    After living in Texas for almost 20 years, I moved back to the Philippines.

    My family here are big Ford fans and when it came time to choose a vehicle to purchase, it had to be a Ford.

    Ranger Raptor it is.

    The wait time here is crazy, one dealer had a wait list of 400, I had to order it from another province(state) and have it delivered to the dealer closest to me.

    I should get delivery this week, I will keep y'all posted.

    If you have any questions or need pictures of the Philippine(Asian/Australian/European) version of the Ranger, let me know.

    I'm sure we would love for you to provide an As Built for your Raptor Ranger, there's probably a few goodies in there we could turn on with Forscan.

    Our XLT, was just testing the roof box. It may go on the raptor, I will have to see how it fits.

    I don't think there is a better looking wheel for Medium-size trucks. Great clean/classy look. I've kind of gotten over spending money on wheel upgrades for looks, but if I ever got a wild hair, this is what I'd get.

    Im from TN,USA and in the Philippines right now myself. I just purchased a 2020 Ford Everest 4x4 with the Bi Turbo engine. Those Raptors sold like crazy this year and everywhere now. Really cool to see. My wife has a Ford Ecosport.

    Ill save you from he nightmare it took to get this unit, unless people are curious to the process.

    Nice! Where in Manila are you?

    we have the 3.2 Everest, not a bad engine if only it had the 10 speed.

    Let me know if you want to meet up sometime, I am in the south, alabang area.

    Any plans for the Everest?
