My 110 is my daily driver and I have an office job, and also take my 9 and 6 year old to school. The folding side steps make getting in and out effortless for not only me, but also my kids.

I have a full slider set I bought from another forum member that I need to have shipped out to me, but even after I fit it, I'm still going to try and figure out how to have the folding steps mounted for day to day. I would just remove them for off road trips that involve hard trails. Besides, they make perfect side tables for folding chairs at a campsite. My beer or tumbler is just at the right height

Henery, the 38.5" dimension I gave is to the eyebrow, which is lower than the edge of the aluminum fender. Not sure how the series and defender panels compare either since the series have more of a tear drop shape to them.

I have a 2" lift kit and I'm telling you from my experience that dislocation cones are surely needed unless you enjoy jacking up your rig to bang your springs back in place. However, if you're not going off road or driving fast on extremely rough roads, you may get away with not having them.

Unless you have the wrong shocks and bump stops, this couldn't be farther from the truth.


I have had many of my "D" with 2" and one with 3" ( I ended up retaining the spring as I put longer shock, taller towers and lower Bump stops ) and never had that situation.

Tired springs will cause dislocation

Thank you for the suggestions and concerns on cones and stepping up(crotch) concerns.
Is there a commom measureing spot that the S3 and Defender share to compare heights? chassie bottom?
kjva any rubbing issues & what is a 38" tyre? 315 series? Had concidered 9.00x16's though they would've been biasply and not too sure the noise and flatspots would be kind to the 110 or my hearing.
I do like the look of your 110!!!
