I could get by with a Troopie as long as M's vehicle could be the primary. I got in and out of a 2door station wagon growing up, so could Bridger with a Troopie.

As soon as I saw the 70 on the cover I started researching ways to get one in the states. After looking around at EXPO and other sites I realized I will either have to move out of the country or just continue enjoying what I have.

No you just need to supply a fat wallet and find a LHD 15yr old truck to import. Then fix all that is wrong with said 15yr old truck and enjoy.

I understood 25 years to be the US regulation.

15 to be Canadian regulation. No mention of RHD or LHD in the regs.

It has been a few years since I seriously looked into it.
