Sweet ride dude! Are you stationed in Kuwait or a civi living there? Where do you plan to go after that? That is a good thing to know so everything you do to your truck will still allow you to export/import it to your next locale.

I will be in the same boat when I go home to NZ - the Samurai rack crawler will come with me.

RHD conversion
No need ... :clap: Land Transport Authority importing info
...it’s generally illegal to operate a LHD vehicle on New Zealand roads. However, some specific exemptions have been made to this law. The main exemptions are listed below.
1. A motor car or goods service vehicle that meets all of the following criteria:
* A gross vehicle mass of not more than 3,500 kilograms
* Imported by you, for your own personal use
* Manufactured less than 20 years before the date it was imported
* You have registered, owned and operated the vehicle overseas, for 90 days or more
* In a five-year period, you can only register one such vehicle in New Zealand
* The vehicle must be registered in the importer’s name (i.e. your name) for at least five years after it’s first registration in New Zealand unless the vehicle is 20 years old or more.

2. A motor car or goods service vehicle that meets all of the following criteria:
* A gross vehicle mass of not more than 3,500 kilograms
* Imported by you for your own personal use
* Was manufactured 20 years or more before the date it was imported
* In a 12-month period, you can only register one such vehicle in New Zealand.
-------------------------------------------------------------------
Modifications to a vehicle above a certain threshold requires inspection and certification by an LTSA appointed certifier, who will issue a certification plate and attach it to the vehicle in order to be able to pass a Warrant of Fitness.
Certification Thresholds

110= badass!

Here's one I saw for sale at LR of Guilford

No idea on price, I was afraid to ask
AFAIK that 110 and the 90 are the owner's trucks. Don't think they are for sale... I tried. However I will definitely vouch for that dealership as I picked up my disco there!
