Difference in frames between Disco/110?

Im assuming there is a difference between the two but how drastic? From looking at the ECR frame swap page and the disco frame I can't eyeball any.

In other words it'd be a bit of fabrication to make a project out of a Disco frame with defender body/custom drivetrain.

Reason I ask is because on Ebay there's a Disco frame with title for $5 and no bids. Figured it might make a good platform for a project that I could still register.

Interesting idea.

I think a lot of the project feasibility (cost control) will depend on whether you can find good donor 110 parts. Otherwise, you're completely building a vehicle from scratch (== big bucks). Good luck.

You can buy complete unregesterable ex-mod 110's in Canada for around $4000CDN Or just buy the bits you need, there are a few ex-mod wreckers up here. I was looking at doing the same thing but I have to finish other projects first.

What does an ex-mod 90 go for? I would love to build a tomcat/offroad 90 to race in the Baja 500, but don't want to spend 20K for a donor vehicle. It is my understanding that if the truck is going to be used for off-road purposes only the DMV will give you a green sticker.

What would you need, a complete running truck or just the shell. Let me know exactly what you're looking for and I can get a more solid quote; but I've seen an un-registerable complete 90 for $4000CDN. I know where a few others can be found in different states including a complete hard top 90 that can be legally registered in Canada for $6500CDN +duty, taxes and inspection fees.

Hmm, this peaks my interest. How would one go about getting a 110 body to NY? I have a gooseneck and truck, could I just go get it and then come across the boarder with it?

Yep, but suddenly everyone wants them.

I know of several trucks. I'm going to make some calls tommorow to confirm who has what and I'll let you know.

Mike,
Do you want to drive one down here for me. (Kansas) I will fly you to Vegas and then home if we can make a good deal. Maybe early spring. Do you still want those mount brackets?

I'll let you know about what I can find, sure I'd drive it down if it's your dime. Yep, I'll take those mounts.

I had some issues with getting to the bank latety but my private assistant (my wife) is back from vacation now and should be mailing you a money order today.

Beside the length the Disco frame is shallower than a Defender so better ground clearance.

Alright, for all of us who highjacked this thread and were interested in ex-mod defenders.

My supplier will supply complete trucks with the engine and transmission seperate, so that you can legally get it into the States as a parts truck for $600US. At the moment all I've found are complete trucks but I'm still looking for shells. I am also trying to get in contact with another supplier.

Mike

Either, he has both, though 90's are harder to find. The 110's would be 3 doors. The years would probably be 85-89, the year is hard to use because the military keeps mixing the parts around anyhow. All the ex-mod trucks up to 1995 are the pretty much the same.They will all be 2.5NA diesel, lt77 5speed and lt230 1.61:1 ratio transfer case. Disc brakes front drums rear with salisbury rear, and heavy duty coils all around. Hard tops are hard to find so if you want one I'd have to do some calling.

Mike

P.S. All these trucks were used by the army and have not had great lives. You can expect 10+ layers of brushed on paint and some dents, but the MOD is great at keeping up the maintenance so the drivelines are in great shape. Most have very little mileage on rebuilt engines and trannies.
