Didn't the Tithonus refresh include a 300TDi? Or was that only on certain trucks?

Edit - Nope, guess it didn't. Thought I had read it somewhere but must have been mistaken.

Tithonus was kidnapped by Eos to be her lover.

Thanks all for the congrats!! Its been a long time since I had a rover. I am looking forward to being an owner again and getting it to my front door. Please wish me luck on a smooth import.
I will be looking for a GOOD 200 tdi in the future so please let me know of any available.

My problem wasnt passing, it was making right turns and not being able to see what's coming.

Congrats, nice rig. The Tithonus trucks come with the acoustic floormat setup that RN sells for $800 and you'll get some real seats with it as well. All you need is a 200tdi and then swap out that 1.6 case for a 1.4 or a 1.2 and it will be super nice!

bill probably knows better than me, but I believe it's pronounced "Ti" (as in Tri) "Thow" (as in Throw) "Nus" (as in Bonus),

Please keep us updated on your import process and how it went with Withams. I'm always tempted by that stuff and I'd like to hear a success story!

Well the funds have been sent and received. The truck will be sent to port to catch the boat on the 13th and it should arrive at the US port around the 26th. Should be able to pick it up around the 2nd of April if all goes well. I feel that all will go well as I am having Doug handle the import.

Doug
Let me be clear, I wasn't worried about the truck clearing, but at a 3 week count down until I get married I really need to be able to check things off of my list and this was a big one!! Thanks for your hard work and I owe you an air boat ride when you make it down this way!!
