    Where are you shipping from?
    Who are you shipping with?
    Have you tried several different shipping firms to compare prices?
    Have you SEEN this vehicle, with your own two eyes?
    Is this a firm with a good name you are buying from?

    BE VERY CAREFUL where and who you are purchasing the vehicle from.
    P.M. me if you don't want to let other members (Why not though?) know.
    I know of GOOD ones readily available here in Europe that have NO quirk,s rip off false declarations and or scam abilities!.
    I very nearly bought one last month that had more nearly new "Things electronic" in than M.I.'42'. runs drives and is road registered.
    Shipping from Europe (U.K) would be around £1600. or £600 deck freight.
    I know of REPUTABLE trustworthy firms that build, recondition, To your specification, or sell as is,

    Will they be available for a while or is this something I would have to act on fast because to be honest I’m still trying to get the money but I’ve been searching around and have only found one source of brdm2 and that’s through mortar investments

    You can't get that thing shipped across the US from an east coast port to Montana for under $4k. 2000 to 2500mi at $2 a mile. That's being nice about it with not knowing what fuel costs could be in 6 to 10 months when it could be picked up from port.

    Ok this may sound silly but couldn’t I fly down to the port and drive it back now of course it still would cost a lot in gas but it’s just a thought

    ha, ok. If that is your idea. With a chase truck with tons of spare parts that hopefully come along with it in your purchase you may make it 100 miles if even out of the port gates. Those 13R18 tires aren't something you will find a Les Schwab either.

    Recovering something that is meant for cross country driving like a 5 ton, M915, LMTV after its sat for a bit is one thing. A wheeled combat vehicle is another. i have rode in a V100 and I am sure even I would be worn out after 200 miles in the drivers seat and I drive a 5 ton everywhere more miles than anyone.
