Double cab questions

Might not be the best place to ask this since most of us are based in the US but I figure there are a few people here that might be able to answer the following questions.

1. What is the difference between the roof section from a 110 double cab and a 130 double cab. They look similar to me but I have read that they are different and one from a 130 will not fit a 110.

2. What are the inside dimension of a 110 double cab cargo area LxWx D with the rear tailgate up and down?

Thanks

D110 and D130 dbl-cab roofs are identical.
The roof panel is formed by grafting a regular hardtop onto the rear curved portion of a truck-cab roof. They command stupid money in the UK secondhand (especially with a good headlining intact) so god only knows what you guys would have to pay for one in the US.
The rear window panel is a regular truck-cab panel. It's the lower cab wall that's different.

Haven't got the 110-dbl-cab loadspace dimensions to hand. Depth and width are the same as the D90 but front to back they're considerably shorter than a D90.

I guess you know that RDS has the bulkhead conversion panels?

the piece that goes behind the second row of seats. So if you have a 110 station wagon tub, you add the bulkhead panel, the window panel, the roof, and you're done.

Looks like this:

And the 130 rear cab panel looks like this http://www.equicar.co.uk/images/Spec...frearbulka.jpg

The conversion panel/s is actually a genuine part. LR uses the loadspace dividing panel from a Euro-Spec 90SW.

Yeah, long term, I feel like I'm going to end up with one of each type. I can't really go more than 2-3 years without building a Rover. I guess I need to buy a ranch.

Thanks for the info everyone.

And thanks for the pics Jim, they will help me get a better idea of the cargo area next time I see a 110 in person.

Not sure if a double cab will work, might need to loo at a Hi-cap pickup but sure would like the additional cab space of a double cab

I asked George at RDS about doing this this past summer, and he said it wasn't possible, and now there is a double cab bulkhead kit....? Then he went on to tell me i'd have to buy a whole new tub. wtf. This thing would make things infinitely easier/ cheaper.

I started with a 110 tub and tried to use the bulkhead "kit". Really you need to do a lot to get it to work. Wish it just dropped in, but it didn't and some fabricating was required.

After I get back from the shop, I'll measure whatever you want BTW - what measurements are you still needing?

Truck looks great Chris.. that is what I need to build next for sure. Would want a 300 tdi though.. I would like to look of an 83 or 84 110 eventually to start with. Too bad some people are asking some astronomical prices for junker 83's already.. I think it would be cheaper to fly to the UK for the weekend to buy one direct and get a few Beers while your there..

I took your pic and added red lines where I would like to know the distance.

Thanks

So, do you have to remove / modify the existing body cappings? Does the 'kit' come with all the new cappings needed? Is the 'factory' double-cab not fitted with galvanised cappings as standard (i thought all the 'pickups' were)?

Are the standard cappings at the rear simply drilled to take the pins for holding up the tailgate?

Side to side inside capping: 56 7/8"

Back of rear bulkhead to rear: 43 3/4"

Tailgate width: 35 7/8"

Height from capping to tailgate bottom: 20"

Also of note, the capping on the rear bulkhead iextends 7/8" beyond the cab.

The cappings were mixed and matched and welded to do the job, the kit did not include them. In UK, thay may be galvanized, but I've never seen a double cab in person except the one I built. This is one of those projects where you do a lot of test fittings until you get it right. The rear bulkhead needs to be under the cab, so it's location is dependent on the cab. Rear door fit (i.e. gap) also depends on the cab top and sides. I will post additional photos if you tell me what you want.

In back, I use a NAS style swing tailgate and spare tire carrier.
