Kids today don't know how easy they have it. When I was young, I had to walk 9 feet through shag carpet to change the TV channel.

That seems like a reasonable price for a low mileage Sequoia,  the armor, and backstory .... especially if you're a Toy fan

She would hate it

I drove an up-armored Land Cruiser while I was stationed in Kirkuk, Iraq. It was slow, handled poorly and you couldn't roll down the windows. But having said that, I sort of liked it. I think I may have mentioned that truck (See if I can dig up a pic).
I had the kurdish mechs in the motor pool trying to figure out how to lift it and put some big meats on it. Had to leave Iraq before I got it done...pity.


Edit: Found pics of my rat-ride. I kept it because no one else wanted it. It was an inline 6 diesel with a 5-speed. Would go anywhere, although one had to limit his 4-wheelin' adventures because of pesky mines and snipers, stuff like that.

Pic of my other ride that I flew every day, Bell 412

The in flight pic was north of Ballad, the center of mass for ISIS occupied territory

The up armored burb was up at Erbil. Those things were everywhere. I have a vid of one of those 25 feet in the air upside down. IED took out everyone inside. Real bad day, down in Baghdad.

Cool pics Don.

A friend who was working PSD in Iraq had some dash video of a lead vehicle narrowly missing an IED.  Vehicle is rocked to the side on two wheels and then all you hear is the radio chatter and incoming rounds hitting the vehicle as the guys put the hammer down to exit the area
