Where the fuck is ISIS getting it's large fleet of Toyota Land Cruisers and the pickups, Hilux and a few number of American pick ups too?

Toyota says it has no idea how it happens.

Toyota sells the trucks to people, who sell them to people, who sell them to different people, and they in turn sell them to other people, and then ISIS has a fleet of shiny Toyotas

Because Toyota doesn't really have any way to control if one of the certified dealers (or multiple) decide to boost their sales figures and make money on the side by supplying ISIS with vehicles.

they buy vehicles from wherever they can get them

Hiluxes are sold everywhere so theyre easy to get them then eventually they find their way into ISIS hands

American pickups

well last year a truck sold at an auction in Texas ended up in ISIS hands through Turkey

its that easy

You should read a book written by Major General Smedley Butler of US Marine Corps, called War is a Racket.

Saudi and Qatari governments are known to fund and supply ISIS.

Apparently a lot of these hiluxes are stolen from Australia and Singapore shipped to the middle East.

There's basically two ways how terrorists get Toyotas.

For Afghanistan its simple. An Importer in Pakistan buys used Toyotas from Japan then sells them on the second hand car market.
Imports of used vehichles are extremely common because Pakistan is RHD like Japan.

For ISIS its more complicated. Some they buy off the local second hand market, and some are privately owned by group members bought through regular dealer networks.

But I suspect you're talking about those videos where they have a long line of hundreds of brand new LandCruisers and Hilux that only could have come from a single fleet purchase.

ISIS do not order those cars directly from Toyota like a dealer does.

There shell companies headquartered in funny places that buy arms, equipment and vehicles from the manufacturer and sell them to other companies around the world.
It is not illegal. And these companies are not actually selling to ISIS, but they are the point where Toyota lose track of their cars.

Basically a middleman between the manufacturer, and the local/regional importer or distributor in Doha or wherever.

An ISIS affiliate business then makes a straw purchase on behalf of ISIS from the local importer in Doha, Casablanca, or Tripoli.

Sometimes the shell companies sell directly to Governments or Government Contractors.
Sometimes they ship the equipment directly from Toyota, to the buyer.
Sometimes the company takes delivery and modifies the vehicles on order. Usually paint, crash bars, extra lights, off road tires, winches and mounts for weapons.

An example of one of these shell companies is "Toyota of Gibraltar". They even have a website because they are for all intents and purposes a completely legitimate company.
But there are dozens of others in Cyprus, Malta, Hong Kong, Tenerife, Mallorca etc that operate on a similar principle.

ISIS would get them from their battle wins most from US-supplied Iraqi security forces. It's not surprising to find a Ford truck, AR rifle or Humvee in ISIS arsenal. Heck, they even captured an Abrams tank.
