    I'm retarded and really don't have much clue as to what I'm looking at but thought this was interesting.

    A lady I've been seeing was passing through Moab and took these pics for me. Looks like a Hilux modified for SF?:notsure:
    I thought they've only been doing that with Tacomas? And why is a Hilux in Moab?

    It's badass either way. :D

    The trucks I have seen in Laredo had those same plates. No manufacture logos no nothing...just Michigan plates.

    Yeah if you view the full size 2nd pic you can see the Michigan plates

    I assume that's where they're being built/modified and shipped to wherever?

    And yeah I assume it's for Special Forces... looks like the same communication stuff on top like I've seen on other SF Tacos:eek:

    The USG is probably for "United States Government". If I had to guess, it is probably in Moab to run some tests. Seeing as Moab is basically a mecca for offroading, it's probably one of the best places to test out a vehicle.

    As for the Michigan plates, those are manufacturer plates. Basically lets a manufacture drive a test vehicle on public roads and highways. They get put on test vehicles and prototypes all the time.
