Not impressed. Why fit only one in a double cab when 3 kegs will fit in a D90 ST?

The ABV in your one keg was probably higher than my 3 put together though, so maybe were tied.

Dude there were 3 kegs - you expect me to remember that party? But probably Coors Lite (CL), Bud Lite (BL), and Yuengling. The sad(der) part is that the gf's family is a part of Genesee.

Light weight - 4 Kegs will fit in a 90... Or 6 sets of doubles (Scuba), 6 deco bottles, 2 scooters and Gear for 2 divers. Or 20 AL80's if your into Tetris.

On the legality issue... once its here and you can legally obtain the upgrades here, and insure it. Your generally good. But disclose to your insurer what you have.

Plenty of upgraded Camaros and stuff running around with engines that aren't exactly what came from the factory. as well as home built cobras and what not, that technically would have the same issues.

for what you want, your going to have to build something... Bring money...

Import a cheap legal UK 110 with a good bulkhead and running gear.
$500 in fasteners / random bits.
Do a frame-up build.

Sadly this doesn't include the cost of rear doors, lift gate etc.

I am still not clear if one can import a truck legally under the rules and then do all the work after (conversion from RHD to LHD, Automatic Transmission, TD5 etc).

What happened to that guy? Didn't he get investigated, or more?
