Hello from the cold country, Norway!

Well, ive been searching google for a time, in hope to find som upgrades for my car.
And, all the time im ending up at this site and seeing trough the Project log section.
After studying that part of the site i tought that i maybe should register and show of a, probably, unusual Ranger for you guys! I havent seen any pic's of this kind here before

The car is buildth on the same platform as the Mazda BT50, as ive been told by the lokal Ford experts
Anyway, some pics:

Here it is on a right spot!

Future plans is to rais it a litle, and get some badass fenders so it look more like an Artic truck. Well, not this heavy since the roads here in Norway is to small for those. But close to what you see here!

So, do you guys now any shops that offer me parts for that car?

Welcome!

I don't know of any places to get aftermarket parts for your Ranger. Everything we have is directed toward the North American version.

The problem is that ive allready have contactet all of the Norwegian Offroad store's, but since the car is so new and sort of expensive here in norway, all the store dont see any reason to even try to help me since ive been the first to ask for lift/wide fenders ant stuff for that car.

But, everyone seems to have up to 48" tires for me..

And its mainly Toyota HiLux and Nissan Navara that they have parts for.

Well If someone is running 40 inch tires then they either built their vehicle themselves or went to an off road shop. They didn't buy any kit from a store. Try British offroad stores??


Even for us in America, a lot of the best modifications we do were made by users, not companies.

Welcome to FRF.

Have you tried looking on English or German shops? I'm pretty sure you can find stuff for that truck in the UK or Germany...

Check this out. 4x4at

That's from the UK, i think. You just have to add UK to your google search and you'd be good to go. Like this: OFFROAD + FORD RANGER + UK. Change UK for Germany or some other country. That's how I got that site. Hope it helps.

And I hear you with not getting parts for your truck... Here it's all about the Nissan...

This is not my first offroader, so i know that i need to create som off the part by my selfe.
But, for the fenders, that is something i really would enjoy if where fabricmade. Mainly because the finish would be bether than , my, homemade one's!

And parts like new leafs/shackles and spacers are something that i rather buy then create selfe becouse of some stupid norwegian rules.
