This will be a small truck, more similar in size to a Tacoma than a Tundra/Titan/Silverado/Ram. Engine is not a V8 diesel, but a 4 cylinder 2.8L turbo. Same class as the D4D Toyota, for example.

It would be IFS. Period. Very likely cab-on-ladder frame and live rear axle on leaf springs. Pretty much standard construction in small trucks for the last 20+ years.

It's believed to look like this, more or less. Not all that different from the other world trucks out there, Hilux, Ranger, Triton, Navara. They all sorta look like rounded bars of soap to me and all look kinda the same. All said I'll take mine in Toyota flavor, the reputation of the Hiiux being what it is. But I have a sneaky suspicion that this truck is more 'truck' than the Tacoma and that would be fine.

It, like everything now, would need suspension and a bull bar. For example, takes a stock Hilux:

To this:

'91 Pickup - Imelda / '08 Tacoma TRD - Donna
'09 Kawasaki KLR650
'98 Rhygin Juke SS / '12 Gunnar Rockhound 29 / '16 REEB Dikyelous

"Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty. Nobody is able to achieve this completely, but the striving for such achievement is in itself a part of the liberation and a foundation for inner security. " --Albert Einstein
