2005 d90...

How is this imported if the customs are so strict?

Based on the dash I would say it is a pre 2002 model.

Just because customs has rules doesn't mean there aren't a ton of trucks like this here.

I love how it's titled in WA state. They know getting that official in California is going to be a total PITA.

Since it's local, if anyone is serious about it I can go take a look for you. But the price seems a little off the charts.

Wonder what year it was imported as. I would suspect that 2005 is just a rebuild date, not a factory vin date. Dash is indeed pre 2002.

The dash is NOT A 2005. However, the truck looks good. I would not trust the owner. If he's not honest with the posting, how could you trust him with anything else.

I know it seems like a small detail, but I wouldn't trust the cropping on all of the photos. Those were definitely altered from the original aspect ratio. Small detail, but seems like an attempt to hide something. -- I emailed the guy and will take a look at it if gets back to me.

The owner replied to my email: "It is registered as a 1981 land rover, but California will not allow it to be registered in the state."

Rebuild was probably done in 2005 using 1999 parts.
