Deaver makes the best leaf springs in the biz. Fully custom to suit. Have had them on a few trucks over the years.

Assuming Deaver makes those springs as well, they must be custom for the application. They do have some nice Toyota leaf springs listed on their site.

They make off-the-shelf leaf packs but they can also make fully custom packs for specific needs such as custom campers or specific load carrying needs. We be had their 11 leaf packs on a few Toyotas and they’ve helped me modify them over time to best suit my vehicles evolving needs. Their facility in Santa Ana, Ca is very impressive. They’ve been making leaf springs there for well over 100 years!

Here’s a little write up I did about Deaver in a previous lifetime. http://www.off-road.com/aimages/articlestandard/toyota/422005/186291/article.html

These rigs get full armor so HD springs would be a must. The pics were taken at the local Ziebart shop where they get undercoated as part of the build.

Then they get shipped to ISIS or the Taliban?

I think ISIS and the Taliban are on the receiving end of live fire once they hit the sandbox ;)
Looks like the top of the roll bar is set up for a mount for a .50 cal gun with the boxes below for ammo...

Plus it seems like ISIS and Taliban are always driving tan ones with side graphics, not white ones like the one discussed here.

Maybe they will go to Ukraine.

Hello,

Their armed forces operate 76 Series.

Given their recent use of pickup trucks/utes converted into technical, supplying them with spec ops 79 Series makes sense.
