there. Behind it we will haul the M416 trailer with it's own RTT and water tank plus the gear that doesn't go on the roof. Soft stuff in Helli bags on the roof, hard stuff in the back of the truck or in the trailer.

That's how it goes with four people plus the dogs. If i where to actually go away with jsut my wife we would just have the truck to take and leave the trailer behind.

It will also need to serve time as my DD, hauling diff's axle housings, tubing and other product and raw materials.

So you see as I build it I am trying to cover many scenarios, make it as multi pupose as possible.

He's gonna be a very busy truck!!!!

My plans for the 110 so far had extended to a baby seat, a cattle dog and a keg. Somehow I feel serioulsy outclassed all of a sudden . . .

I'm sure you'll find more uses for your truck Tony LOL! As a matter of fact to justify my owning of this very impractical vehicle I needed to dream up ways to make it practical!

Drive it like you stole it?!?!?!?
Kind of reminds me of that Top Gear when they tested the Vans and had to try an outrun the Stig with his police car.

That is exactly why mine is now a 5 seater and the cabinetry will go in place of those six people..

Practical? I find myself struggling to NOT compare my big expensive money pit with something that makes more sense..

Of course none of the other options are nearly as unique!

It you want to get the 110 experience pull four of the injectors out of that 6L, add 6" of ridged foam to the door panels to make sure you have no elbow room, take out all the isulation in the body, block off the heater hoses in winter and leave them wide open in summer. Remove all the rubber door seals, put a 5" lift on it take out the sway bars, put tall skinny tires on it, and hire sombody to hang onto the roof rack and bang on the roof with a mallet if you go above 45 MPH. Also be sure to route the tailpipe to the inside, put a piece of moldy cheese under the drivers seat to add that wonderful wet weather smell. Even these days pay the parts man 3X what the part for the truck would normally cost, saw halfway through the axleshafts and go on a trail..

Oh! And replace all the steering links with 1/2" EMT conduit

But then you already knew that!

Gawd I love these trucks!

ROFL. That's hillarious... and true!

Yes, of course I have been joking all along. There is no rational explanation for any of it, and I don't even try. You either love em or hate em. It's that simple. I'm a lover

"I NEED my 110 like themaxx needs a hole in his head" Ha!

Good one Keith. You forgot to add (for some of us) we also have to shift with our left hand and sit on the ditch side of the truck, and sagging headliners, and next to no rear visibility from the rear view. I love my 110.

A few hits on google show some US suppliers, about $150 each

nice looking truck. i like the early 110's with the galvanised cappings and series type doors. just needs a bigger intercooler, fuel pump tweeking. has it been fitted with a disc brake rear axle?

front brakes solid or vented?

Thanks, Jamie -- I wound up getting another castor from Will Tillery for $50 shipped, it's in very good shape.

It's disc front, drum rear, and to be honest I'm surprised at how much I like the drum brakes, they're far more effective than I anticipated. Keith has kindly passed on the parts list for the conversion and as I can't leave anything alone, it'll be converted I'm sure.

Now, can anyone confirm that the corner/directional lights on the early 110s are actually series 3 lights? The plastic backings on mine all shattered from age when I pulled them to replace the headlights. They have 1' pigtails semi-permanently attached to the assembly and appear to be RTC5012 and RTC5013. If that's the case my assumption is that the rears will be RTC5523 and RTC5524. Not too surprisingly it appears that George is the low-price option for those P/Ns.

Tony,

I replaced all of the lights on the front of my truck. The clears and turns are all about $12 each from George or Rovers North with the 14 inch wiring attached. I installed them all, turned them on and nothing- they come without bulbs- dooohhhh

Yes, pre 300Tdi 90/110's had series 3 type lights (with the little brass ferrule bullet shaped thing that you push through a razer sharp piece of curved spring metal!)

if you're going to convert the drum braked axle into disc, may i point you into the direction of LR4x4 and a tech article i did on an axle i converted.

you may need to log in to get the pictures, if it's a hassle i can upload the whole article onto here for everyone to enjoy.

you're right... the 110 drums to "pull up well", but they're a PITA when you're going through mud and poo, forever needing adjusting with the twin snail cams.

you'll love rear discs!!

if you need a hand finding part numers for older (pre or non NAS 110's) then just give me a shout.... i've got plenty of reference material here on paper and microcat.
