The fender-flares is what I "think" I recognize AND mostly the shape of the headlights.

ummm no. The green 4 door truck is a ranger. In other countries you can get 4 full size doors and a bed that looks like it is off of a yota.

Yeah, I was wrong. I thought I had a good mental image of it. It is an international ranger, fenders, bumpers, side markers, mirrors, tails are all giveaways (that I didn't see at first).

Nope, it is not a Ranger from any country. Wrong fender, bumper, hood line, headlights, emblem placement, wheelwell/flare shape, etc.

It is a Toyota Hilux Double Cab, recent but not the current generation.
