WTF?!?!?!? After all the grief Land Rover got for their new Defender, that looks just like the vehicle above, Toyota is just going to copy it?

toyota seems to only be following the crowd as of late. defender, jeep renegade copies.. definitely not bringing originality back to the market. and my guess well never see a solid axle under a toyota stateside again because of safety. my guess like wranglers a SA is more prone to rollovers in a collision.

Somehow Aus gets solid axle Cruisers even though they are more of a "safety nanny state" with limits on lift heights, safety inspections etc.

I don't think it's a safety thing with SA but more of a comfort thing for NA.

i dunno, we’re flogging the snot out of the F150s we got this year I’m pretty impressed. They’re work spec vinyl seats, V8, stand alone rear locker with lots of time chained up, pallets of stuff in the bed and they’re not complaining. Sort of like a Hliux used to do.
