They should have used a different song though.

I'd always thought that song was referring to this:

But maybe that's cuz I grew up in DC...

Correct me if I'm wrong, but it seems one would be paying a hefty premium (assuming a particularly steep price tag) for marginal performance gains in adverse terrain with considerably worse handling. Additionally I doubt anyone dropping that kind of coin is going to be hauling much manure (or any other bed-worthy cargo)... I could be mistaken.

Is $500k hefty? I do really like it though!

This is Davis's upgrade to his 100 series.

I could be mistaken, and correct me if I'm wrong, but FJ40's were not designed as daily drivers either. Especially considering their marginal performance, poor handling, and steep price-to-rust ratio...

Some rich pseudo-Sultan in the Middle East is going to be super happy to be tooling around with a rocket launcher in the cargo area of that rig.

...or maybe camel manure.
