Heavy duty Tremec 5-speed manual OR optional 'adaptive shift' automatic transmission

I just hope they make them in "UNLIMITED" numbers (ie not like the Rebel/200 Pursuit)
The more I see these on the streets the better.
hmmm... maybe if they made the 250 a 'delete' option and lesser motors as an alternative if you didn't want such a beast...

The maloo will mooo like a cow

With the new attitude adopted by Ford/Tickford I guess only makes sense to throw in a HIPO Ute.
Now the Ford ute will out sell the holden ute by even more...:s3 :s6:

Oh yeah...Welcome to the boards mate.

Do I really have to write something funny in here?

Hehe it's all work mate. If I had the brass I probably would use this for work too.. It'd be the best ute on the site for sure!

Let me say that the bodykit on this is WAY better than Rebel type. I can see one of those nosecones on my XR8 if sideskirts etc are available.

The Azzurros are on the way so that would top off the package!

The Ford trayliner can take some rough treatment mate. A much better idea then the plain tray I had in my XH..
