I can't recall it having that license plate but probably it's the one. Chris may have worked in it a couple months ago.

Not one he worked on, but the black 110 on a flatbed that he passed on highway.

This is the one he worked on. I've seen it in Manhattan as well.

That's why I wasn't sure about that truck. It's a nice truck for sure. My boat was docked about 20 feet from it! Wonder if he had a boat docked there.

Saw this one at Grand Lake last week. Wife was kind enough to take a photo. Had California plates.

Did it have a FL tag in the back? We have family that go to Ocean Reef (the flag/plate on the front). But I have never seen it down there and was visiting for a week over Easter.

Would love to get back there for a summer sesh. Maybe I can bring one of the kids back out for summer camp. My buddy's kid is supposed to be going out there for ski race camp - will have to ask him how it went when I see him next.

I have seen a decent amount of them over the years. We used to go down 2-3x a season but usually make it 1x now. Are you a member?

Sister Act....

....or "Brotha from anotha motha" if we're being "urban" today.

So, it's technically only a single sighting because mine is the Epsom 110, but it's still a cool side-by-side shot I thought you guys could appreciate. How often do you see two green 110's side-by-side. Good comparison actually. Mine is an ROW with many-many NAS-spec goodies and the Conniston green is a NAS 110.

Conniston is one of my favorite Defender color options but I'd make some small changes to this NAS example. Not being critical at all because its a great truck, but the side step bars take away from the truck IMO and the road tires and alloys also take away from the look. No problem with Boosts or other alloys but I'd love to know where the original D110 rims are sitting right now because whether they stayed white or were color-matched conniston I think the original steel wheels have just the right offset and look. If my information is correct, this is an older ECR build and its holding up really well. Didn't meet the owner, but have seen this truck in multiple spots including ACK over the years. Nice to see it out there and being used.

NAS #1499 in Steamboat Springs. I'm not sure what's up with the pink sliders or the odd winch mounting.

Was the plate on that 110 "SUNY1"? If so, I have seen that truck before. From what I have heard it has not been, mechanically, well maintained. (I guess I just defeated the purpose of the blacked out plate???)

What is odd about the winch mounting?

It is a husky in a Mantec bumper? Very nice set up.
