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.

The husky has bars factory. The fairlead is stronger so I think it is a good idea.

Sighted on Block Island today. Very nice condition. Great looking frame. I felt like a creeper looking underneath.

Sighted my own during fireworks last night...sorry but I rarely see any around here. The value of an expedition rack is clearly demonstrated!

Saw this one at a gas station in glen cove New York. I let him know about d90. Girls were giggling about my lack of accent.
