Yup, real plate, it's over 25 years old. No safety or emissions inspections either!

Does Frank drive like poo? I find my 93 110 to be garbage compared to the 90

Shouldn't feel that way, should be the opposite. My NAS 90 SW with 36k beat me to death. 3 hrs was about as long as I could stay behind the wheel on a road trip (plus thats about how long it would go on a tank of fuel). My 110 on the other hand was comfortable for 6hrs straight with no stops. Both trucks had 33's. Wheelbase makes a huge difference in ride quality.

Hmm, it's all relative. I can't speak for my 110, as the 360 miles I drove in it was with 35s and non-adjustable series front seats. But the ride was not too bad. I loved the way the 90 handled and drove, but I never drove it farther than 80 miles. I trailered it any distance longer than that just because I could. So in essence, I am not qualified to comment on distance driving in either!

I should correct my statement
90 - much faster and better brakes.

Update #2

Finished gutting the interior and got it lined with Herculiner. Love it or hate it, I love the stuff and this in my 5th truck I've used it on, all with good results. I still have one more coat to go.

The other thing I tackled was cutting off the LT77 shifter and welding on a better bend so that it doesn't come up through the center of the seat box. This is a great reference photo on why not to install a Disco tranny!

Update #3

Got the SD cage installed over the past few days. What a kick in the balls. The instructions for the kit SUCK! 4 pages with a few photos for a kit that contains literally 30 pieces and 300 pieces of hardware of all shapes and sizes. The installation leaves a lot to the imagination.

Also bolted up the sliders, but I still need to add some tubes to the outside like the SG sliders.

That looks great... Much less Gay! Not that there is anything wrong with that!

Does it come with a ladder or the tabs to install a NAS basket?

As soon as I can shovel an opening in my driveway I'll drag it out to take better pics.

The cage is an NAS110 cage, so it has the tabs for the ladder and basket. I'll end up designing a new basket for it though.

Next up is finishing the interior and installing the stereo, console, and speaker boxes.

I've been making what seems like little progress. I got all the interior back in, front seats recovered, speaker and storage boxes installed, stereo in, new shocks and extended brake lines, steering stabilizer, hooked up the off road lights, and got the Equipe bumper installed. I still need to take off the bumper when I do the timing belt, so I am holding off installing the winch.

Still have tons of little things to do!
