I should clarify: I don't know that he imported a Puma or something rebuilt to the specs listed in the first post. For all we know, he settled for a 25 year-old truck and he's planning on doing the work stateside. I can only assume, however, based on his statement that his truck has been seized, that his truck is not 25-year original. I'm looking forward to him answering the question about exactly what he is importing.

I don't normally get in the middle of these but this one seems a bit over the top and hard to swallow.

Correct me if I'm wrong Chris but aren't you in the middle of buying and importing an already refurbished vehicle and then planning on putting a non-epa compliant engine (aka 300TDi) in it? I ask because that's what you seem to have stated in other posts and threads?

Don't get me wrong I fully agree with you about the whole bending the rules and so on issue and I feel sorry for the genuine guys who want to import a truck by the rules and are having issues because a few have and/or are bending or blatantly breaking them and now the authorities have woken up and cracked down across the board. I am just not sure of how you can make statements such as those above while also stating you are or are planning on doing the same or similar things yourself?

Where do you draw the line on legality and getting annoyed then? When it suits you or is it just a matter of degrees?

Or am I missing something?

Can you bring a complete Puma body without the frame or drive train without issues?

Best for the "What's legal" thread.

No moral judgement here. My objection is more pragmatic and it was a grouchy 2AM one at that. The importation of Pumas and similar trucks has created a situation where guys like me can't even change out a hard top for a soft top on a 26-year-old import without fear of seizure. It sucks. What was annoying to me is that it's possible to achieve much of what OP wants and do it quietly, stateside, without contributing to the already-high profile of Defenders at the border. It just costs a little more.

I don't know what's going on here with lone_star_d90 and I'm not saying that he's done anything illegal. I just wonder what he's up to when I see posts like this and statements like "Don't import Land Rovers right now!".

A body fully assembled and in one piece together like that? Yes, it would be smart to read the thread, it's a good read. Yes, you would think it would/should only be considered as "parts". You're not going to RoRo that body onto a ship, it'll be in a container with other "stuff" and I think it really matters what else is in that container.

ECR claims their bodies were being denied importation, but others seem to get them in.

Huh! Interesting.

I'll spend time and read that thread.

Quit reading Cosmopolitan and those other glamour magazines and be happy with your own body. Everyone is so bodydysmorphic these days.

Word of advice do not have anything built in the UK or Europe no matter how much you think you will save. There is a 95% probability it will not get into the USA and you'll loose your money. We as a company no long do any rebuilds in the UK. We do all our refurbishments in the USA with a partner company. That way we can guarentee a vehicle which can be titled in your state.
