Question for Military Guys With Powerstroke !!

Okay Guys i am stationed in Guam and while i was over here i picked up my current truck. I love it and like many of us have way to much money in to sell it but i might have too. Shipping it back stateside is gonna cost me about 2000 grand of which i don't wanna spend !!! Then at least another five to register it!!!! ......As it sits its at 23 tons ( not actual its a calculation the navy uses to ship cars and trucks) They charge for anything over 20 tons..... So my question is if i take the lift off and put stock wheels and tires back on it will they still charge me ??? ( this is question for anybody who has shipped a four door long bed F250 stock!!! Thanks guys

That must be 23 tons for ALL of your belongings?... That doesn't sound right - I deployed my entire UH-60 line company (10 A/C) and all of our stuff was only 14.5 tons (less the A/C).

I suggest getting rid of other stuff until you're below 20 tins - anything to keep the truck!

ok first off your truck is nowhere near 23tons, secondly don't take the lift off, it'll cost you that much more to send just that, unless you have a buyer handy, then by all means sell it.

Shoot me a PM with all of your stats and I will reach out to my fellow Chief's on Guam. I would be willing to bet we can beat the system.

If I remember correctly officers can transport more weight. See if you can pay an officer to transport it for you.

The government will pay for the shipment of a POV that does not exceed 20 measurement tons. A compact car averages 9 tons and a full-size car is about 15 tons. Measurement tons can be determined by multiplying the length (in feet) by the height by the width, and then dividing by 40. Here's the formula: L in feet x H in feet x W in feet = Total Cubic Feet divided by 40.



You might be able to get it under by taking the lift off depending on the size.

You could also put small tires on it. Just play with the math and see if you can get it under. Maybe even take the bumpers off and put inside.
