    My safari trucks need all the proper brush guards and other gear for the African safari big-game hunt. Khaki custom paint is fitting too. Warn inches? Light bars? Roll bars? Canvas canopies? Safari seats? Lift kits? Tires? What about protection from charging rhinos and elephants? What type of business in America can properly accessorize the Toyota safari rig? I might have a couple double cabs too.

    Maybe this Ford as a safari home on the road. Do I need a fuel tanker truck? A potable water truck to travel all over the Dark Continent? A few open Land Crusiers in same khaki livery?

    Also knowing what type of operation you are running would help

    provisions for gun racks need to be made too....some vehicles will be used to carry supplies, equipment, spare parts etc. ... one truck is planned to carry a refrigeration unit in back and another would be a a sanitary truck with a custom lavatory in back

    mainly in Namibia, much of the African savannah and also the jungle where it is navigable by truck

    every truck will have the in-dash navigation system

    the hunters and other people in the party don't need to sit in external safari seats: just inside the cabs when under way: vehicles will be dismounted for going after animals on foot

    is the armor for charging rhinos?

    work for African hunts?

    they are very spacious for gear as opposed to the jeep-like things

    1.no need for lavatories that's what the bush is for.
    2.most of the hunting I found was road hunting, trackers will ride up top looking for game, it is also quite fun. With hunters sitting inside the truck it takes longer when an animal is spotted to get ready.
    3. Charging rhinos and elephants!! Really??? They only charge if the babies are threatened, if so just shoot them. No amount of armor will proctect you!
    4. You will also need a roller across the bottom of the bed and a rear winch. Plus leaf spring rated for like 3tons(not kidding)
