MBUSA is not required to sell theft-related-parts (TRP) to independents but does offer to sell some components as listed in section 3.7 on their TRP document to NASTF VSPs with a valid LSID. Recently, MBUSA released the 722.9 transmission from the TRP list but still will not sell the conductor plate requested in this SIR. NASTF continues to encourage MBUSA to expand it's TRP components available to NASTF VSPs.
