Hi Folks

Was looking on CarPoint last night and came across a few Toyota Tundras for sale which have been converted to Oz compliance.

They are popular here in the USA but are not available with a diesel donk.

Nice that it has 4500 kg towing capacity which places it just below the F250.

Retail price on these in the USA is around $55K

I have an expat Aussie friend over here who is a bricky and has had one of them for 270,000 MILES with no problems.

$55k in USA, so why $119k here?

They are manufactured here in the USA for the US market.

There is freight to Australia which is abt $8,000 then GST on purchase price and freight thats another $6500.

Then the unit has to be converted to RHD and meet Australian ADR compliance, new AC, new lights, new windscreen, new seatbelts, new mirrors, etc etc

Conversion costs are around $25-35,000.

That's why they want the price in Oz.

A lot of money for a vehicle that is not supported in OZ!! There would be better options for the money i would think! Michael
