My friend (kdog) and I are "Top Gear" addicts, and last week he informed me of the newest episode where they drive a newer style Hilux (Tacoma) all the way to the North Pole.

I have not seen any of these yet, but fortunately someone was nice enough to upload them to YouTube so we can enjoy them :thumbs:

WOW, I thought maybe my link was invalid, so I checked with YouTube, and it says:

This video is no longer available due to a copyright claim by a third party.

:o

Dang, I have not even seen these yet :tantrum:

Uh oh I bet Top Gear has requested YouTube to remove the videos.

If I find it elsewhere, then I will link it up. I really wanted to watch this one, I've heard lots of people say its one of their best episodes--

Yeah, that is a bummer. I watched the first 3 last night but I started nodding off. Now I wish I had just soldiered through the last 3. They were mashing that Hilux pretty tough from what I saw. Though that sloshy ice over nothing but thousands of feet of near freezing ocean is a little much for me. I would dig wheeling it as long as I didnt have to go over the ocean, that just sketches me out. Hilux + sinking into the ocean in freezing cold water =  :yikes:

I did find some sweet pictures of the Hilux they used. I love how they set those things up for the nasty snow. It looks quite similar to a newer tacoma though I think the front headlights/grill and bed are slightly different...
