so thats a mexican ranger?
haha
well i like the headlights, and taillights, but that interior is like so plain i guess you'd say, not even power windows!?

and that back window makes it look weird, i like the american rangers better llol

other than that its looks like its in mint condition lol
i bet that things cheap as hell to insure haha
 






...Subscribing...:biggthump

....I'm sure there will be a lot of questions asked about this one...I have a couple....

...Why the 2.3L instead of a diesel?
...What was the cost of this vehicle??

...And most importantly, we all want to know what it took to get the Ranger and all about the paperwork you are about to do...:popcorn:

...BrianDye, no need for bashing...:rolleyes:
 






yeah this truck doesnt pretty much have anything powered like windows etc. not even air bags bought back in 2006 but it was just sitting over in mexico now ill problably drive to work
 






well it looks like its brand new basically, interior looks super clean im sure it'l be a good truck

i thought it had the airbags though cus its got the cut-out on the passenger side dash for it

2.3l is the only type of engine they have over in mexico not even a 4.0
cost was about 13 thousand
i was planning way back in 2006 to stay in mexico for about 6 months so i just dicided to get the ranger ford over there is actually pretty good same with nissan everything else mostly breaks down quick like lol
paperwork i just have to register it, do a smog inspection and the rest should be easy i think it should pass smog
 






no guys my bad lol i didnt mean it in a "bashing" type of way, i worded it wrong lol
i think it would be a great truck though
 






Subscribing i wanna see this how this goes over with the DMV as far as the paperwork/smog is concerned.

So you have to run it through a import/export places or did you just drive across and then home?
 






yeah i was wondering how that worked too,
seems like it'd be a little tough

i had to run it trough an import place over in the texas border they just gave me a us custom certificate that when i go with the dmv i have to show to them telling them that it meets with epa us and california regulations ill register it next week see how it goes

It's a work truck, not suppossed to be nice and comfy you can get a Limited or XLT if you want power windows, locks, etc, but it costs twice as much

Where in Texas did you cross it? you drove it all the way from Veracruz to California?? how many miles?
Nice clean truck I wanted to buy one but I got my 02 Explorer instead :D
 






Very clean looking. No power windows and stuff to break down:thumbsup:
what are your plans for it? lifted? lowered? or something totally off-the-wall?
 






I like it! Love the crewcab... Very nice! I also like the better tailgate handle- looks a little beefier than the US models.
 






yeah i drove it all the way from veracruz right now it has 11651 km i really dont have plans for it right now but when i register it ill problably put bigger tires on it
 






heres a pic from the dash

I love that crew cab!

I'd take no air bags, too.

Otherwise, it's pretty much a Ranger.

Wonder if I can a cab swap on mine....
