    There are Ford Ranger FFRs?

    I've only seen one but wasn't close enough to see where the sets were. It still keeps me up at night...

    No trouble getting someone to let you pull in, though!
    'He died who loved to live,' they'll say,
    'Unselfishly so we might have today!'
    Like hell! He fought because he had to fight;
    He died that's all. It was his unlucky night.

    A small amount of Rangers were trialled as FFR but were found to be unsuitable. Toyota Landcruisers are the new FFR/GS. One glaring issue with them though. The radio "Cage" is situated in the middle of the cargo compartment facing forward.Great for the Signaller to operate the radio but shite for storage of personal equipment/hot locks etc.
