Ive been overseas in the middle east a lot, Toyota seems to be the most driven vehicle over there for whatever reason. My company vehicle was a Toyota Prado ( US version of a 4runner ), it was pretty cool.

They obviously want the most indestructible and reliable platform possible. I don't understand why Toyota is being frowned upon. I wonder what kind of TP they are using.....maybe ABC with have report about Isis preferring charman ultra strong next.

Leave it to the US Gov't. to view 'truck control' the way they view 'g*n control'. The results will be the same, too.
