    You can get 4 tires and wheels loaded up with a cage? I didn't think that was possible. It's the main thing that has kept me from going to a cage right now.

    Its possible but the angles etc make it a awkward angle for your back. Its easier if you take out the passenger seat.

    LOL, That's the reason I'm scared of cleaning the inside of my back window in my Boss. I tried it once the first year I owned it and haven't been back there since.That's why it looks like it's tinted, but it's not...:D

    Ahh... haha. I don't think the wife would like sitting on a tire for a 4 hour drive to the track.

    Rats!! The Rangers sold in Chile are made in Argentina..... means basically disposable.... I imagine the ones used in Afghanistan where made in Australia.... totally different story.... When Toyota went for making pickups in Japan to making them in Argentina...... quality dropped through the floor.

    Hell, I'd rock it, but I just bought a new trailer and I doubt it would pull it.

    We have them in Aus, I haven't asked how much yet but in April they were estimated to be just north of AUD $75,000, about USD $53,500

    I would estimate them coming in less than that since it would like be too close to a lower content , regular Raptor. We have a new one just over 70K , but it is pretty well equipped , for example. Though completely loaded for bear, could approach that figure, I imagine?

    Likely viewing possible tax consequences for the out of Country build ( and what it may do to the price point) , at the present time. Ford wants to launch the new Ranger before working on a major upgrade, too - one would imagine? Noted, today, that Ford is at odds with the Administration since US Steel has seen a huge increase with all the tariff proposals and is now the most expensive in the World. They are taking a 1 billion hit on just price increases and are viewing costs that will eventually hit consumers, which none of us want. Most of the US Manufacturers are in a holding pattern for some models , as well as some of the other Companies that export to the US. Just my analysis from chatting with friends in the Industry, but I think anyone can logically see this viewpoint with uncertainty in these Global Manufacturing Corporations. Makes one wonder about Buick , since they sell more than double in China as they do in the US , and I know a model or two is sent over to us?
