In Norway we can make very few legal changes to our cars, so to get the car 100% road legal in Norway you have to buy your Arctic Truck Toyota at your local Toyota dealer.

There are many Norwegian who have built their own Island Inspired trucks, a few of them are members of the Pirate4x4.no community, Blom and Knixen er to of them.

How about changing tyres? In Finland it's quite free, if somewhere in the World have been used that size you like to use, you can change them. Of cource you need to proof that issue.

Also there is car registration center "AKE", where you can ask licence to build kind of car u like to. It's not just so simply in real life, because of bureaucracy things are made difficult just to annoy. But if we justify our projects well, its quite easy to get the licence to do changes, if those limits arent so much stepped over.

Also we can use different kind of parts in our cars, if they are origin from same weight or more weighted car, so they should be as safe as original part.

You can change the size of the tire 5% ... wheeeee. But if you can get the manufactorer of the car, or a TUV approval for bigger tires you can get it stamped in the papers for the car, and then it it legal.

Must the fenders cover the whole tire in order to be legal? I assumed the fender flares that I see on most of your vehicles are due to the laws. What navigation systems are all of you using?

The fender flares must cover the tracks of the tire.

The fender flares must cover the tracks of the tire.
We also have the same type of law here in my area although it is not strictly enforced. There are no real restrictions on tire size as long as the fenders cover the tire.
There are bumper height laws here also.
I have been using a GPS, notebook computer & Ozzie Explorer to map travels. Ozzie Explorer is new to me and I have been having some trouble importing maps to use with it. My goal is to have real time position on the map as I travel.
