idk about that spain business, 4.0s are german.
How the hell did Ford think that combo would ever work? Even a cursory glance through European history over the last century proves that Germany and France do not get along!

Oh, and hell, $30k for a new Ranger!? That's solidly in F-150 territory!

Not exactly no. The only truck that this dealer sales on a frequent basis is the ranger. They'll sit there for about a month or to. This paticular dealer charges alot more than the others do. I got mine for $14,500 brand new with nothing down tags and all. This same truck that this dealer had roughly about the same time wanted a little over $18,000 for it which is alot more than what I paid. The amount I paid also included the financing charges. I got my from Empire Ford in Abingdon,VA. Ford Family of Marion,VA can jump up and kiss my ass.

I'd rather have the 4.0 today. Germany aint bad when it comes to engines. That's what I love about my salvage engine (it's my 4th one if you're wondering). It was made in the states. I saw the die stamping on the block. That's rare with this truck.
