    A team of researchers made the 3,000-mile round trip journey from Novo Air Base to the South Pole in a team of four jet-fueled Toyota Hiluxes outfitted by Arctic Trucks to stand up to the Antarctic cold.

    I wonder when the jet-fueled option will be available? :D

    i swear i saw one of these on the 405 the other day.....is wasnt these exact ones, so it didnt hav the huge tires and flairs, it was just a regular stock hilux, i was so confused on what i saw, but im pretty darn sure it was one, it was black, it was goin north and i was goin south, but i saw it from a ditance and in my head i said "nnoooo wwaayyy"

    so is it possble that i saw one, or what country are they sold in, maybe it was imported with the owner?:notsure:
