I don't see any phone number on the mercado libre page. Wish I could help you out at least by calling those folks. I'm sure most of the border cities in Mexico have Rangers as government vehicles, regardless of their use. If I ever see or find out about a place selling or parting out one, i'll let you know.

Yeah the ad is an old one, I had a guy call on it when it was active, then it went inactive and never got any solid info. Do you have any friends or buddies that work in the government of any sort that uses the double cab? My thought is if I can get a hold of and talk with someone that knows what happens to the graveyard vehicles then things could really roll better.

My city's government does not use Rangers as official vehicles. They use F150s or Silverados. Crewcab Rangers are not common to be found on a JY. And when you find one, it is stripped fast. The mercado libre ad was cool because most of the trucks there were crewcab Rangers. If you had a phone number, you could look around for the place's location based on the phone number.

Found his email: luffymonkeey@hotmail.com. I don't know if that's the same email you have. Maybe you could reach him via email. My work computer has many sites blocked, so I can't look around freely. If you check his posts in Mercado Libre, seems like he bought some vehicles during 2012, and then never sold anything again. Even his username is not active since he sold a VW Amarok during the same period of time the Ranger you were looking was sold.

Hmm how did you find the email? I emailed him, we will see if he answers back. If you are up for it and want to try the number to see if any of the other trucks are available in that lot that would be amazing. I dont speak any spanish so if he doesnt speak english it wouldnt work out for me. Thanks again for your assistance.

It's a landline. The 656 is the area code of Juarez, Chihuahua.

There is no way to get the address from the yard by using the phone number.

If I were traveling to Cali, Juarez would be half way. It is far.

Do you know if importing a cab to the States is an easy process?

simple answer is yes, answer to your question is no, You do not "import" it persay, it is just a part, I am not bringing a whole truck and trying to register the whole truck, it would be like driving a frame or an axle or any other part.
