    I used a couple with clam shells in them. Used would be very hard to come by. I believe they become hand me downs to dignataries, and they might go to state department people or others that work with them.

    ya that's what I was thinking I doubt they get handed off to the public very often, probably sent off to embassy personal or something of that nature

    A recent retired fire chief had 2 Ford Ecoboost Exploers in his departure. They had the bullett proof door package. When the department is ready to take them out of service, they must either go to a PD, or be destroyed.

    Armored Suburbans and Yukons can be found on ebay fairly regularly. However, I have not seen any with the cupola opening.

    Wow, $91,000. I wonder how the armor plating is on the floors snd roof is. My buddy used to work on bank armored trucks and he saud the floors were just regular steel--not armored. Which didn't make sense to me.

    Though I don't need armor, I do miss being able to have a 3/4 ton.
