yes but if i get pulled over with them in and passengers using them i will get a ticket on about $18000 and possible jail time also the registration fee over again which is about $2700
they are crazy about this

a gentelman last fall drove his Range Rover Sport which was registred without back seats he put them in to take his famliy on holiday in france he got caught he got 15 days in jail

Alot of laws and fees on vehicle here is crazy, we complain alot here but when we stop for a sec and think about it we have it better then alot of other countrys, i love my country but i would like to move over to the states someday

Re: 84 Crew Cab Rebuild

Hey Thomas, if(when?) you hand grenade the 6.2, I know youve got a motor planned for it, but you should really look @ a 4-53T or 4-71 2 stroke Detroit Diesel, those things run 4 ev er and sound absolutely Beastly, and make around 400+ on the TQ Meter, dunno about the HP Number tho.

I agree. If you keep the boost below 10 psi and keep the EGT's below 1000 degrees the 6.2 will live a long healthy life. The twin turbo set-up actually helps to keep the EGT's down because it eliminates a lot of the restriction that a single turbo presents. I have had 2 and I am about to have a 3rd 6.2 with turbo set-up and they have been great. These engines got a bad rep because of terrible glow plug systems and lot of the botten end failures are due to people spraying too much ether in them to crank them due to glow plug system. It would have been a good idea to put a stud girdle in it while it was out as insurance.

I don't know of anyone who makes a patch panel for there, but you can simply hand form a new piece.

Tonight mine pulled a few cars out of snowbanks, and is sitting in my driveway, icicles on the grille, wheels just white cakes of snow, buried up to the lug nuts in powder, straps and chains wrapped around the bumpers, the outline of the wipers clear in 4 inches of snow on the windshield... A tired warrior of the 1980s in a world of low profile tires, front wheel drive, and plastic bumpers, where people stay in their houses until snowplows move the offending substance from their paths, too helpless to travel without AAA and chains and salt, clearing their windows with longhandled brushes while gently stepping around in the snow trying to stay nice and dry.
