JimC,

I gave you a box of them for yeastie. It went in the back of the yellow truck. What you are remembering is that you owe me a set of the steelie lugnuts we were supposed to swap out :-)

Let me look under the bed. I think I have a set that is about 18 or so I can part with some from that.

Be in touch tomorrow.

Damn that makes me want to go that route... holding back the desire though!

Quick question for you Mark - if you drew a line across the B pillar at the height of the "ears", what the length from that to the top of the roll bar on that?

Also, does anyone know if an old school hoop set stand the same height as the nas cage or are they appreciably different?

thanks
charles

Charles, I Cant Really Give You An Exact Measurement. I Didn't Use The Ears In This Application. The Ears Are Acutally Now Under The New Bar Mounting Plate. It Is Pretty Close In Relation To The Factory C-pillar Height.

That Sounds Good Ron. Let Me Know. 6 Is What I Need.

Thanks Mark. I'll just measure the C pillar height on my D90 then. Even though I don't have a cage, I want to make my single hoop the appropriate height.

thanks

Still have to do something about the gap between the fender and inner fender if you do that. The flare ties it all together

Mark,

Looks like at least a 2 inch lift. What did you use ? Spacers or springs ?

Mark, that looks really nice. Other than a full top and lugs, what else is there to do?

In looking at the photos I assume you built this to be a surrey/bikini top only??

The placement of the roll bar by the rear door won't leave you any room for a seal or gutter kit.
Just trying to get my head around it.

ade, the only other thing i really need besides what you mentioned is a tune-up and fluids.

doug, i bought the 110 from gavin just how it is. it has new bilsteins and new lr springs. no spacers.

mike(fidel), it's strickly just a summer truck for me. i'll run the bikini until september then park it.

i want to go automatic but i am going to wait until next year.
