I am currently in West Point Mississippi and could not help but wonder why there are so many MRAP vehs running around. Turns out this little town is a major manufacturing center for Navistar who builds these trucks on US Government contract. Have to check into it further, I assume they must be road test but everywhere I look there is one coming or going. I will try to get some pics up.
BTW, this town is also home to Mossy Oak outdoors gear for our hunting and fishing enthusiasts.

The small gated community I am in (population approx 30,000 with only 2 banking machines and no swimming pool) also seems to have a large percentage of these MRAPs. I think there are more of them here than actual cars.
