    Trouble sourcing Fuso FG parts online

    The UAE is the land of the Canter... You won't find any on-line companies but parts are plentiful and relatively cheap. If you know what the part numbers for the items that you need, I may be able to help.

    The hitch receiver is not a bad idea at all. It would be a ‘just in case‘ addition which wouldn’t be hard to do.
