Sounds like a cool idea! Your right about the price of trucks in central america! Its rediculous, but still I cant believe all the beautiful trucks on the road down there, where does the money to buy these rigs come from?
I feel bad for you boys south of the border looking at the diesel toys. Going about the swap seems to be expensive and time consuming. If its 15 yrs or older and can comply with cdn standards your ok to import a complete vehicle here!! In your case cdre if you were living in Japan for more than 6 months and owned the vehicle for 6 months (and it complied with standards) you could import any JDM vehicle to Canada. I guess that your gov't dosent like the RHD idea. or the ***** one for that matter, everybody should just buy a big 2 (-daimler) brand, be done with all this crackerjack box diesel business, and keep on keepin on OPEC. Its right on that some dudes are going about the swap though! Way to find a loop hole in the system!
