Default Rigs in Costa Rica

My wife and I were fortunate enough to take a 10 day vacation to Costa Rica earlier in the month. It was our first visit to Central America, and we really enjoyed everything about Costa Rica: the locals were always friendly, the mountains and forests stunning, and the beaches had every type of sand and surf imaginable.

I don't think I'll share all the details of the vacation, but in keeping with the spirit of Rising Sun, the other great thing about Costa Rica is the trucks. I guess I've reached a point in my life where I drool over a nice diesel Cruiser as often as I'll stare at lady in a bikini. It got to the point where there were so many Cruisers that I stopped pointing them out: dozens of newer tray back 70 series, a few newer Troopies, Prados and Fortuners everywhere, probably 100+ FJ40 and BJ40's, solid-axle diesel minis, and 3 door BJ74's that were government issued power and gas trucks. Plus there were TDi 110 Defenders all over the place, a bunch of Series 88's, and Patrols old and new. Not as many 60's, 80's and 100's, but they were around. And 1 diesel 200 series cruisin' the streets of Tamarindo.

I took a few pictures, so I thought I'd post them up in true truck porn fashion. Enjoy!
