    A buddy of mine spotted this bad boy off the side of the road last night. I went over and snapped a couple of camera phone pics of it. What the crap is it? I'm guessing one of those philipino jeepny trucks, but not sure...

    Toyota FJ25 with an Australian added bed, put on after the vehicle was sold as a "cab & chassis"

    The markings and emblem are meaningless - probably leftover from whatever vehicle contributed the bumper/grille thing.

    Might be Datsun/nissan fenders too.

    I doubt it's a toyota... Also, it's LHD, and the diffs are offset to the LH side as well... Hmmmm....

    Oh, and it's not a cab and chassis. The cab and bed are connected ala troopy style.

    That's it. The one I saw last night hs the exact same markings on the front edge of the hood. I have a close-up pic of it, but I can't get it off my phone....

    Interesting truck none-the-less...
