If you made it into a single cab then used the bed off the double cab 130 it *might* work but WHY? You'll end up with a massive rear overhang, a Ranger sized ute tray, and seating for 2. If I was in the states I'd have an F250 or similar to do chores in. Do you have any reason not to keep your rangie as it is? IMO hybrids are great when you have two vehicles...one tidy ali series body with a buggered engine and rotten chassis and one rangie/disco with a rotten body but a tidy chassis and nice V8. That way you get an aluminium beast that murders offroad and a nice classic look. One of my favourite conversions is a Defender 90 body onto an unmodified 100" chassis. The wheels are right on the corners so you can practically drive up to a vertical brick wall, hook on the winch, and climb right over it. The ultimate offroader if there ever was one.I've been contemplating converting my Rangie to a HCPU and wondered if the 130 bed wouldn't fit well on the 100" chassis. Too bad you didn't get a picture of that - I would be really interested in seeing a real one.
Glad i left the UK heard all abort that SORN business when i left, here in Ontario its a lot easier they dont care if its V8 or Diesel, coil conversion its all on the basis of the VIN so if its older & has a serial number even better.Hi i just finished my landrover rangerover v8 100" hybrid i thought i could just change the body type on the log book but no i have to take it for a sva test and fill out a form for a new id all i want to do is drive it . all i done was weld on to outriggers to take bulkhead and a series 3 crossmember then cut about 5" off rear tub
