110 Crew Cab Questions

Couple of dumb questions about a conversion.
I assume to mod a 110 SW into a crew cab you need the roof and the back windows section.
My question is whether the roof is the same as a 90 roof?
and whether the Back window portion(to make a 90 a pickup) is the same one used on the 110 crew cab?

I love the look of the Crew cab and as I will need a frame for my 90 eventually, I just thought this might be an option. with a 110 frame and a few extra pieces


Very Bored, i've been hobbled by an achilles tendon injury!

To make a 90 into a 110 crew cab, you need a roof panel (the same as a 130), the back window (same as 90 and 110 pickups), SW rear doors, and a crew cab tub (it has a bulkhead below where the rear window goes). A SW tub can be converted by adding a bulkhead, but the cappings need to be obtained from a 110 DC or there will be a bit of fabrication. I think you could make the capping by hybridizing pickup cappings with SW or 90 cappings. Maybe there is other stuff too. Dunno.

Not board of mine, I just love the crew cab look.
I never should have sold my Tacoma double cab, it wasn't a diesel though.
I'm just bored because I'm laid up.

check the one on our website also, green/white. Love Chris', and drove behind it at the Nat'l some years ago, hence my green one:-)
Sorry to hear about the achiles- ouch.
As my Dad says, a little enthusiasm can get you into a whole lotta work- and in this case, the bed is marginal at best. I would look at one and drive one first if possible.

I have a double cab in the garage that is now getting a frame up restoration. It was converted from a 110 to the double cab configuration. The tub cappings were from a P/U and a 110. The section of the 110 cappings were cut to the new length. I purchased new cappings and will change it a bit. The rear bulkhead was made out of what looks like a P/U? You may still be able to source a rear roof section, spliced in, in the UK. They are getting hard to find but saw one on Eday Uk a month ago.

the rear bulkhead is the same as a series 3 or requires minor modification according to the guys in the Uk.

Very nice Dale, but I only found that one pic on the homepage. That wasn't there when I was there last April was it?
What engine does it have?

I remember seeing a rear bulkhead kit for sale at some point. I think RDS was selling it. It was a New LR part too.. It converted the SW box into the Crew Box..

How about buying a 110 2 door pickup and turning it into a Crew Cab?
Would selling roof and bed from the high cap, net you anything close to what the crew cab bed and roof would cost?
I realize you would need a bunch of other stuff.

Oh man, that would be an expensive conversion - the only thing you can retain is the front end, the bulkhead, and the doors. You need t-pieces, rear doors, a rear tub, a second row floor and footwell piece, the roof, tailgate etc. You might get something for the PU roof and tub (more if its a high-cap I think), but it won't be close to what you spend on new stuff. It would be less than converting a 90, since the chassis is retained, but definitely a lot more than converting a 110 SW to crew-cab config.

That depends whether it is done "Jim good", or "Ron good".

I have been looking for a regular 110 pick up bed since the dawn of time. I have a NAS 110 rear tub I could part ways with if I find one.

I've got one that's filling up my garage! It's in need of a good home.
There's also a 90 similarly in need of a good home a 1985 I think
