non USA jeep owners rigs

Just wanted to know how many other countries (other than USA) are presented on this forum? How many from New Zealand? How many from Australia? How many from the Canada? etc. I am from Whangarei, New Zealand. How about some photos?
Here's is mine...

I live in Canada. (Windsor, Ontario across from Detroit, MI) I am originally from Ohio. In fact I frequently go back to visit family and drive right by the Jeep plant in Toledo off I75. I have a 2012 JK Unlimited on the way. Gecko green with soft top and half doors, automatic, ac, sirius with infinity upgrade, connectivity group, max tow, limited slip, side airbags, tube steps, factory slush mats. It has been a week....7 more to go by the dealers estimates. Beautiful TJ! Never been to NZ but maybe someday! Looks nice there!

That's just what I was thinking. Cool to see the US jeeps but they can be everywhere and anywhere.

I am from mexico, and in a few weeks I will be living and working at Auckland. I wonder if some of you know if it is possible to get a driving permit for my left hand drive jeep. I have seen LHD jeeps at NZ, but want to be sure if it worths the shipping from Mexico to NZ.
It is a Wrangler Rubicon 2003 with a lot of upgrades, I really want to take it to NZ.
Well thanks ina dvance for your help.

Hi Hector, to my knowledge you can get a LHD permit under some circumstances. I might have to do some homework here?? I used to own a 1960 Willys CJ3B that was LHD (brought to NZ as a trench digger) which I had a LHD permit for (nearly 20 years ago now) but from memory it was allowed as it was over a certain age. I will try and look into this for you and post something here over the next few days.
It would be so cool to have another TJ here being a Rubicon and all. I don't think any TJ Rubicons were imported here. Would really love to see one! Pics?

Hi Hector, I didn't get a chance to find anything out today, grrr. Way too busy at work today, interestingly Fridays are normally very quiet?? Will get back to you next week on the rules for LHD in NZ.
Whangarei from Auckland is only 160km roughly. When do you hope to get to NZ?

Pretty good pictures of Jeeping at baja, in front of the Huerfanito Island with all the jeeps looks great. Seems like you enjoy baja a lot, it's nice, many beautiful places to go, like San Luis Gonzaga, Guerrero Negro, La Salada, Jacume, San Pedro Martir, Erendira, Laguna Hanson, etc, etc, You can have desert, beaches, mountain, snow, forest, wel you name it. Keep coming to Baja.

This is going to be my last year jeeping at Baja in many years; I'm moving to New Zealand in a few months soon. May be this year Baja 1000 will be my last trip in my jeep.

Regards from Mexicali.

OK, first of all, have a look at the mason-dixon line and realise TX is in the south, Yanks are in the north:



Secondly, Texas is about the only free state there is. Our goofy .gov goodhair even suggested TX could secede as when we joined the union, that right was retained and many wouldn't blink an eye at ditching the debt and overgrown fed, not to mention some here (in the US) believe wealth should be spread so everyone eats, even if they don't work, while others would just as soon let lazy worthless non-working non-contributing citizens starve to death (most of TX). I fall into this category, not to mention (again) my feelings about putting me and mine into debt about $1M based on $135K each since the Prez/King dipped into my kitty without asking!!

Did I mention most residents here already consider TX it's own country?

Now back to your regularly scheduled interwebz...

Really off topic, but I'm so jealous for the right hand drive. I'd love to have that, and be different...
