    I have someone nearby that if there were enough of us he could have it shipped to him and then bulk shipped to Boston. I would expect shipping to be pretty pricey. Just a thought.

                      I am seriously considering getting one of these to put my 5 door tub/seats etc. on and then selling the remnants as a project vehicle. Reaching out to the auction site and brokers in Australia. If anyone has done this before some references would be great. For RORO service you cant have loose items floating about. That would require a container and labor costs to strap it all down. I might have a coworker get a couple turbos for that engine for me somehow.

                      note the bid from wenham ma. exploring export options now...

                      EDIT: The other option is to get a designa chasiss hybrid for coil axles and crossmembers to allow the LT77 properly. 3.54 diffs and a 200 TDI sans intercooler is the other direction I might go in.

                      EDIT3: I have an R380 with a long input from a D90 that would be used to replace the LT95 as my prospects of finding an LT95 overdrive are slim to none. Wiseowl doesnt make an LT95 variant right?

                        Wht would you bother with that, half the advantage of the Aussie trucks is that they come with a real truck diesel, the 3.9l Isuzu 4bd1( http://www.4btswaps.com/forum/showth...T-Introduction ) not a Mickey Mouse Rover diesel. The other advantage is the near bulletproof LT95 and Galvy chassis.

                        An LT77, R380, 200tdi are all major downgrades, not even in the same league.

                        Want to rebuild the Isuzu?

                        https://www.ebay.com/i/222600682145?...D1469399575195

                        contrast that to the Rover parts and cylinder machining.

                        LT95 overdrives are out there if you really need them.

                          Well I would keep the isuzu engine. Just need a fifth gear for the lt95. Not having a Fairey OD, I do have an r380 sitting around that would give me just that. I need highway speeds as this would be a daily driver.

                            You could also look for a whole 5door in Australia, they were sold commercially. Im not sure if they had all the upgrades the Military ones did.

                              As long as I could source a non mucked with 110 5 door that would be an option but I did not see any. With all the defender import shenanigans I felt that the military straight off the base with full paperwork would sail through customs whereas anything that looked slightly out of sorts could be a nightmare. I did get a quote of 2200 to new york and that 'personal belongings' could be in the vehicle. Sourcing a 110 tub would allow me to leave the series 3 intact for the most part. The perenties are galvanized miliitary chassis to boot and I believe the LT95 has a .995 ratio tcase. Time to head to terrianns site and do some figuring....
