Yea, their beachrunners have that setup but this is built on a 93NAS so they retain full doors here. Door tops is prob a better look visually and these are more practical so either works for me.

Think of it this way, you wouldn't have to be on the wait list and then the months it takes to build. Its a sweet truck.

One of my all-time favorite ECR builds - running through some trade+cash dreams in my head right now
I'll buy your 97 and save you the trade in.

Actually it is just what the customer wants (customer is always right).

This project was going to be a Wagon and then the customer saw a BR110 and wanted one. So we did our best to blend what he had already paid for into a soft top style.

I like split doors myself, but the roll ups do seal up the interior a little better.

Funny story, I sold my 97 a few months back to get some funds together for a house I purchased. I have been complaining to my wife about selling the 90 and how I regret it. She wanted the house. I always talk to my wife about ECR and how I want to have a ECR rig. She tells me I should buy a clunker and send to to them so we can have a ECR 90. I have a big smile and then I showed her the price on this 110. She is having second thoughts on giving me the green light now. Anyway, I love this truck and if I had funds This is a sweet rig. (I do plan to find another 90 and send to ECR one day) Bucket list for me.

It is very well done. But the copley ad refers to a 6 speed trany and with the puma dash, why no mention of the engine? I'm assuming that's a puma purring under there.

Obviously I can't speak for ECR, but I would venture to say that it won't be as expensive as an Beach Runner build.

why. i hate the 1/2 doors. they are a pain in the butt putting them in and out, denting the skins.
these roll down / roll up. they seal tight.

why do people like the 1/2 doors so much??

Cuz its a soft top. I think a full set should come with this hooker because for $199K you shouldn't lust after anything else in life.

The glossy flares ruin it for me ....

Does it have a puma engine?

I always thought the ECR NAS 110 dormobile was the best build ever. I love that thing. The two doors on one side, one on the other was so out of the box cool.
