Great Pics Jim. Please post more. I love seeing purposed-built battle-scarred Defenders. Thinking of removing my ripped up seats and putting my beach chair in there. Couldn't be any worse than what it is now.

Here is a test shot. We have a few of the up armored D110's around here. We also have a LR grave yard. It is a sad place where old trucks go to be parted out. I will load those later. Thanks Guys

Found out that purchasing a 40' foot container will cost about 5grand cause of the uptick in demand for them over there for various alternative uses.

Yeah, containers are used for everything over here too. And a goodly percentage of containers going in and out of Afghanistan get looted somewhere along the way. I wouldn't ship anything out of here via anything but MPS (military postal service).

True, if this was a couple of years ago they would only be 2000$ or so. Like i said before all you need is the right paperwork and signatures.

I have a model of a Carabinieri D110 that I got in Italy last summer. Found it in a gas station for 16 euros on the way to the Amalfi Coast...

Here are some pictures of about 30 2008 D110 ST here in Auburn at MDT armoring, currently they have quite a few 2010 D110 and bins full of parts in the back. Here is an after shot and some trucks from my travels...

Im not sure, they get a shipment of brand new 110's (plastic on the seats and everything) every so often, but there are literally dumpsters in the back with take offs. Its been a couple months since Ive been by there, so Im not sure what they have, I don't think they throw away the parts, but I dont know what they do with them.

Sorry. In all honesty, Greece and the Greek Isles have some of the cleanest series trucks I've seen, and you see more on a day to day basis than you ever do in the states.
