charles, all the research that i have done points to disco series 1 wheels will work. but, you will most likely lose the center cap. the deep dish style is what i want to go with. did you send the email what is on my signature at the bottom of every posts. it should go thru and i do check my email daily. i don't use the yahoo acct any longer so that one was turned off. thanks

Ok, sounds like It might have gone to the wrong address then - I used whatever the site has on record (you don't get to see it).

I don't know about the deep dish rims, so do let us know how that works out. I'd still try test fit one on the front before buying.

Mark,

Charles came out this weekend and we tried one of the "deep dish" on the rear hub. It does fit, you just loose the center cap as you indicated. Charles then tried it with a 30mm spacer I had lying around and that pushed it way too far out.

Just FYI, it's the fronts on my truck that bottomed out (the rears fit fine too).

If your front hubs do not stick out further than the rear then you will be ok, but if they do, then I do not believe the deep dish rims are any deeper where it matters.

Good meeting you this weekend Doug!

First Mark, we need an update! How is it going? More pics please!

Second, here are some pictures I took to try describe the hub depth issue for alloys. It shows how my front hubs stick out about 0.5 inch more than the rears. The alloys fit on the rear, not the front. I suggest measuring yours.

All you need is longer wheel studs to fix the problem right?

Longer studs with the spacer rings might do the trick. If you've got the same hub clearance issue, another option (obviously) is going to non-LR wheels. I bought these 17" Pirelli alloys from George at RDS a few years back. They've got a more generous hub opening than the LR ones...

Good luck. Your project is looking good!

No Jim, as Aric says it's the hub opening size that needs to be bigger (well, deeper).

I'm willing to bet this has been solved 10 times over in the UK with aftermarket rims like the Pirelli's mentioned above.

Good looking truck Aric!

jeff, thanks. now i can see it. did you just lighten his image?
side runners are installed now they fit like a glove and look factory correct. i have been trying to finish the wife's wrangler 95% done with her truck. jumped over to a disco i just bought. lifted it 2" and put 265's with steelies on. got a good deal on that truck. good winter driver. i hope to work on the 110 some more this week. hope those deep dish alloys show up soon. more to come.

put a hitch and rear steps on. fabbed up the bar to connect the t-supports yesturday. not installed yet but the bar is made and it will work and look great once i design and install the mounting brackets. cutting the second bracket design today. i will post some more pictures soon. i bought some used tuffy boxes for the rear. still waiting for the alloys i bought. think i am going to put 285's mtrs on them. i could use some running boards for this truck. it sits really high! wonder if i could trade my d90 running boards to someone for 110 boards? more to come soon.

Follow-up Post:

picture of new bar that will be installed.

RDS had some of the "tomb radier" style running boards a while back. Those are the kind that are a single thicker tube, sit up tighter to the sill, and have chequer plate on top. I think they'd be a good look on a ST 110.

Is Chris at Badger making you a top?

Follow-up Post:

Oh, do you think you should paint the b-pillar above the door caps black? That way it would match the door tops. Just a thought.

i have 2 surrey tops that i am going to have stitched together once i get to that point.

Hey Mark, did you run into any issues with the spare tire carrier mounting brackets interfering with the rear tail light positions?

thanks

no, that tail light was fine where it was. but, i did moved them down to where the reverse and red fog lights were. and i am using my rear work light as a reverse light. i had to move those down because of how the corner cage brackets mounted. doug's alloys look good on his 110. i can't wait until mine get here. i like that look alot better.

Yes more pictures!

Mark, do you have your roll bar mounted yet? Have any close ups of the top of the B pillars?

I visited a friend with a tube bender this weekend to shoot some ideas off him for doing a "cheap" topless setup. The current plan is a simple hoop between the two pillars, and some internal bracing of the pillars. One thing that occurred to me was that the ears at the top of the pillar are going to look pretty darn weird.

I'd like to see how yours ends up looking, even though yours has all the other cage bits.
