Bought the sign at an auction in Hartford CT. I told the guy if we could fit it in the truck I would buy it, drove it home 2.5 hours on I-95, now it turns on when the garage door goes up in my garage.

I brought it in from the uk. I know they made two versions. The a frame only and mine that wrapped around. I imported mine from a dealer in the uk in 2008 when they stopped production. I have never seen another. If you do find one I have not had an issue with it and it shows no signs of rust, age or fading.

I have not been asked once if my 90 was a Jeep after I installed my new decal!

Question on your 90: Handling

How does your 90 handle on the corners? I am asking from lack of experience. I always liked the Rovers and especially the 90s but figured that 110 were a more stable vehicle in the corners especially at speed

Sort of spoiled in that my second truck was a a 1997 Isuzu Rodeo, and this vehicle is amazing in that it corners like a car and effectively has no body role. We bought a 2001 that we shipped over to Sarajevo in 2005, but the 97 with its leaf springs in the rear and probably 4-5" lower handles significantly better. It a remarkable truck in its handling

As I really do like the 90 your insight would be appreciated
