And thats just that POS thats been kicking around for a while already - they just removed the idiotic black stripes from the side and added lots of armor all. Just another attempt to find an uninformed buyer who will plunk down large $$$ for a vehicle of suspect provenance.

Its a 17.5k parts car, I hope the seller is stuck with it as long as possible. I really hate seeing these fly-by-night places (Red Mountain Rovers?) offering trucks that are clearly not worth anywhere near the asking price.

Curious, is that a aftermarket exterior roll cage? The mounting is out of place, compared to a 93...

I'm glad they atleast removed that sh*tty striping.

Yeah I was most interested in the roll cage. It appears to be after market.

Cage is ugly, body capings are bubbling rust as are the rear door hinge and 2nd row door bottoms. Mass title- guessing this will have some pretty good corrosion issues that will need to be addressed. Can't like all that amor all as Jim said. Paint certainly isn't blemish free. For 58-59k Jessie Wares NAS 110 with Copely looks like a far better truck for the money inmho.

I would definately call DOT with the vin number and make sure they blessed this truck on entry to be safe.

I like the location of the amp on the back of the cubby box. None of my three kids would even think to touch or play with that there.

We will begin seeing so many more of these craptacular 110's now.

I dig the 5 bar birma that's hiding a rear cross member that is probably swiss cheese.

Save your dime. look up calVIN, that will decode any LR VIN or serial #. I tried SALLDHM68VA112389 and that does not appear to be a LR #. On another note, as one who is importing putative legal 110's for resale, pointing fingers and drawing attention to others' activities is just a really bad idea. Sorry mate but it had to be said.

I've gotten a number of emails for various people regarding the 2 trucks that were listed in this thread about the sellers, or friends of the sellers, possibly getting in trouble for drawing attention to the listings or getting heat, or their posting was not accurate, etc.

I normally dont edit posts or threads but made a rare exception in this case..
If you know the sellers of these trucks in question, tell them to sort their mess out and pull their public listings which as of 5 minutes ago, were both still active. If these are such "hot" items drawing unwanted attention, maybe deleting the active eBay auctions and Autotrader listings would be a good start.
