Go for it, You know you want to.
I had one and it was great fun but to use as a daily driver in cold weather is a no no. You might be warm after 50 miles.
Even the 24 volt bits arn't too bad to get hold of but $15,000 it OTT. I think you would get one maybe better than that over here for 3,000. +shipping
In the Summer with the roof and doors off and windscreen folded they are fantastic.
They also look better than a standard 88" and as ypou drive by people will say " what is that?"

The nearest you could get for looks but will fall short is a Jeep Wrangler.

I am going to the workshop to cut my fingers off for typing this.

I'd need to check my manuals, but an FFR Lightweight doesn't sound right.
1/4 tonne air portable which I assume is what is meant by lightweight, definately did come in an FFR because I had one on my det in the Royal Signals. Had both a 321 HF and 353 VHF with appropriate whip boxes on the sides and the front wings. Great truck and if I can get my hands on one in Canada I am going to defo buy it!
