I second the "sell both", get a legal bulkhead, fabricate a NICE Bowler-like 4 door skinned D110, get a nice LT1, Dana 60s, Coil overs...42s, high clearance fenders, 2" lift...

I feel like grunting like Tim the Tool Man Taylor (was up all night yesterday because of the time change and was watching repeats...so f-off )

I have an fj40 on 40's i can only imagine how insane a 110 would look up on them... with the 42's you'd probably want rockwell's and a cummins 610

I'd buy another D-90 and burn all three. Is that a good suggestion?

convert the red one so that I don't have to break all those rusty bolts off during disassembly while trying to graft the rear cross member on.

smart money says you will be back.

Since many have now suggested that the 110 get serious beef, I've already got that setup with the 90 this would be more expedition/camping based so stock or close to it is my goal.

Build the red one. Like stated above, you will only use the front clip and most of the running gear exept the rear axle... I would also Galv. a bulkhead if you want to keep it. A new one is only about $400 and well worth it in the long run.. The rest of the body will need to be bought anyway. You will make money on the green one and on any of the parts like some of the cage stuff and rear tub off of the old one for sure.

I got mine from Rovers Down South. According to George you can't get a new NAS 110 one, but you can modify a 90 bulkhead to fit and either purchase and install the vent flaps (which I am doing) or weld patches in before painting (which I would have done if I had thought about it and told the body shop to do). Anyway, if you give him a call I'm sure you'll be happy. He gave me a great deal on all the stuff I bought from him. Also, his shipping was great!
