Icon14 Twin Cities Assembly Plant - The Last Ranger

Hey guys, so I know this subject has been beaten to death but I thought that you might enjoy some shots of the action inside the Twin Cities Assembly during the last day of production. Video will coming soon too.

Guys, the only reason I joined was to share something that I thought the Ranger community might find interesting. Who knows I might stick around. But I have no need to promote my website (Google is enough) and I knew I was going to catch some flak. No hurt feelings here.

Peace

don't mean to be rude, just tired of the millions of threads about the twin cities plant closing, IMHO its a dick move, and a week befored christmas, nice pics, but its just a heartless thing to do to hard working americans

The workers did the same thing when they killed the Crown Vic, they just signed everything.

They better not rest in peace, I want to see them come back with new life.

I just realized that that is their own hazmat/ factory fire truck. I remember when I worked at ford, the fire inspector had a king ranch, the two trainers had a Harley Davidson crew that was painted bright red. They also had a COE that they barely drove and two econolines that were the hazmat vans. The truck that we got to drive around in as security was an ext cab 4wd.
