you can on St Croix.. I'd assume it's the same there.

Ive seen a Razr with a road conversion kit here, a guy in the airforce daily drives it.

Best check with BMV.
Terrain is different on STT/STJ.
Much more mountainous and steep.

Thats pretty much what they are designed for 😉

I drove one in Iraq on the FOB; I'd totally buy one down here after a loan or three is paid off (haha).

I'd prefer an air conditioned tank with a turret gun, myself.

Nice looking ride for stateside beaches and forests but I'd say it's hardly practical for the VI. I don't know about STX but there's really no place to drive them off road in STT/STJ.

Plus, you be sunburnt to hell and back driving it around, never be able leave anything unattended in it and it offers no protection in the event of an accident.

Lot's of places to drive them on STX, including some so called "roads". Looks like a canvass sun/rain shield would be an easy add if not already an option. You don't want to leave anything unattended in a regular vehicle anyway. No worse than a Jeep. I imagine a small lock box/tool box could be attached to the rear with some customization if that's not already an option. And for AC, well I remember the days of long past with old fashioned electric fans on the yellow school buses for the driver. Some had two or three I think.

Green two-seater with a pickup bed, right? Those and Gators were all over the FOBs.

The point is to license them for use ON our horrible roads, not to use them as a toy.
That was the question raised by the OP.
We have one of the same or similar licensed on STX.

Someone did exactly that to a Polaris on STT. I saw the post of Facebook where people were saying she'd never get it registered, but she did. I've never seen it on the roads, but it is possible to get them street legal and licensed here

That's good to know. I think they're pretty neat and would be very handy to have here. Never locked any car I've ever owned here (never had anything t'iefed), never used the A/C on any (windows down suits me just fine) and a top would be easy to install (if it's not an option you can buy as an add-on). Cool.

Yup, if you were LUCKY it still had a windshield too! (otherwise it felt like someone had put a fan in an oven and turned it on high in front of you).

the amount of options they have are a bit silly.. I wouldn't be surprised at ALL if there was an AC option (I KNOW there's a heater option & real doors & a hard roof (also had a sterio & winch etc... all from the factory), we used one with it in Alaska)

I guess if someone were seriously interested in having one, that's something they would look into.

There are probably hundreds of jeeps with bikini tops and no doors running around the island already

Save up some extra money and get the Yamaha

They're pretty bulletproof. Change fluids and don't get into an accident and it will last
