yeah still used high cap tub.. sorry never had any pics... you would never no its a tipper.. the body sits about inch and half higher than normal... he charged around £600 to do the work with all steel to build sub frame included.. if you got a 2nd hand tipper pump and ram thats all it'd cost... although to be honest you can buy brand new 12v pump off ebay with wanderin lead and good new single actin ram for around 100.. so for less than a grand its tippinj with all new [guaranteed] parts..[which is what i did]. i paid 6000 for 52 plate 110 high cap with 90k on clock.. put good set wider wheels and tyres on it to handle better [£450] paid £100 for ifor top off ebay and sold it 6 months ago for 8 grand.. and people still callin for it occasionaly now.. they all say same.. they like fact its still original lookin..

that sounds ideal , its another reason that i dont want to give up my landy cos i know its good one and would be hard to find another like it , how long roughly would it take to do ?

he'd do it in day... he had mine for 2 but only cos i went down route of usin 2nd hand pump and ram and ram was to long so had to source another... after 3 weeks when i found out how cheap new pump and ram were i replaced both [earlier post i said you'd get ram and pump for £100.. sorry, meant rams 100 and new pump is around 200..] if its a high cap you've got i'd do it in a heart beat.. i bought a 57 plate 90 when i sold mine and i'm thinkin of pxin mine for new or nearly new high cap to do same with...

yours looks lot tidier than my 52 plate did... if you look at bottom of your high cap body.. its sittin level with bottom of your chequer plate... when its a tipper it'l sit level with top of chequer plate.. less than few inch's as you'l see... and suprisingly even with the wheel arches and area where diesel filler pipe is, hardly anything gets stuck in body when tippin.. if the tub was boarded out with all the right angles etc nothing at all would get stuck.. all you'l do is put extra value on your landy by convertin it.. i'l send u a pm with my no..

Me and best mate rechassised his 130 on galv chassis and then converted it to three way tipper hes an ag engnier by trade :) sweet set up as engine driven pump etc was standard dropside body and converted it to toipper on the new chassis

 

my 110 hicap when i rechassis it may well go dropside tipper as its more practiacl if going the tipper route to have dropsides and three way tip :) and im not new to LR or hicaps had the present one since 1998 and deal with many daily :)
