Design Notes - A modification of this RPG station wagon, and this SUV (Camper). The camper allowed more room, but the weight ballooned because of the added armor load, so that basically just allowed me to slope the armor. Not a bad trade-off, per se, and I was able to be loyal to the "SUV" design concept, but why use a pickup without having lots of armor?
This version allowed me to use the armor of the original Station Wagon. Also, all three Titans have Off-Road suspension because I've been told that is what makes an "SUV."
