The motor has been replaced by the military with a 2010 engine that is a 3.0L 148HP rather than the stock 2.8L 132HP. The replacement engine has a VW emblem on valve cover. It also has a different ROPS design. I couldn’t tag it in North Carolina but it has seat belts, horn, mirrors, wipers, turn signals, headlights hi/low, and tail lights.

Also has black out lights. It has the rear steer controller box but the rear steering component has been removed.

    Interested in street licensing. Does it have a serial number tag?
    Is the engine computer controlled? Has there been any other correlation with VW in parts purchases or engine markings?
