I have to say I think its growing on me - we got there friday night and it was windy so we rolled out our sleeping bags in the back of the truck and slept well - could not have done that in the 90

I think the long drive built some confidence in the truck and with the cooling sorted I think we can safely check that off the list

I am going to be adding a pile of parts I have in my garage this weekend

Still trying to decide what suspension to go with as I think thats the next change that will need to be made

I've got 90 rear springs on the front & 130 outer rear springs on the rear. Gives +1" lift, no issues with steering geometry. No scary body roll on corners. It's apparently 1 ton spec. I'm really pleased with the set-up.

Truck looks good Jay,
FWIW, my current 110 has HD springs on both front/rear (don't know the brand, but they're powder-coated yellow, so maybe Pro Comp?) with double shocks in the rear.

The double shocks take care of a lot of sway on the highway and the stiff springs really make up for the fact we have no sway bays (it actually handles much tighter on the roads - I realize that sounds silly for a 110, but it really does) - However, unless you're traveling with a load most of the times, the HD suspension is pretty tough on your back on long trips. Just saying, there are pros-n-cons to both.

I always found that your 110 soaked up the off-road terrain nicely, but was a little "tippy" on the highway. Partly because of the spinaker you have mounted on your roof, but also because no sway bays.

Anyway, glad to see it rolling in the desert and keep the pictures coming.

That's what St Johns had on my Ambulance, along with OEM rubber bushings, it handles great, and is very comfortable driving. It absorbs impacts great, and doesn't ever feel harsh. I just ordered a new set, but also having the rear inner helper sping, and a dual rear shock in the Vee configuration to handle the extra weight of the camper conversion. not a bad choice if you don't need extra lift.

cant say much about the ride as I just went home from the shop and they seem firm but not to harsh still some amount of body roll but leveling the ride was my first goal

What size tires are you running? And that is 2inches of lift? I've got 2inch ome springs waiting but not sure about bigger than 7.50s on tires.

New Door latches and door cards with repair

So in an effort to get a stereo in the 110 I replaced the door latches with newer style ones (roversdownsouth) and got a set of nas door cards (roverdude) and repairs all the cracks reinforced the mounting holes and installed the speakers - I removed all the old linkage for the old handles. I got he stereo in the mudd uk pod along with some switches to run some aux lighting when I get around to it

I got the rear ladder mounted along wit some fuel and water cans

got my t-case looked at and it was just linkage so thats the good news

You were spotted over on Expedition Portal. I hadn't seen your new camper before so didn't recognize it at first.
