The ARB was a worthwile investment, I had one on my old truck and it was well worth it. Hit a young doe at about 60 mph with no noticeable damage. (she went under the truck) saved me a lot of headaches and some serious repairs both then and in an earlier accident as well. I'd recommend one to anyone.

Not my rig, but I didn't want to start a new thread (honestly, not sure where it would belong).

We Crossfit at work (FD), and while checkin the site the other day we saw this photo.

Caption said "Swedish Armed Forces, Afghanistan."
We are all curious what the truck is (bunch of gearheads, no former mil guys), I figured someone here would know.

Thanks in advance.

I know a bunch of guys who do desert excursions out here, and they LOVE these things. They are like gold.

2002 Sequoia v8 4wd. 4 inch lift and 34s. ARB bumper and bull bar, kc lights and some after market roof rack that turned out to be amazing. I forget who makes the steps. The vehicle is perfect for car camping and we have a set of stanley rolling tool boxes that fit on the roof/back of the truck.
SSG MILLER,
That Landrover looks homesick. I will give you my UK address and you can send it over, I will ensure it is reintegrated with its own kind (after cosmetic surgery to correct the horrible internal deformity it has suffered) and eventually release it back into its natural habitat. Deal?

Hey dude, how about not re-quoting all the pictures if all your going to do is make comments like this. Just delete the [image] text so that they don't show up again.

There are people that access this site where bandwith is at a premium and they don't need eight copies of the same picture to load.

Thanks,

Can you get it back to the US? That's sweet.

I thought pretty hard about getting one when I was in Germany, but I never looked into it. If I go back, I am all over it. That is a sweet looking 110. Now that they are old enough to be in the historic vehicle category, can you get it back to the states? If you don't mind me asking, how much do 110's run over there?

Nice! A while back, there was an Expando-Van on E-Bay -- I was SO tempted! Settled for a former FEMA vehicle, a commercial Ford chassis - I didn't know how much luck I would have in finding parts and service for the old 5-ton chassis.

Parts are plentiful, and reasonably priced. M809 series trucks had a long run, so there are a lot of them out there, not to mention the Cummins NHC-250 engine was made for even longer, so engine parts are very easy to come by.

It's going to need a new hood, but not much else.

So, you going to drive that up next time we meet? I'd like an up close look.

When you say internal defect, I hope you don't intend to ruin it with a conversion to wrong side drive....

If you mean a TDi conversion, then I like the way think.

Coolness.

Thanks!

Same here.

Unfortunately, Jeep has their head in their collective ass right now. Why they've resisted introducing Jeeps in the US with the newer high-torque, high efficiency, light-duty diesels is beyond me...they must not focus-group well with soccer moms and whatever BS target demo they're going for these days.

I'm not 100% sure but I believe it's a combination of emissions issues and buyer perception. Americans tend to think of diesel engines as big, loud, and smelly like semi trucks.

In addition, I believe non commercial and "farm" applications (i.e. 3/4-ton and 1-ton trucks) are held to a different standard than passenger vehicle diesels and obtaining the certifications that these standards are met are proibitively expensive compared to the projected sales for the vehicles.
