    The glaring lack of the current LC is foreboding.

    They only feature "new" vehicles at the SEMA show. The current LC has been around for almost 8 years now.

    Tundras and Tacomas are hot aftermarket vehicles, so they are always there.

    In this case, there will be some classic FJ40s there to help pump up the FJ Cruiser release.

    The closest Toyota has come to featuring a cruiser in the last 5 years I've been is to have an 1FZE engine on a stand with the TRD Supercharger installed.

    About time ARB started making products for the new 4Runner. I hope that includes OME.

    I think it would be interesting to see how the Mega Cruiser is displayed. Will it be in stock form? Will it be modified? Maybe in a left hand drive?

    What I think will be the most interesting is the results of showing the general U.S. public something that not many are familiar with.

    My bet is it will be stock and right hand drive.

    I agree, but the Mega has been around for what? 10 years now. And Toyota decides its time to one to the U.S. Makes me wonder what their intentions are.

    I think its just PR... I doubt they would ever sell it here, but I guess stranger things have happened. My understanding was that it was developed with some aid from GM (portal axles etc) and that there was an agreement between GM & Toyota that it would never be sold in north america. But that could just be hearsay

    With Toyota having all these Toyotas "BY" somebody you would have thought they would have covered all the bases and have the FJ40 and the 4Runner by "pimp my ride" :rolleyes:

    And when it was in production I believe it was extreemly low production numbers.

    It's probably just there as part of a Land Cruiser Heritage marketing thing, in support of the FJ Cruiser.

    Maybe your on to something. This was on Insideline.com:

    TURIN, Italy — A rival to GM's military Hummer will be unveiled later this year from an unlikely source. Fiat is planning to reveal a big, Humvee-style off-roader at the Bologna Motor Show in Italy this December.


    According to the article, Fiat is introducing their 'Hummer' 'to satisfy a NATO requirement for a Hummer-style military vehicle'.

    I wonder if maybe Toyota is thinking the same thing and wants to let GM know that they are in their rear view mirror.

    It would be a blast to have but does it look to much like the H2. I would hate to be grouped into that demo. even though it performs more like an H1.

    Nah, I'll take the comments any day to have a LHD Mega. Call me an H2 all day long to my face; I'd still have a permanent grin.
