Subscribed! Actually, I've chatted with Ryan and can confirm this IS his plan.

Not taking away anything from the OP, I am tempted to make a plastic top tithonus into a camper. Can't quite stand up but with a little redneck engineering flip up beds and a galley on the back door could easily and economically be completed.

Dave, what kind of redneck engineering you thinking for the flip up beds? I've been trying to come up with something for my truck.

Would sure be interested to hear any suggestions on fitting tree sliders on a MOD 110. Cutting the locker door bottoms off at 1/4" above slider seems to be my best solution. Surely we wouldn't want to cut on the steel slider to accommodate the flimsy door? I'm going to have to do something with those lockers/doors...maybe I'll grow to love them but from here all I see is headache. thanks.

Hinge them on the side so they flip up against the side walls. Flip them down and have a brace or legs supporting them in the middle, between the wheel wells.
Kind of like this but no side frame:

For the sliders I saw one rebuild where the mounts for the sliders to the frame were slightly changed so that the rear was a small amount lower than the front. That gave it enough clearance for the side locker.
Here's the link to the page:http://www.landyrebuild.com/tree-sli....ItoyMEGA.dpbs
Picture is the final result

brilliant! I like it and I could possibly further my goal of making them more functional. I know one side I am going to soundproof and put a 1K honda propane generator in and the other is either getting a compressor or a propane tank cage and steel surround(if at all legal and not the dumbest thing a newb ever thought of...putting a propane tank in that locker that is)

truly appreciate it guys. Both great solutions I hadn't thought of. As far as mounting the slider a bit cockeyed, I just couldn't do it but it does raise the question of just lowering the whole slider to below the locker door and welding in something if the gap was an issue.

You might want to wait on the sliders as Safari HP is working on sliders that will fit ex mod trucks with lockers.

Thanks but I need to make sure the record is very clear....


From Jan of 1983 to about April of 1983 I was actually cool. I had my window of cool during that period as I had purchased a motorcycle jacket just after Christmas. Along towards the end of April I started to lose my tenuous grasp on cool and it has all been downhill since then.
