    I've read online that the Hilux is not allowed to be sold in the U.S. or at least it isn't sold in the U.S. Not quite sure though. However, I do know I prefer the Hilux over the Tacoma though just based on looks. I'm sure it's been discussed here but since I'm new, I figured I'd start a new thread on the issue.

    Tacoma since the Hilux isn't an option here.

    The Hilux pictured above is modded. This is a stock Hilux:

    Two Prados for the support crew followed this Hilux to the North Pole, and in fact had to pull out the truck on a couple of occasions. Prado shares a platform with the 4Runner and Tacoma.
