Mav, I found the 110 CrewCab Pickup to be pretty useless. the bed is just too short.
Think about the 110 HCPU or the 130 CrewCab. Or 110 HT or 110 Station.

I also knew a guy who stretched the 130 frame to accomodate the longer 110 HCPU - bed to his 130.

I love 'em.

When I had my 88" Series III, top speed about 68 mph on a good day, I quickly found that there was nothing wrong with being slightly slower than everyone else while in a vehicle with no airbag, drum brakes, iffy seatbelts and a softtop.

Driving in 115F (46 C) in a Series III was always fun too!

I miss everything about that vehicle except working on it all the time.

From a Mojave trip in 2002 - not mine - the owner is a photog or a tour operator out of the Las Vegas area I believe.

I gotta say, I'm not sure which one I want...

90 - Cool, super cabable off-road but really not that much space inside:



110 - Much more practical, nearly as capable off-road.. just not quite so cool



110 crew cab could be the best of both worlds... or the worst...



Decisions, decisions

If 2/3 seats are enough for you, I'd strongly recommend a 110 HCPU or a 110 Hardtop. The HCPU has a 2meter bed and 1.5t payload.

I had a 110HT. I loved it.

My favourite video:

As if I needed anything further to fuel my lust for a 130, I came across this today.
Nice people with a great truck.
