The real question is how much is ECR and Copley going to charge for it? Seems after that pickup 110 they had six figures doesn't seem far fetched.

It is kinda cool that Copely is actually ordering stock from ECR now.

Wonder when the 90 2.8's will be ordered.

That is cool (Stocking the trucks, not the truck itself)!

I like it, I guess, but only 'cause it's a 110.

My friend Mark is the one who came up with concept picture. He's been wanting to build that truck for years. He has asked Mike Smith at ECR about the project, but my understanding was that it was going to be over the budget. This was around 4 years ago...I actually have had that picture on my laptop! Too weird.

It would look very cool run it as a soft top double cab pick up :-) i'd have one!! and wouldnt be that hard existing roof would just bolt off just leaving the need to fabricate a cage and have a way of supporting the roof. But it could be done

The remains of that green 110 pick-up are now sitting behind BW Overland. I know the guy who bought it. Six hours after he took delivery it burnt to the ground due to a massive engine fire. He called Stuart at Copley and was told that it was in no way warranteed through them. The burnt chassis then ended up at BW Overland. Stop by and lay a wreath if you are ever heading through Kittery, Maine.

Oh my freaking goodness! I agree, you gotta have good insurance for that, but seriously, holy crap!


Everyone, check your oil lines.

I'm stunned the lines weren't replaced by Copley or ECR. Jeeze. Both down a notch in my book.

You have no idea how much of a shame it is to see that burned out, former beauty of a truck in person. I mean, CVC's is bad enough, but the state of this truck brings you to tears. Everything but the rear tub, charred. I can't imagine the horror. It's bad enough in person now.

I'm sure the fellow had insurance. But whether insurance covered the paid price, is a whole different issue. For some of you with highly modified $$ trucks, I totally recommend getting stated insurance value.

Doug, I believe the engine and hoses were only 2 years old with 10K miles. However they were not sleeved in anything, I think they were stock hoses (who know's if they were on a shelf for 10 years).

The owner did have insurance. He was covered completely. Still it was a damn shame.
