I always liked the Santana ( IMO it is more comfortable inside than the LR for tall dudes *LOL* )

I tried to edit that and wrote something else. It seems that what I wrote did not erase and my other advise was never placed on the board. What I was telling the gent was that since that truck is not 25 y/o, he would not be able to import it to the US.

Gotcha. Yeah. That 25 yr thing has been beat to death here recently, I just didn't know if Santana was ever actually brought to the US

Well. As with nearly every defender in America I was able to dig up some dirt on the Santana on this site. Questions answered. I can't link to it from my iPhone but the title is "Sanatana in America?!?!"

Same truck is featured in at least three threads on this forum.

Been for sale for years. As I recall

It was some porn exec/actor's truck before it went to RMR.
