I didnt get a pic of them, but when I was out there we had a couple contractors do a run with us. They had some nice yotas. Had winches front and back, and two of em had armored flip up "sun roofs". Then of course the green A.N.A rangers and hilux trucks.

I was personally hoping to see more of the A.N.A. and A.N.P. Ford Rangers. If anything, they were always at the chow hall.

This thread is legit - I love the up-armored LCs - but I also have to say - the FIRST thing I thought when I saw the picture of all those LCs lined-up was not too far from the earlier post. I mean think about it, each of those things cost more than $70K new - then put about $50 - $60+ worth of add-on/armor/jib-jab - and the drivers should consider themselves damn lucky that their country will pull out all the stops to make sure they're safe.
I would do bad things for one of those LCs JUST like they sit in those pictures.

-probably one of the best threads I've seen in a while.

I'm a huge Toyota fan, and when they told me I was deploying to Afghanistan, I couldn't contain my excitement. My first thought when they said Afghanistan, was Toyota's.

I just remembered when I was over there last year. I had the chance to ride with the Army MP's in their Land Cruisers and all I could say was DAMN! They're driving around a $60,000 luxury SUV. I saw a few Land Cruiser Prado's (Which I would personally prefer) that the Army operated as their patrol vehicles.

Those uparmoed LC's are more like $260,000 by the looks of the mods. That's how I was headed to SWA in 2006 and deploying with the Army. Best OS deployment ever.

The ones I posted I can see being 260K. But the regular MP Land Cruisers were practically bone stock. No armor or anything. Just an LED blue lightbar.

awesome thread OP. Couldn't it be possible the LC's are privately owned?

I admit that I enjoy the eye candy but it is hard to appreciate any of this when you pay as much as my family every year in taxes.

I know. I give props to the locals out there that keep their old school HiLux Surfs, Corollas, HiLuxs, Land Cruisers and 4-Runners running far longer than we ever have/could. Maybe the government can learn a thing or two from the locals out there about vehicle management.
