FYI, the "Bronco" was peddled to the Japanese disaster response forces and their feedback was that "civilian" vehicles did not need all the heavy armour and steel framing. ST Kinetics then made a "civilian" version of the Bronco for non-military use, think they called it the ExtremeV (extreme conditions vehicle) with aluminum instead of steel to cut costs for the civilian market.

Think there is a commercial for it out on youtube. If you were looking for a disaster response vehicle, that variant might be more appropriate than one configured for IED resistance.
