ok so i went to the dealership, they want around $340 for the set (i say around cuz the dollar/peso exchange rate has been going up lately which is good for you guys)
They have to be ordered, they say it takes about 1 week for the lights to get here... cheers

The aftermarket selection for headlights for the newer trucks are lame... these do look nice though. It's a shame there arent more headlights available to mod into there.

get a 98+ mazda then complain ... we got NO aftermarket heds, corners, tails, nothing. ... apparently you could get clear corners for the 94-97 .... then pre 94 when it was still mazda there is plenty of aftermarket for.

I am in contact with a guy that is headed down there. He's gonna check on getting me some heads and tails from Argentina. When he gets back to me with the price, I'll get back to you guys and let y'all know.
If he come through, how many guys here would like a set? Heads and tails, or just heads?

Those heads look awesome but thats not a mod I want to do, I like my baked and painted ones better. Those tails look great but again, I like the 06 up tails we have better.

I tried looking at the exterior pictures on the ford mexico website, but I can't see the detail I need.

The question I have, is - are the "ranger" logos any different?

I haven't heard back from him yet. I'll keep you guys posted. How many people here are realistically willing to pay for these? I will need to know how many sets to have him get, heads and tails, or just heads. PM me, and I'll put you on the list.
