By the way the guy is a scammer and should be reported to craigslist. I saw the ad in the SF bay area craigslist and it was listed that the car was available in south san francisco (were i am) i wanted to take a look at it out of curiosity and the guy gave me some bull**** story and so the car isnt in SSF and now its posted in miami craigslist

He is a scammer but those do exist and have non-turbo 617's.

Here in Canada, our military in Afghanistan recently ditched the German made Iltis vehicles, and now drive the Gelandewagens.


Hopefully there will be some surplus ones available for us up here.

And yesterday, they had one attacked with a rocket-propelled grenade.



Terrible thing, but kinda proud to hear that they DROVE it back to their base.

Think of the new ones as a bank vault with leather and climate control. The S500 for when you need a truck!

I'd love to get my hands on an old G one day. They show up in the states once in awhile.

Damn Jeep thing

I just got back from Costa Rica, I'm importing another FJ40 (Toyota Land Cruiser) NOT A JEEP!

You can import any car/truck that was imported here before. So, they sold the fj40 here in the 70's and early 80's. They met the DOT specs at the time. So I can import the same make/model/series. Same thing with Land Rover Defenders. I have a friend who is a Registard Importer (very hard to get) and he does well bringing in the Defenders from all over the world.

So buy it!

I remember there being a news story about the G-Wagons' floor pans not holding up or something like that. It was a long time ago though probablythe beginning of the Afghanistan invasion.
