    So wait if should not have rolled the window down how could he return fire?

    His eyes where alert, he was looking all around and he did have his hands on the weapon until the other guy told him to make a call.

    IMO you care way too much when you don't even know what the training was or if he told him to stay behind.

    Anyway lets just agree to disagree.

    At the point of ramming and the bad guys mightve felt on the defensive at that time and had to make it a shootout and bullets were starting to damage the windshield or glass to where it was not safe anymore, thats when you might have to return fire.

    I could also say the same about you defending the guy when you dont know the training either. While the driver exits, there were no words spoken, so at least we know he was not told by the driver to stay in the vehicle.

    But Im okay with agreeing to disagree, both of them were safe in the end and Im good with that. I just wouldnt want him as a backup ever again.

    Special shout-out to that Toyota Land Cruiser (MT) -- those things are practically indestructible.

    There are still land cruisers on the road. Only defenders available are the ones that weren't driven.

    Yeah, the whole idea in this class of car is toughness and reliability. Toyota is the platinum standard.

    When you write a check for $87 grand, what you're paying for is the million-mile engineering needed to take the Land Cruiser safely to the globe's toughest and roughest edges. We're not exaggerating; much of the vehicle is designed for a 25-year service life. Everything from suspension components to window glass is thicker and stronger and utterly overbuilt compared to flimsy modern crossovers or even the full-size pickups we hold dear as Americans.

    My grandfather literally died after a car chase that stretched from where he and a partner robbed a bank in Inglewood into Los Angeles. His partner was exchanging gunfire with police the entire way. Insane.

    The older manual D-models are such beastly trucks. Simple to work on, it's the closest thing to my Willy's Jeep I've seen (and I ****ing love Toyotas, btw). Only problem is parts are a pain in the ass expensive to get.

    I'm surprised the passenger's eyes haven't become a meme yet.

    This vid puts all three views up at once after the start -- you can finally get perspective on everything.

    I guess they forgot to shoot the bullet proof tires.
