    Meant Idaho.

    Looking to buy these two of three trucks located in Idaho-might take all three. Problem is I cant fly-no passport, and it will take me too long to get one, plus leaving for hunting trip in a few weeks.

    Is anyone out that way, that can recommend a heavy mechanic to check them out. or does anyone know of such a service? These trucks are built exactly the way I want them.

    You can get a passport in about 3 days. Go to Scarborough near the town centre. The guy that went with me got 1 in less then 1 week. It is English speaking only though.

    Didnt realize you could get one so fast. I'm a bit too busy to take a few days now too.

    What's english speaking only?

    That location is English speaking only. There are not many people there. The other site is 4900 Yonge St. but you will be there a few hours. They probably speak every language but English.

    Thats funny. Apparantly they only speak english in the Barrie office too. All else get sent down to Scarborough. I try to avoid Scarborough as much as possible.

    I haven't been there in years unless I'm passing by on the 401. How far is that from home? Are you going to have them shipped?

    Its 3300 KMS. Shipping might get expensive. Will have to figure it all out before I commit to the vehicle. Building a new one (heavier spec single axle), is putting me in the low 90K range. And I stil wouldnt have a salter, bins, or flat bed. We're not into disposal, and dont clock major kms a year, so a used wouldnt be a problem. Esp at half the price. Those trucks are barely broken in, dont know how many engine hours are on them either-could be a deciding factor.

    How quick do you need these checked out?

    I have a friend in Idaho Falls that isn't a heavy mechanic but might no of someone who is that you could contact. I just don't know how quickly I would be able to talk to my buddy. Let me know

    I was just at the passport office. The only way to get it in 48 hours is with plane tickets. They need a statement saying why you need it in such a hurry. I need mine by friday and I had to pay an extra $30 for this and still make a statement and I was supposed to have plane tickets, but I told them we are driving to the states.

    Still waiting for the dealer to send me full specs on the truck. May take you up on the offer. Thanks.
