Finished the clamp on rack sides today. They give me roughly a 4'x6' cargo area up top. All four sides are removable, so I can add a tent, or remove the front and rear to carry my canoe or other long gear.

Also got the Equipe front skid mounted today and rebuilt the clutch master cylinder.

Painted and installed some NAS110 window sides (thanks evilfij!!). They are so much better than my rusted original style sides.

ARBs are installed. This time I tried the Ren Ching compressor mounting location using the AC mount on the 200tdi. It's a perfect location and frees up some space under the seat where I would normally put it.

Not much left to do in the project. I have a new master cylinder coming and that will finish the project in the short term.

Future projects:

1. Complete brake system overhaul
2. Install new middle doors
3. Install 1.4 tcase
4. Install Salisbury rear axle with disc brakes and ARB.
5. Install alpine windows and sun roof.
6. Insulate top and install headliner

And in the way off future, a LHD conversion.

Nice... Have you tried to fill a tire with that ARB compressor? Wondering if its worth the extra $$ for the larger arb comp instead of the small compact one..

I have the HD ARB compressor. It takes about 3 minutes to go from 19psi to 35psi in each tire. I also have a 3 gallon air tank.

Here's a pic of the truck up in Canada wheelin last weekend. The truck performed awesome! I didn't drag the rear end on anything, but did get high-centered a couple times, part of the drawback of wheeling a 110. I plan on building a skid plate bellypan or belly sliders to help.

I did so much wheeling I was unable to get pics of my own truck. I am waiting for the rest of the group to pony up their pics. How's this one?

Here are a few more. All my photos seem to absent of action as that is the only time I had to take pics. I got a few more pics from the group, but the real action shots are still in the hands of the few guys we brought along to actually take the good shots. The swamp photo is what we spent half a day trying to build a bridge to cross, only having to turn back.

Dana (hammertime) has a sweet truck. That's a custom bumper that he mounted the 8274 to. He's not afraid to wheel the truck either. This year his wife brought a stock Disco and that thing kept up with the rest of us - It was amazing.

This is about as close up as I have.

That Series is owned by a guy named John. Poor guy put the truck on it's side within 1/2 an hour of hitting the trail. To top that, he blew the rear main seal and eventually the motor. The truck did the entire trail and finally died a few miles after hitting pavement.

Sounds and looks like an epic trip. I'd love to do one of those long ass tours but the farthest I get is about VT.

Great to see that 110 on the trail after all the build photos. What's the list count at now? I always seem to add a bunch after trips.

I have this side pic of Dana and his rig over a spine @ Rausch. Not sure if it helps or not.

Like Wolf said, Dana has a real nice truck and can drive the hell out of it.

Most winches mount to the bottom of bumpers, but the 8274 is a front mount winch so that limits your mounting options on many common bumpers.

Not sure what you mean. Total cost?
