92F150Flare is gaining momentum as a positive member of FTE.
Wish I could help........Just don't do much of that with my lowered 2 wheeler........

If you're going to be at the air base you won't have any trouble finding where the 4x4 guys go. I heard about a spot out Rte 61 toward Walterboro and I'm sure there are more.
There's a couple of 4 wheeling shops on Dorchester Rd....toward Charleston from the base too.

If you need help with any of your wrenching, I can point you to a couple of good honest shops. Call me at 843-906-6244......be glad to help.

Thanks for your service!!

Bob

ok i am here i like this 70 degree weather. that means i can get a BIKE ANd ride it all the time. yes my truck is still in montana. does anyone have any idea how to get it down here reasonable. i have heard of the water boro one already. trying to find out who the gear heads are here. as for the good shops to go to thanks. we have an auto hobby shop on base so most work i will remain to do but yes projects that the shop tools cannont handle will go to a reliable shop. so that will help later. i am in goose creek sc on the naval base i am allowed my truck after christmas and will be here for about a year and a half so plenty of time to mud bog.

A buddy of mine had a "roommate" (?) while at Fort Jackson that was transferred from a base out of Wyoming or Colorado... and somehow he managed to get ahold of someone that ...could arrange to Find space on military transports (OTR). So if I recall correctly... this "someone" had the "room-mate's" truck driven up on ramps and covered on to a flatbed trailer (along w/ some other military "stuff") then Driven down to Ft. Jackson- then off-loaded. My only assumption is that the "room-mate" had to sign some-sort of waiver to make sure the truck driver wasn't held responsible for the load or condition of arrival.

So maybe someone associated w/ equipment logistics there at the Goose Creek base can recommend a method or a service provider?

why not just keep an eye out for the clean bodied trucks we have around here and get yourself a beater you can flog for your stay and save the money on shipping for the good parts for your truck at home. you can find decent 4x4s around here pretty easily.

....I thought I replied already..
But you did bring up a great idea and point Steve...
I know of a few early 70s to mid 90s F-series trucks with lit'l to zero rust for less than 2500-3000bux. They even run fairly decent iirc.

On Edit: I did find a AutoTransport online "outsourcing" company....From Laurel, MT to Chas, SC- for a '75 F150 LB (LB for worse case scenario for the truck being a lifted 4x4?)
It was listing it as approx. $1,175.00 w/a $150 dep.

So without knowing what you may want to spend...your options look open...

It's not likely nowadays that you'd get a POV on an aircraft manifest, what with all the focus on "Fraud, Waste, and Abuse".

The bright side is that there are plenty of cheap Fords down here, no emissions inspections, etc. Stock up on good sheet metal for your trucks back home.

"if there is any bumper laws, tires, mud flaps, emissions, checks laws or anything that will get me a tiket down here. dont know where to check"

No emissions or other inspections, and the only thing I've ever been popped for is a noise ticket many years ago. Basic advice is to have all your paperwork straight in case you go through a checkpoint, but you are used to that anyway.
