How?

Seriously, how is this even possible that this is in the United States?

What do you mean? Appears to be misspelled, looks like an 84?


Seriously though, "grey market, can be titled in US but will cost more"

It is people like that, that make importing legal trucks such a pain.

Did anyone scroll all the way to the bottom of the pictures and see the note which says that it does not meet US emissions or safety standards and should be used as an off road vehicle only...?? Yet they say they can get it titled in Ohio..??

The fleet of black Tahoes and Suburbans in the background gives the impression that it's a place that armors trucks, but it definitely doesn't look like MDT's facility. They're based out of Birmingham, unless they opened a new operation in Atlanta.

Well I don"t know for certain because I've never done that...I have had several guys over the last three years tell me they have LR's as ranch vehicles and are registered and insured as such. Who knows, as they may not have been the "property" holder/vehicle owner(s).

Seems like a common thing around these parts so...

Possibly the government that ordered them cancelled the contract. Either way this vehicle needs to leave the country to survive.
Anyone have a Caribbean Island we can use?
