Sweet! I really want to install a sway bar like this on the 110 but find it more difficult to figure out than on a 90 I will figure it out.

So is Buck selling those? If so how much and how do I get one?

Thanks

Won't this hinder the off road articulation like a regular sway bar though? I don't get the difference.. Cool setup though.. I have rear that they help articulation but don't get it..

these torsion bar style sway bars are designed to give maximum flex while still controlling roll on road. I took my high lift and did some drive way wheeling yesterday and fully flexed it out and I got 100 percent rear travel out of the rear...

But i could tell a huge increase driving it around my neighborhood.

Build is looking great with the top on.

Like the look of the sway bars. And if they do like you were saying - give full articulation yet settle the body roll that would be great. I'll hit up Buck with a PM or email.

So i have 2 options for sealing the small crack between my SW roof support and the doors.

Option one, weld a small piece of 1/2 wide 1/8 thick strap on the new bar i built, and use my doors seals

option 2, When i have my drop curtain made it will button on to the bars on each side, I can have the top over lap the bar on the door side about an inch, so when the door closes it touches the material and creates a seal..


Thoughts?

Thanks

Lane...

Is there a reason that you do not want to install the hardtop sides? I am having a hard time understanding why you would want just the roof and not the sides? I assume you will not have passengers in the back due to the fuel tank sitting there?

Have you thought about going with a UK style soft half cab? I know you already have your cage built but if you went with a canvas half cab you would get a bunch of that weight off and it would fit in tight areas better.

Not to mention it would give you a nice weather proof cabin.

They do not require the NAS cage and do not cost too much.

http://www.johncraddock-trim.co.uk/9...od-2611-0.html


If you want to keep a full roof you could always go with a UK spec full softtop

Canvas (not too expensive)
http://www.johncraddock-trim.co.uk/9...as-2584-0.html

Mohair (about 2x as much as the canvas)

These are actually really good ideas, and i had thought about that, It just seemed like it would be pricey to get the ROW roof bars, and the canvas.. I actually would love to have the half cab.

As far as sitting in the back ,I have a seat for back there, but it will only be back there when I have my girl with me, otherwise the seat will be out and the tonneau will be on. plus the aluminum SW top will act as a surrey in the summer.

The drop curtain will only be on when it rains, then in the winter ill run my van sides...

Mohair half cab $375 USD + shipping

Bikini gutter kit / hoop set $266 USD + shipping ( you would need a 2nd hoop for the truck cab but you have skills and could bend on out of conduit or tube)

http://www.johncraddock-trim.co.uk/9...et-2490-0.html

Shipping the hoopset may add to the cost some, maybe keith could stick the hoops in the spare holes in his 90 when he ships it from the UK to save you shipping

FYI, I have a full hoopset and gutter kit here at my house if you want to look at it since you will only be about 10 miles from me next week.

Lane, I have some old series roof sides here. If they have the same front edge as the d90 needs, I'd be happy to cut off whatever portion you need and send to you.

OK more updates.. friday I got the plumbing all finished and cleaned up, I got the new gauges wired, I got my tonneau mounted, and I got my new Yukon grizzly yota locker installed in the rear.. She was driving amazing, I was so stoked to start driving her more.

Then Saturday i went over to fill her up with fuel, and when i got home i noticed there was gas leaking out of the back. Well the cell cracked along the side weld, so the new cell is on its way and will be here Tuesday.

Thursday I'm dropping it off at my buddies shop, and hes gonna shoot the front for me to color match it. HE has a paint booth, so i Don't have to do a garage job on her.

Also i got some patch panels to cover my alpine glass hole. they are the vertical corner pieces on semi truck trailers. The perfect curve for our roofs. Rivet it on and its done.

last week at the swap meet i found a fold up seat for 15 bucks that fits in the back PERFECT!!!!!!!! I have no idea what its out of, but it has the seat belts built in, it folds up.. great for kids...


Ill be out of town the week after next, but after that i should have some good pics...

Oh I didn't recognize it at first. If it's that one, you'd best give it a good wash.
