Funny you bring that up! I've been working on mine tonight! I think they all need that upgrade. Really cheap to do, if you don't put too much $$ on your time!! 😳 I've done a lot of little, and some big things to our 110 also, but my girlfriend loves it (it's really her car) so that makes the work worthwhile. If you like the size, go for the's been perfect for us so far.

Would you be willing to explain what those differences are?

I believe the NAS 110's where rushed to market on the production line from an engineering and assembly perspective. One example is that from what I understand, they did not paint under the body cappings or sills, hence the rust issues in those areas. ROW trucks are all painted in those areas from what I understand.

Also, clearly the oil cooler lines must not have gone through proper testing, as their location causes the failure and fires.

I would say the 97 got more things right. Having had a 1993, 1995 and 1997, they have all had tub cap issues. Things may have improved by 1997 but still an issue. I think the 97 is a better truck with the engine upgrade, computer and auto tranny. The center console gives the truck a more "finished" look as well. The LE in 97 was no doubt a good looking truck, but the 93 is hard to complain about as well. My biggest complaint about the 93 is the transmission.
