1. Costs. Flying Hilux's over stateside and then back won't happen. Titanium armor, I've never even seen outfitted on any tier 1 vehicles. I can't imagine what this cost would be.

2. The gun mounts are used. We used 240 mounts on ATV's and Hilux's all the time. It's no different than the gun mounts we used on the GMV's that had open backs.

Now most SF teams use modified MRAPs but the Hilux is still used daily as well.

All I'm saying is this truck is a huge step forward compared to what is available on the local market over there. One of my truck purchases still had brain matter in the seats and bullet holes in the windshield, but we needed a new truck. Unless you've ever been where an SF Firebase is (not a conventional one), then you have no idea how remote some of those locations are and the availability of good vehicles or any replacement parts.

SF is like any other unit, they have budget constraints as well. It's not a "order anything you guys need" type of situation. Never has been. We always made due with what we had. Sort of the rednecks of the SOF community. My first tour in Afghanistan we wratchet strapped armor to the back bed rails of a GMV so we had some type of armor.

I'd have loved to see one of these come off a Chinook.

I think it's perfecto for it's use.

It's meant to scoot around, not combat. They have tanks, badass jets, CUCVs, oshkosh's, and hmmwv (sp?) for all that stuff.

I also think it need some Bilstein 5100s since they offer more droop than OME 886 and nitrocharger struts

They would need a lot more than ir lights to use nvgs. The interior of a Tacoma will not let nv work due to reflections. Need some interior mods.

The 1st gens that went over were modified in the interior. Radios pulled, door dingers D/C'd, and the interior lights were disconnected so as to not illuminate someone when they opend the doors at night. The double IR lights installed on the push bars were sufficient to provide light for the NVG's. The capabilities of new NVGs far surpasses what we had back in say Desert Storm.

I for one would like to know what brand of Brush Guard that is. It doesnt look like no run of the mill push bar or bull bar. Appears much more stout.

And the M240 swivel mounts are definitely used a lot. May not have a Russian DSHK up there but a M240B can rip it up when needed. The 1st Gens had them back in 01 and so do these. But likes been said, from a distance it will appear similar to the current "technicals" and gun trucks used by the Taliban and other wild bunches in the AO.

Just a few things this truck has heavy tow loops for slingloading under a helo, huge led light bar behind the cover on the front bumper, ( could use an ir filter over the light bar) The bed bar/cage goes through the bed and is attached directly to the frame. the bed has a carbon fiber bed liner, flush mounted cups to secure stuff in the bed, all of the small storage pockets in the bed were opened up huge and made of carbon fiber, the large side pockets usually get extra weapons ect put in them. the back of the truck is a dark matte charcoal color wrapped/ painted to reduce glare if anything was to drive up behind them. the bumper was made by trd heavy steel looks like you could run through some mud huts with it. the interior has been set up pretty awesome with racks for weapons, dash mounted tough books, plenty of storage room. I hope they release the bumper personally.

now drop a 5.7 or the diesel from a Hilux in that thing and it would be perfect.

Cool ride. Troops deserve at least a decent attempt at what's best, not the crap attempt like was posted about on previous pages.

Actually a diesel would work since it would run on JP8. Back when we designed the Blackhawk and the Humvee, we could sling load a standard Humvee under a standard Blackhawk. Things have changed.

Nice job on the truck, the exterior civilian lines really help to stay under the weather. I suspect the gun mount connects to the frame, and the gas tanks have interior foam. And Toyota can source parts easily.
