110 Crew Cab conversion

Ok, so I LOVE the 110 crewcab... just a cool lookin' rig. So here is what I want to do ... find a NAS 90 (something totally trashed... and cheap) and then buy a 110 frame, swap everything over and make it into a 110 crew cab.

Is this something that I should do or not? What is it going to take to accomplish this?

I like them too. If you go this route, North Offroad in the UK sells a kit to convert a D90/110 roof to a double cab. It's not listed on their site (http://www.northoffroad.co.uk), but I'll forward you an email with the details. It is a fiberglass rear piece afaik.

I'd consider doing this with an older D90/110 imported from the UK - seems silly to blow the NAS on it.

Anyone know who's rig this is? Contact info? If I could just buy this one (and then PAINT it... sheesh) that would be easier

I could be wrong but it looks like the one that North Texas Rovers built. And if it is not theirs it looks very smilar.

When asked what the price was if they sold it...was told $80k(this was 4-5 years ago) and that was not firm, meaning price could go up not down....

Yes, the yellow crew cab (doublecab) is mine and I love it. Took some time and money, but is was worth it.

couldn't you just import an older one?? It's something I was recently thinking about.

I think the crewcab version is a relatively recent model.

They started producing them in 2000 but you can find a few pre 2000 110 with this configuration as well.

Yup, a friend of mine had one waaaay back in 1993, 200Tdi factory job!

Trouble is (and not knocking anyone who has or wants one), they're the worst of both worlds.....

can't fit much in the back, certainly nothing "long" that would fit into a normal 110 SW.

once you fit a spare wheel in there (up against the bulkhead) you really lose cargo room.

unless you fit a fiberglass rear roof, or make a metal one, then nothing is safe under the canvas roof section (so you might as well have a full SW)

if you stuff your pets in it, they're "outside"

My cage is a safety devices cage for the crewcab. For my tub, I have a metal lid which swings up and is held by hydraulic arms. I only need to carry two people, so for me it is perfect.
