FEDS on a crushing spree

Just thought i would give everyone a heads up.On any and all the trucks brought in to USA that are not supposed to be hear or not the proper specs they are looking for them.Guy brought his truck to dealer and they just picked it up 2006 D110 and its off to the crusher.Looks like they are looking for them and who ever owns it will lose it.Be carefull if you have one and i would think twice about buying 1 good luck.

Really? When did they start doing this? Do they just take it and crush it that day?

Did guy bring his truck to dealer for service work to be done and left it at service or did he willingly 'turn it in' to be crushed?

Once you get the AIDS you will want to be crushed in your illegal truck.

if you import an illegal defender from Mexico or Syria, CBP will exempt it and cover the shipping cost to your door.

This temporary exemption expires. 20 Jan, 2017. It may get extended for an additional 4-8 more years.

Who is "they"? What is the basis of your assertion? Is it based on your own first-hand knowledge? Or, is it speculation based on hearsay or observation from a distance?

I just want some clarification as what you've stated doesn't quite fit with the legal reality and its also likely to incite panic among owners of legitimately imported vehicles.

I'd like to try to bring in a "refugee status" 110 this year. It might even be in the gender neutral camp. Thoughts? ;-)
