I did not know that these were produced :shrug: but I am glad I know now. I would like to have one of these! I think it would especially be handy in the northern part of the country with all the snow and cold. Thanks for sharing.

Just don't get confused and start driving down the wrong side of the road :)

Oh boy! Mmmm . . . Shipping it would a couple grand I would think? Thanks for tempting me lol
Might want to look at DeLuke’s first thread on the blue one he imported earlier this year. He detailed what it took and even the cost as I recall. More than a couple, unfortunately.

Still would be a very nice overlander to import.

I like both, but like the red with the bigger tires a little more. As John Wayne said " I wouldn't want to have to live off the difference "

Sure. I don't have any new pics since Christmas. It needs a quick wash as I was caught in a downpour going to the state VIN inspection. However, I have a good list of updates on it though. The best news is that it passed all the customs, safety and VIN inspection and is officially titled in Texas.

-Replaced the Holley carb and manual choke with the standard 2-bbl Carter and electric choke. People might question, but (1) the Holley/choke had major issues getting started and warm; (2) I'm more comfortable working on the Carter; and (3) it's now back to factory which is a theme here.
-An owner before Andrew had replaced the starter switch in the column with a push button held under the dash behind the headlight switch. Definitely weird. Rewired the starter switch into the column so it starts by turning the key.
-Replaced the hood to grill bumpers.
-Replaced the headlight switch and the dash pull knobs.
-Replaced the oil pressure and temperature gauges
-Replaced the power steering pump.
-Installed the Overlander-standard Hella foglights and covers on the front bumper.
-Tweaked the transmission shifter sensor so the reverse lights would come on.
-Replaced the cracked floor shifter cover.
-Factory style gas cap.
-Replaced the 6" fender flares withe OEM-style flares.
-Installed rear bumper end caps which are a close facsimile to the limited bumper end caps. Overlander rear bumpers are the standard black front CJ bumper flipped backward and then with limited end caps.
-Slapped on new "Jeep 4 X" hub decals.
-Replaced the windshield wiper blades with OEM-style.

That's the list so far. I have about half that list in remaining must-do's and then another half again in things to consider.

Impressive progress! Can't wait to see pictures once its done and "back to factory theme" condition.
