Maybe it was imported as a farm truck first and then passed on... :unsure:

seems highly unlikely any farmer would ever justify the importing fees just to have some ugly toyota when 3/4 and 1ton pickup trucks are plentiful here.....
Maybe he likes ugly toyotas, farmers are people too you know. 😂
I worked for a rancher who had half a dozen farm trucks and only one of them still had stock ride height and tires. And I'm sure he used the ranch to buy his ford Raptor too.

There is a guy around here who has farm plates on his Shelby F150.

One of the good "problems" farmers sometimes have is a profitable year, which means they have to buy a bunch of farm related stuff by the end of the year to subtract from their income and keep their taxes down. Thus a lot of successful farms have a whole bunch of classic tractors, ATVs, trucks, etc.. A foreign market HiLux would fit right in, if the IRS ever challenges the deduction the fact it isn't street licensable is a pretty good defense.
