      Hello all, I just bought a new 2008 Ford Ranger that you can not get in the U.S. I am a retired U.S. Army Helicopter Pilot, From Texas, living in Belize, Central America. My new Ranger xl, is a 4 cyl 2.5 TURBO DIESEL, 5 spd, 4x4, four Door Crew Cab. My average hwy mileage @ 55-60 mph is about 27-30mpg. This Ranger is built by FORD/MAZDA in Thailand. You can look it up on Google Ford Ranger 2008, Thailand.. I drive up to Texas this time of year, around the 25 of Oct. I will have to bring my own fuel and oil filters as U.S. Ford Dealers will have no idea of what I've got. Makes ME feel like 'the LONE Ranger !!!! Uncle Sam

      30mpg must be amazing. What choppers did you fly in the Army? Do you have any pics of the Ranger?

      Harley5040 Yes my 2008 2.5L Turbo Ranger was built by Ford/ Mazda in Thailand. Bought it in Belize C.A. It's registered in Belize and has Belize Plates. I drove it through Mexico to the Texas Border. Being a U.S. Citizen I had no problem entering the U.S. No Taxes, No Inspections, No restrictions. I'm not sure If you can get it registered in the U.S. without making some mods to conform with U.S. requirements. About shipping cost I have no idea. BUT My Ranger is HERE. Brand New except for the trip up. You can come and inspect it if you can or want to. Filters and service could be worked out. I bring extra filters with me each time I drive Up. OR maybe I could buy another New one and drive it up for you if you like. Either way I think you should see this one and drive it first hand. regards uncle sam sam.scott@live.com

They CALLED Ford Motor Company in Mich. to inquire about the "Lone Ranger" 2008, 2.5L Turbo Diesel, FOUR DOOR Crew Cab, 4X4. This was THRIR REPLY. "Our FUTURE CYCLE Plans, we don't talk about." Hay Guys.... You figure it out. Uncle Sam
