D1/D90 Hybrid... the 'wifes' truck

So, after getting hell from the wife this past year or so about turning my D90 into a D100 truggy....

She say's to me 'can't you use the parts you have left over to build 'my' truck on another frame.....

I reply.... what you want me to build you a D1/D90 hybrid like this, with the 3/4 tilt we have.....



And she says.... yes in black... So, no more of this for me now .... .....

Argh.... I'm gonna blush

So, been looking around at rear ends... the LR type

And spotted this on D44 forum...



With the addition of a pair of my uber cool demountable mud flaps the rear end should look ok.... what do ya think ?

She'd prob like the other one, spent 20yrs working in the UK designing trains, was brought up around heavy trucks too.... she's never seen a bottle of nail polish & rather enjoys blasting clay pigeons with her 12g shotgun.... obviously there is only one option if when we argue

I know... Just not enough $ for all the projects.... Doesn't help that the general contractor we had to build our house was (we found out too late) a drug head & cost us an additional $200k on the build

From this when we parted company with the builder....

100" WB in trimmed D90 Body

Nice Job on the house, i'm in the middle of a gut and refurb right now myself.
I found this thread when I first registered on defendersource as I have a hybrid in the works... a 73 SIII on a 91 RRC chassis... I'm hoping to replace/repair seat box sheetmetal and put a D90 tub on the back with extended wheel-wells... to get what I estimate will be this look...



the previous owner of my rig cut the rear tub off to make a extended/extra cab tray back... however my wife would rather have it assembled into SUV/ soft top configuration since we already have two 3/4 ton GMC's and dont need a trayback. The original Builder (greatdivide on other forums) did a competition-cut 88" tub... looked good like that actually.






Anyways, just throwing out some trimming ideas... if anyone knows the Rollover Rebuild (mightymg) for some wb to tub measurements we'd be in bussiness (thats a ~100" wb in a D90 body)

I like the competition cut too. What's the question - have you contacted Lane?

I have not PM'd Lane yet tho I posted in his rebuild thread on Pirate. The question was regarding his wheelbase: at 102" is that all due to the links in the rear? Or did he customize the front as well? If all in the rear what is his measurement from back of the tub to center or rear axle. I think He accommodated the 9" stretch in the D90 body very nicely. I'll PM him, i know he had it listed for sale for a while.

Not to Hi-jack Landy-Andy's thread or anything! but i suppose its still mostly on topic.

I stretched my D90 out to 100" all in the rear, looking at Lanes with thoses tires he prob did move the front axle forward otherwises he'd be behind the rear x-member. With 35's on mine the back of the tires is prity much flush with the back of the winch tray (which I made same as the old one)

I scanned Lane's build thread. These two posts say he stretched it to 100.5, 2.5 in the front and the rest in the rear.

Thanks for that! now I'll go figure out where I saw the 102". My bulkhead is shifted aft a few inches as well... so this could work out for me.
