New one from SouthAmerica

Hello everybody, i've been looking for a forum like this one and finally i found it !!
I just got a second hand truck, it's a 2002 Ford Ranger XLT 2.3 (gasoline).
I'm going to change all the oils and fluids and then fix some details to take pictures.
I hope to find interesting information, i can say i love these small trucks.

Saludos

This is my truck before i bought it.
I wanted to know if you use the "Anti-Tip rods" (I don't know if i translated it well or not) or not because i haven't seen any truck with the black tubes that my truck has behind the back window.

Saludos

Here we call them Roll Bars. Welcome nice truck and your lucky to have a 4 door. Here in the United States we dont have them.

Wow i didn't know there you don't have the four doors version..
We have a lot of versions, I live in Chile and i went to Argentina two months ago and there are some crazy versions of the Ranger. They have the powerstroke version with all kind of roll bars and implements.
Let me post some of the versions we have here in South America.

Rangers are good rated down here. Economic engines and durability over everything. Spare parts are cheap too. I'm pretty happy with my new truck, it feels like if i were driving a car instead of a truck, i'm changing the shockabsorvers and buying new tires (Wranglers off-road). The problem is here we cannot purchase lifting parts.

didn't know they put a gas engine in the four door models, haven't seen or heard of one here.

but then again, i haven't seen a diesel model with the exhaust coming out the side.

hahaha i'd love to ship you everything from here, the problem is the high freight price from here to there.
I'll post more pictures of rangers we have here.

Saludos
