Changing skins on an armored pickup , just sounds a solution in search of a problem, when money is no object.

Money allways is a problem.

I find it hard to imagine where you would need to change from Toyota to Ford skin and think you are incognito because you switched .

Its the other way round. You drive a Ford disguised as a Toyota.
That is a thing. In allmost any theatre outside of Europe and North America there are lots of unsuspicious vehicles that can blend into the local traffic needed. This is currently a major problem for most western nations who are involved in missions abroad.
Once the number of vehicles needed goes up to a certain point it makes sense to design and build a common armored cassis that gets disguised by simple parts.

Its a major problem to re build off the shelf trucks to disguised protected vehicles. A lot of parts a non standard. In theatre repair and maintenance is a real proplem. While Toyota parts might be available the wear and tear parts of the protected vehicles have been largely replaced. Having a standard chassis with standard parts in the supply chain would make it much easier and cheaper to maintain a fleet.

A MK. 47 AGL mounted on the back of our Gator would be an excellent groundhog chaser.

Note the drone jammer is paired with a Krinkov, perhaps foreshadowing the PDW + Drone Jammer future (or likely just a coincidence)
