I am in Washington DC today. These units are not for the US market. You should see the tactical HF radios!

Squishy!

It would be way cool to get a 3.0L diesel Hilux/Taco here.

I like the options list for the "hardtop" .... HF radio, transmission lock, long range fuel tank...... too cool.

Thanks Jeff- Cool pics boss.

Are the windows thick? Looks like the last pic has normal glass or if that isn't a shadow... CRAZY thick glass.

What caliber round are these built to stop?

And no mention on the sticker of the total number of cup holders - gastly! What would an American vehicle shopper do about such an omission? :rolleyes:

The glass was not too thick and I did not notice what NATO rating the armor had. I really liked the Hilux. The armor was really unobtrusive on the Hilux and the guy I talked to said that people who purchase them put a crappy paint job on them so they look like all the other Hiluxs in the developing world and no one really notices that they are armored.:D
