I consider the process to be a paper trail that our government can use, to trace the asset via reliable sources (us citizens!).I've wondered that as well. Never heard of anyone being denied, which makes me wonder what the value of the process is to begin with.
The EUC serves a few purposes. First, it allows the USG to conduct due diligence on the buyer and their business. It allows the USG to ensure no parties involved in the transaction are on any ITAR Debarred lists, Denied Persons Lists by BIS, specially designated individuals/ nationals by OFAC or on any terror watch lists. Second, it creates a paper trail that allows the USG to track this HMMWV in case something is suspicious. A lot of times TSC wont have the grounds to deny someone, but something in the individuals background doesn't feel right. In this case, TSC sends out a field agent after approval to follow up on the controlled item and make sure you are doing what you said you would be doing with it in the EUC. Third, it also creates a paper trail that would hang you if you ever screwed up and violated any export regulations.
You take the truck someplace else and use it to impersonate US forces. Sort of like owning a cop car with all the lights and logos. It's a self-evident problem.And if we were talking about something dangerous, then I might agree.
But usually, it is for something completely ridiculous... like a truck.
Not a truck decked out in armor and machine guns. Just a truck with no "goodies" on it.
Or a transfer case of the same make and model that anyone can go to AutoZone and buy.
How the heck does one justify needing a paper trail or ANY sort of due diligence on items like this?

Well, I think the EUC and ITAR gets you to basically the same place, since they have the paper trail and laws there to prevent you from exporting it to a conflict region.If that were true then they would require that we at least paint them so they don't look like they are still military vehicles. I have seen nothing in the documents or requirements that even suggests this is a concern.

There is a thread or 2 from 8 or nine years ago during the big deuce sell-off that somebody stated about being denied for a EUC , search is your friend .
