I guess everyone's into upgrades and bling. An odd choice for that grill and light surrounds to show up.

Yep. Likely just the rear crossmember though which can be replaced somewhat easily.

Maybe there's some anti-prize for the worst Defender sighting...

It actually has the factory SVX grill and not the KBX crap.

Do you think ISIS will start selling their take off parts?

I'm wondering if we'll start seeing this truck in videos like the plumber's truck.

Bishop Cali. Nice rig. Dude was converting the entire inside to be a sleeper (he's a climber). Also swapped the tranny to manual.

the land cruiser trucks that are being givin to ISIS are supplied to them by the Saudi Arabians. 100s of them.. or else how could many foriegn fighters from all over the world, that are fighting the proxy war, that are paid by the Saudis to fight could afford these trucks? As a matter of Fact, if you research and see that Saudi arabia is the biggest importer of Toyota trucks on this earth. no one buys these trucks except of saudis..

Since ISIS is fighting the proxy war for Saudi Arabia in the Middle East, it supplies all the tools for them..

The defender 90 that was spotted with ISIS is for sure 1000% gifted by the Saudis.. No Doubt.

Every illicit network, criminal or terrorist utilizes "cut outs" in support of their logistical train to deny sponsorship. Land Cruiser picks ups are all over the Middle East and Africa. Land Cruiser pick ups in Southern Afghanistan are often synonymous with the opium trade as they get used as outriders / security in their convoys moving into Baram shah due to their reliability. Saudis do purchased a bunch along with every other NGO, government agency, and militia force.
