Yep I will have to add the intermediate tub supports as well.

I matched the spacing between the spring perch and tub on my 110 and by the time I lined it up with strings the spacing off the frame in the front of the tub also matched my 110. So in short, I don't think I raised the body to clear the arch. It's close, but I think it's where it needs to be

Just trying to get my hybrid project off the ground. Trying to find a truck to start with and considering the 109 pickup at ECR. If I can get a cheap enough rolling frame from a LWB and stretch it, this might be a viable option as the truck is a bit expensive for a body shell which is what it appears it would be to me.

Looking good! Glad you're bringing the 'ol girl back to life! Those wheel well "humps" (and the battery box bottom) were made by an old man who made air conditioning ductwork...was good friends with his sons, he did it for free!

I'll donate a good 90 windshield frame and glass to the project if you're not going to use that cut down NADA top......in case you were wondering, the old windshield was an SIII but I was missing the SIII brackets and hardware so I cut the hinges off an old SII bulkhead and windshield and welded them to that one.....that green tinted glass was cut out of an old Pullman railcar!

Thanks Wynn.


I'm not opposed to taking donations! That might be nice to have D90 windscreen. At this point I'm leaning towards a NAS style ST cage so that would look better with the correct windscreen. The hard top is certainly nice and I kinda hate to make it obsolete but a soft top is too tempting.

He did a good job on those those wheel wells, but I'm thinking they gotta go. I would like to be able to put lock boxes back there. It will be a lot of work because I will have to add to the tub sides and remake the arch. After lining up the tub it looks like I can add 4" bumpstops and it will keep the tires from rubbing.

Oh, the other day I found something you left behind. Some missing teeth.

Yeah, that was Helicopter Pad. Last trip to Tellico right before they shut it down.....had to come down Schoolbus and all the way back to camp with a chummed up diff. It was either that or come back DOWN Guardrail, and that's zero fun even with a fully functioning truck.

Been meaning to talk to Bill about that, that was a GBR 4.75 R&P, it shouldn't have done that....

Buddy of mine used to wheel a SIII with revolver shackles, the articulation he got was as much as a coiler...what he did was completely cut out the stock wheel wells and had some taller and wider ones made. Then he had a custom fuel cell made to fit in the narrower bed, and still had square wheel boxes to mount tool boxes on.

I'll hold on to the windshield frame, I don't get to your neck of NC often, I usually have to go to either Raleigh or through Chattanooga to Nashville.

Next time I'm going thru NC, I'll let you know and maybe we can meet up somewhere and I can hand it off to you....

I put the Safari Gard 3 link on this week. It was a tight fit but in the end everything looks pretty good. Does anybody know what the round tubes running along the control arms are supposed to do? It looks like I need to have them facing down because otherwise they hit my bulkhead outrigger. One write up I found shows them facing up.

I ran mine facing up on the disco but didnt have the outrigger issue. Honestly I'm not even sure why they put that silly little tube on there and why they didnt just make it of thicker dom or sleeve it.

I haven't done anything with the axle breather tube. It's currently broken off at the fitting on top of the axle but it doesn't look like it will be an issue.

Wow long time since I've been here.


If I cut these windscreen mounts off and put defender mounts on will I have any problems fitting a defender windscreen?

Is this getting too tall? It's about 4-5" taller than the 110 next to it. I have RTE 3" springs on it with 38" swampers.

I'm in the middle of bulkhead repair. I'm wondering if the bulkhead feet should be inserted into the pillar section before assembly. Because it's a separate piece one would think that it could be inserted later, but because if the indents for the wing mounts it doesn't look like it will slide in after fabrication. Any tips here?

I need to do this too, and I think you need to insert and weld it in first. I believe they are just separate pieces for ease of manufacturing and you might have trouble inserting after (but they need to be welded in anyway).

Ok thanks Galpin. If they get welded anyways then I'll put it in first. I'm going to get it dipped so I think it will be ok.

I can't imagine how these bulkheads last at all. There are so many layers stacked up one on top of the other. There is no way to make them last without dipping.

You mean these here doohickeys?

They can go on afterwards. I don't have new ones. But I would like to have it dipped first anyways.

No, I'm guessing he means the ones for the hinge screws. My plan was to put rtv in those, or maybe some screws.
