So it bolts straight to the sill and the roof?

There are no T-posts or B-pillar on a three door or a 90.

Only on a 5-door SW or Double Cab (110 or 130)

Oh no, I get that. I was asking because I have a 3-door and have no reference to look at. Sorry.

I guess my real question is; does a 110 5-door tub come with t-post attached?

It must be because it's welded onto the sill, right?

No - the tub is not part of the T-post, they may be included in a take-off sale but as a component they are separate (RH side T-post, LH side T-post, rear tub, and the two small triangle pieces that cover the t-post to tub area below and behind the middle row doors)

If you actually have rust and corrosion free middle split doors, those are worth big bucks. I have never seen a set that was truly rust free. Tons of people with early 110s will want those to replace their rusty ones. The middle door tops are NLA anywhere.

The front doors are nearly the same as a NAS 90 front door, so those aren't a big deal really.

Yup. We ordered new T posts from Rovers North and installed them. The ones on the truck when I bought it were painted garbage.

Here is a link to the truck when it was listed here FOR SALE. The ad talks about what was done to the truck before shipping to me. You can see the doors installed on the truck. Since the truck has been in pieces in my local shop since it got here the doors are still as new.

The doors look more straight on the pics in the ad from what I can see.

I thought the same thing.

Because they were.

The truck has been completely disassembled since I took possession in the U.S. I just picked it up on Tuesday from my restoration shop. The body alignment needs attention. It's not finished yet. Just doing test runs.

Since the body and doors need alignment I figure I might as well order the doors I really want and do it right the first time.

Oh wow, you bought that truck 1 1/2 years ago and you're totally taking it apart? The truck is awesome.

Why did you take truck apart? Wasn't it just apart before buying?

Low supply low demand for the middle doors, most people I meet want rolley Windows, so it's pretty much just series guys and the early 110 guys you can sell to at that point.

Yes, it was apart before I bought it.

I will be doing an entire new post with pics and everything about finding a ROW 110 on Defendersource, buying it sight unseen from Europe and importing it.

And the 110 "beach-runner" folks who want the two-piece doors (i.e. ECR clients and others doing similar builds).

So the future lies in 2-piece middle doors?

This has been an interestin thread regarding body alignment.

I'll assume its much different/less complicated for 90's?
