How does that happen if you own it and have contracted the shipping to the US?
Shipping contractor was in contact with the seller arranging a quote and he offered a higher price for it. It took me awhile to finally get it out of the seller as to what occurred.

Andrew dropped the Overlander at the Port of Brisbane today. Should be about 3 months to stateside then Dallas. He also swapped on the original white wagon wheels for the trip. Here are the pics from drop off.

Glad to see the original rims on there. Are those new tires, or were you able to get the rims swapped out?

Not sure which is worse, working the long range logistics or waiting for them to be executed.

Andrew had the original rims on roller tires, but they wouldn't hold air. Plus, we couldn't put them in the back for RORO shipping. He mounted the 33" tires that were on it on the original rims. The tires will work fine for shipping. Once it gets here, I will decide on new tires or not. This one has a little lift on it compared to the blue one. I put factory size 235 Goodyear Radials on blue, but will go with a bigger tire for Big Red.
