The back end in the regular cab remains the same with the only change of the plastic fender flares, the front cab was totally redesigned, in the crew cab models front and back are complete new.

The regular cab came with tinted tail lights, and from now all the models have the same suspension with the 4x4 appearance (2WD XL, 2WD sport, 4x4 XLT, 4x4 limited) .Seems that the "lowrider" rangers has just came to the end.

agreed with the fishyness...this could be a test truck from the NVH plant or one of the local plants since i see them everywhere...definately bring it to the cracker barrel meet....also wondering how you registered it in USA due to the fact it probably doesnt have half of the emissions stuff on them that the US trucks have....some of the test mules they dont even want them running in the USA

Thanks for the invitation to the Dec meet, attend a massive meeting of ranger enthusiast is something I will really like to do, but there is a problem, Im currently Living in Mexico and there is no plans for going back to US during the rest of the year. I lived in NJ until September and then I went back to MX, during my stay in NJ I had the chance to visit the north of the country, I really enjoyed that trip. I choosed the City of Warren as my location city because I really like the "Motor City" area.

This will probably answer the other question about the truck registration in the US, since the truck was purchased outside US the only thing I had to do is to show the MX registration.

So if anyone want to know anything about the Ford Rangers in Mexico please let me know and will be a pleasure to send pics, specs , and all the information needed.

I'm still using MX plates, and I didn't had any issue in NJ. I don't know if this could be the same in other states.

By the way, happy black Friday to everyone!!!
LOL

So Ford is updating the Ranger platform for sale in other countries and they're giving the US citizens the shaft? WTF Ford?!?!? The US WANTS these little trucks and with the new updates to it, I bet it would start selling even better than it did before..

Before and After

Checking all the tread I saw that there are some questions about the factory equipment, here you will see some pictures or the truck at the time that rolled out of the dealer, and after all the mods. As I told before in other post, I enjoy to accesorize by myself instead of buy the highest trim level.

Things I changed:

- Wheels
- Rack
- Fog Lamps
- Under Grille color
- Hitch receiver and ball
- Second grille (fitted in the bumper)
- Tinted Windows
- Electric Locks

The cost of the truck was only $15,700 so I think its a real deal, and I saved some money for the mods !
