My favorite 110. Great work! I hope to copy the crap out of this truck sooner or later. .

Edit: Minus all your sheet metal fab...ridiculous.

Will, Its made out of aluminum and its very thick. I dont have the exact dimension but its around 3/16" (Its probably an overkill)

digging the d2 seat setup and your interior overall. Has me thinking that a d2 rear seat in a 130 where it never needs to fold forward would be the bee's knees.

You know I have so much envy for this build. Looks awesome. I hadn't seen the update with the Raingler nets - they look great!

With Mantec snorkels going away, you have an opening for a product!

Truck looks great. I'm a traditionalist but strangely, I dig those back seats. They're not stock but the Disco seats look more proper than some Recaro five-point racing bullshit seats.

I had my guys here at my manufacturing facility draw the parts and cut the metal. The original Mantec I had was designed to be mounted on the side of the fender. I (my shop guys really) salvaged the bent tube and welded it on the new fender vent plate.
