    Good looking truck you have waiting for the EUC to clear. Uncle Sugar seems to move the EUC requirement all around different equipment & items as he sees fit. There is no rhyme or reason, just what shows up as a "Q" demil, or the spinner lands on this week.

    Just be patient & your new to you truck will be home in the driveway before you know it, even though it seems like two lifetimes.

    Have you got your truck yet? I bought one on 9/11/2019. I was told 8-12 weeks for EUC to clear or reject me. If you are still waiting I am bummed as I would like to move along with the project.

    I am actually! Finally got the EUC approved earlier this week, and have transport arranged for next week. Looking forward to having the thing in hand finally ... only 15+ weeks of waiting, haha.

    themeec,
    If you don't mind my asking where is your LMTV coming from and who is bringing it to you? Did you go through Veritread? (SP)
    care to share the distance to deliver and the cost?
    Have you looked into registration? Here in California it is a no go. So I am good with that as I will be moving out of state anyways. Just means I can not drive it here until I am ready to leave. Then I will reg it in the state I am moving to.

    Here's what I have so far:
    Location - Trucking vehicle from Draper, UT
    Shipping - Didn't like trying to use Veritread's service, so got a quote via Fr8star
    Distance - Only about 356 miles
    Cost - So far $880 + Wreckers for winch-on/winch-off service on both ends @ Around $130-230/hr (final cost remains to be seen what time the wrecker service has to put in)
    Registration - About $84/yr because it's not heavy enough to qualify for commercial (**** yeah Idaho)

    As far as experience on this whole thing, they're slated to pick it up tomorrow, so I'll have to report back on the quality of the whole operation then.

    If the brakes work you can usually remove one of the air drain valves and screw in a regular air tool nipple and air up with a compressor and you will have brakes. You can pull it off the trailer with another vehicle and some straps. If the brakes are caged and you air it up and release the brakes the caging bolts will loosen up you can usually take them out easily if not by hand. Just make sure the truck is well chocked or still chained up when doing this. Then you can have someone look in the caging bolt holes with a light and see the can move as you step on the pedal.

    I may very well have to move it again while it's inoperable, so this is great info. At this point, I'm going to see how well these cats I've carefully herded together do on their own ...
