Seems the anti ECR posts always happen on Mondays.
We must have some Bob Geldorf fans here

Don't know if anybody noticed, but ECR is currently finishing a NAS 110 rebuild which has the NON conforming TDCI engine, etc, it looks like a new truck! ..............Just saying........ perhaps they should shop themselves?

It's that "urban camouflage" pattern, just missing a couple shades of gray.

In the end it's the client/customer who will get F*cked, so let's leave that alone.

These stories never get old, so keep them coming!

They also worked on a TDCI (put on a cage) yet posted so many photos it would seem as if they rebuilt the entire truck. Anyone in a stereo shop could make a "custom alloy speaker mount".

I inquired on here a long time ago about a double din unit in a td5 dash...ECR posted as if it was the most complicated job in the world.

I spoke with someone in the UK and it is as simple as installing a specific unit that is less deep. I cross-referenced the list with US double din units and got a price for 450 dollars including the install at a local shop.

I get their marketing and didn't expect a reply from them on here regarding the double din unit...but there was no need tocomment as if it was an impossible task only they could accomplish.

Pictures of the TDCI they put fog lights and a cage on...

That would be a good write-up over in your old thread for those thinking of doing the same someday. Did you flush-mount it or does it stick out?

it's not hard, however it is a tight fit front to back when you flush mount the unit.

The factory td5 dash looks much better than those MUD dashes I've seen, and using the factory dash does take a good bit of modification.

If you want one, let me know.

Funny when I used to post about ECR everyone thought I was scum. I do like that blue NAS 110 that is a puma. I have no doubt they bought every part separate and hand assembled it. No way they bought a complete truck, swapped the frame and threw on some paint. That wouldn't make sense at all.

Carey, you suddenly have a big mouth. Don't you work there? It wasn't that long ago you were asking about a certain british flag truck to stir the pot for your bosses.
