Very much looking forward to watching this build Mike, and even more looking forward to seeing it in the flesh... ready for Seven Sisters in September? ;)

so that's why your 110 is up for sale, never seen a double cab Ibex like that before.

I like Ibex vehicles, I just wish their website wasn't stuck in that horrible "Shockwave Flash is the best thing ever" period of the internet.

Current plans are 200tdi/lt77 not sure whether it'll be a disco or def box it depends on prop lengths I have all these so choice was easy. Probably rover front and Salisbury rear on fairly standard suspension as again I have these and this truck will be my daily driver. I'm going to build some sort of box on the back use one one of my dashboards and freelander seats. Colour is not yet confirmed this truck will be IVA'ed and is planned to take about a year to build.

So that's what a double-cab Ibex looks like...

Should be a good project - will watch with interest!

You going to change your forum name MikeTomcat, -> MikeBarge, -> Mike2Ibexes :D

The windscreen hasn't been cut out to full size yet but there is something like 2" box under the aluminum there.

Trust me my misses added strings. Weight wise it's about the same as a fully tricked up truck. As far as I know all the glass is special but it is all flat glass so easy to get.

Mine is actually a mk7 though I believe mk4's never made it into production as to the differences I won't bore you with the details sorry I'll take the anorak off now. I think I've been reading to much.
