So you have Thanksgiving, grilling a maple brine turkey up for the family and parents with time on your hands.

You take this bumper,





This brush guard



Add a saws-all, a 4 inch angle grinder with grinding disc and cutting disc...

You end up with this.....



I know sorry about the crappy cell phone picture but it was the best I could do while getting gas on my way to pick up some Sam Adams to drink while watching Christmas Vacation. I have a little more work to do on the middle cross support to make some more room for the winch. Then mount up the off road lights.


Oh and I know I need to wash the 110...

Hey Army, just noticed this thread. Congratulations on the 110. looks like a good'un.

It's strange. When I was a lad, growing up in the UK, folks used to buy utility Land Rovers and look forward to the day they could afford a Range Rover. Seems the opposite is true this side of the pond.

Very few vehicles as practical and universally loved as a old 110 Landy.

Enjoy.

That's no joke I started out in Land Rovers with a Range Rover Classic and feel this was a move up lol. I dreamed about the day I could afford a 110.

I love the utilitarian 110. Anything that breaks can be easily repaired. Nothing is that complicated. It's like the erector set, of the car world. If you have some minor fab skills you can pull off about anything with it. Hopefully in the next few weeks it will have a new interior and a auxiliary heater. Need to adjust the doors so they seal up a bit better and do an alignment to get things squared away

So far since I bought it I have put almost 3k miles on it, between driving it home, visiting family and daily driving duties.

Guard looks good. Are you doing anything with the wheels?

The extended area can be catered for by not putting the plastic centres on the alloys. Like I can't with the maxi-drive axles. But I think you will find the main issue is that the actual drive flange is a slightly large diameter than the Rangies and Discos, so some of the alloys will not fit. I think you can fit Disco steel rims if you file out the centre hole slightly.

I also just realised how rare your vehicle is. The 110 with the sliding windows was only made for 12 months and then they went wind up windows and one piece doors.

PT was saying the same thing on the alloy's that some might clear it. I might do a bit of test fitting to see what works as I have some RRC 3 spokes laying around.

Didn't realize that was rare, I dig the slider windows. It adds to the quirkiness of the 110. Looks like the motor swap is moving up on the list. The 3.5 seems a bit tired.

That and sorting out the interior door handles, both my front ones seem to have decided to stop opening the doors lol.

See if you still like them on a warm day and all you want is some air in the car as every bit of metal on the firewall and floor get too hot to touch.

lol you may have a point but at least the bulkhead vents work well. I think the 3.5 breathed her last breath today though. Misfiring bad, showing signs of extreme blow by so the motor hunt has moved up on the list.

But you need to be doing at least 50mph to get a decent breeze through those vents. That means at least you will be cool going down hill with a tail wind.

Well the 3.5 is dead, I'm swapping in a RRC 3.9 here in the next few weeks. She has 45 pounds compression in one cylinder and another that is just a little better.

I'm ordering up a crower cam 50229 lifters new timing set etc to freshen the 3.9 a bit before it goes in. Will also be putting a new radiator in there at the same time.

I wish I could go diesel but my disposable cash was burned buying the 110 Unless someone has the marks 4wd adapters laying around for real cheap, if I had those I would be going 6.2 diesel for sure.
