If it were me, I'd fly and install most of those parts before shipping the vehicule over here.... Of course, some large ticket items would still cost money and be hard to source (roll cage). Not sure if Safety Devices still manufactures the same cage but I think not.
Never worked with an RI, but do they let you do some work on the truck or are they just trying to make sure they make the most money possible but forcing you to only use their services? i.e. do they have a control/certification role or can they force you to also have them do all the work?
I could see myself import a truck, canibalize my truck to port the NAS parts to the imported truck, replacing (upgrading) the parts on my truck as needed, certify the new truck by a RI and ending up with one "imported" NAS truck and a "originally NAS" truck.
Anyway, why did Skytop add the comments they added? What do they have to gain?

just means "NAS spec Truck not sold originally in the US" ? Jeeze.....
Does anyone has contacts @ LR to find out how many potential trucks we are talking about? Where were those sold? I'd love to find one, but I'm not going to even start looking if they don't exist. V8s are definitely not that common in Europe, those still there have mostly been dedicated to competitive events and not worth importing for road use! ;-).
