    Wow. If I only I had 100Gs. Any idea where these Cruisers came from originally and how the import process worked? They are identical to many of the 100s I saw in Australia and New Zealand with the exception of Armor. Did any conversions need to be done to meet emissions requirments and or US safety standards. I was told by a company in Florida that importing a Turbo Diesel 100 would run about $8000 just to meet US standards. I can't imagine tax issues, registration fees etc. on top of that. Anyone with more info? I eagerly await the day I will own a turbo diesel Cruiser in the United States. All I need is about $12000 to convert my 80. Donations??? :beer:

    What you are going to do with these things when all the payload is taken by the armor.

    Maybe a bit over the top, but you could go wheeling on army test ranges without fear of getting blown to pork and wee beans :eek:

    $8K sounds about right. I was estimating about $10K for a UN-spec 105 since airbags would have to be added for that; consumer-use 100s all come w/ airbags, I think. In Japan, you can get a 100 series TD w/ rear diff lock for about 4.4 million yen (about $40K USD), so that's still cheaper than a new UZJ100, abeit you won't have an leather. :) Emissions are easy if it's diesel, a small nightmare if gasoline.

    Just wait until the next time the yen hits 146 yen/dollar...that would make a new 100 TD only $31K. I think the closest market to the US that sells 100 TD's in left-hand drive is Costa Rica/Guatemala. Toyota mexico sells the same stuff here, minus the cruiser.

    That armored 105's engine specs indicate it's aspirated 1HZ, so that's like a 150 hp engine pulling 7000+ lbs!
