The new one looks a lot like a Nissan Frontier to me.
That's what I was thinking...

Hey- they're still using the Gen II dash though, sooooo if anyone wantes a black interior bad enough... :D

...but that radio looks funky and they could have straightened the cig lighter for the picture. Fire the director! :D

At least the wheels are wrapped in Pirelli's, I guess LOL

dmv didnt give me any issues it was us customs that give me a small issue, i needed the sticker that goes under the hood(catalyst) that says year, engine size and that it conforms with usa and california epa emissions, had to get a letter from ford in mexico wich was a pain because they took forever to send it to me.

My bad. Been a long time.
I still got the truck but had to drive it back to Mexico due to too many fee's and certifications to make it Cali legal.

Might be best if you take pictures of the vehicle you want to import, like under hood decals, side door decals, and an outside body pic first to whoever you plan to import it with in Indiana.

I couldn't import mine because it's a full 4 door cab and in USA it's not a model that was being sold.
