Where is everyone???

I have been on a satisfying holiday to South America for 3 weeks, and I come back, and it saddens me that the International Chapter was the only chapter/forum not to recieve a new post in the whole 3 weeks .

Where is everyone???

I know Explorers are sold in Japan/Australia/New Zealand, and Vietnam for a while, and the "old style" Explorer was sold in Europe for a little as well I think.

I know Escapes are sold all throughout Asia, including Australia and New Zealand.

Rangers/Couriers are sold throughout Asia and Africa as well as Australia and New Zealand.

F-Series are sold in Australia/New Zealand and South America.

Where are all these international Ford Truck owners???

They seem to be hiding !!!
You guys have some very interesting cars & trucks overseas. We all enjoy seeing pics of what the rest of the world gets to play with. Don't be shy to post pics of YOUR ordinary vehicles because they are NOT ordinary to us !!!

Your truck sure was lucky to find you Stephen !!!
The work you've done so far should guarantee many, many years of enjoyment out of that truck.
Great pics too !

Am hoping for some better pics when the weather brightens up here.

Wall to wall motor !!! Thats how they all should be. You're planning to have around 500 RWHP in the Falcon Ute?!?! Just how big is your trailor?
You guys have cars down there like the ones we daydream about, or have to build from scratch.
Hey, wait a minute !!! Where's the Roo bar ?
Keep the pics coming. There always great. Thank you.

Talking No, we ain't hiding

Hello there, a colombian, proud owner of a Bronco responding...
I am in the process of recruiting FTEs from my neck of the woods to see if I can create and why not lead a local chapter here. BTW, I will be going to Australia in a month or so (Canberra) and would like to contact FTE members there... Peace

G'Day! From America....

I was wondering about Aussie "ROO-BARS" because they seem like the most bulletproof brush guards that exist -

Can anyone show pics of wild looking armor?

- Gonna watch and keep my idea receptors wide open...

G'day Grey wolf.
Their ain't much that will get through a ROO Bar...
I personally don't have one on my F-Series.
This is the genuine equipment one in Australia (not a bad bar)
http://www.ford.com.au/showroom/acce...94413&model=72
One of the best aftermarket manufacturers makes some really good quality roo bars - just click on the link to bull bars.
http://www.tjmproducts.com.au/master_frameset.asp

My father just bought a diesel Ranger, and it has a pretty good bull bar on it, am hoping to post pics of it shortly.
