THis thread is so far off its original topic and jumped-the-shark about 6 pages ago when I started seeing SBC/Jegs crate motor comparisons, so now I'm just seeing what it takes to move it to "the Pit".
Hope everyone knows I'm just f-ing around trying to stir some laughs and be politically incorrect.

That's too funny. No doubt he got a chuckle. Time will heal. In fact I might have a line on one he'd like. I plan to give him first licks at the f&f rate if he does.

On a more serious note. When I was talking to Customs today about the 110 sitting in Baltimore the agent lightened up a bit. I said, so I hear you guys have been busy, and he said yeah you would never believe it. Then he said be thankful you only have this one to deal with. I said yeah one at a time is enough. He laughed and asked if it was 5:00 where I was at. I said, Hey thats why i don't where a watch. That way its 5:00 whenever possible. We laughed and he told me to have a good weekend. Sounded to me like they guy was a little weathered. I've never had a Customs agent act human before. Always like a state trooper after pulling me over doing 100 in a 55.

I spoke with various customs agents at various ports about my import. I told them what I was importing and asked if they thought it would be a problem. Their responses were all pretty much the same: if you're bringing in a 25+ year old truck and it looks like it's a 25 year old truck and nothing major has been changed on it, you're not going to have any problems at all.

I don't know what kind of trucks were involved in the current crisis but I'm pretty sure that it wasn't mid-80s ex-MODs fresh off active duty.

How do they tell if the modification was done prior to import or after?

The burden of proof would be on DHS. Who is to say that modifications were not made after they were imported and before they were sold? As of this moment in this country, you are still innocent until proven guilty unless I missed one of Obama's many new executive orders.

but any truck with a 300tdi or td5 in it is basically illegal (and that's in writing from the EPA), all ICE has to do is pull the serial number off the motor to identify it. As for the frame, you'd need a receipt, just as if you restored a salvaged title truck. Are you gonna get pulled over and have it seized, probably not, could you have issues on import, that has yet to be seen...


very muddy water here...

Willing to bet that they also seized all the paperwork Aaron has on vehicles and parts sold including descriptions, computers with all files pictures and descriptions.
So anyone with an Aaron Sourced truck or parts should be prepared for agents to knock on the door with search warrants in hand.

Hoping I'm wrong but know when they find a thread they follow it

Good point Josh and thanks for pointing it out (I didn't think about it that way). I just edited my post.

Thx

What happens if you can't provide them in that hypothetical situation I have no idea.
I would think a lot of people would have done the work themselves and therefore would not have a receipt. Also, trades are very popular in the Land Rover community, so who is to say you did trade your 4.6L for a 300 tdi?

Good point, but the problem is the 300tdi...

So next year the 200Tdi engine turns 25 according to Wikipedia. Is that when it actually becomes legal to use on the road here in the US?
