Shipping was relatively cheap since YES the Navy did pay for the actual shipping. But I got a qoute of $1600 to ship it commercially. So I went with the Navy. But I dropped it off in mid-Feb and it sat and sat and sat.... until mid-Sept. It finally got here early Oct. By here I mean Sicily which is 500 miles south of me. So I paid 7 months of insurance on something I was not driving. Full coverage for the protection while it sat in a Navy warehouse. Then I rented a car 1-way for $100, put about $30 of gas in it (diesel so great mileage), $45 ferry crossing from mailand Italy to Sicily and $20 in tolls. Spent 2 nights on the base in Sicily for $90. $110 customs charge to get my truck out (shipping was free but they get you for some paperwork!!), Ferry and tolls for return trip: $65. 2 tanks of gas coming home: $80. So for $530 (not counting insurance) instead of $1600 I got my truck. But I had to wait 7 months for it.
But it's here and now I can enjoy it!!! I'll post some pics as soon as I figure out how... It's still basically stock other than the cap and tires.
