McArthur Ford in Salina, Kansas is tired of waiting for a Ranger Raptor, so they made their own custom package to give the Ranger more off-road punch.

Raptor Ranger Still Won't Come To America, But Kansas Ford Dealer Offers Next Best Thing

A Ford dealer in Kansas got tired of waiting for the Ranger Raptor to come to America and decided to start offering a version of their own.

They call it the Baja Off-Road Package, and you won’t find it anywhere other than at Long McArthur Ford in Salina, Kansas. The dealer offers a similar package for their F-150 and Super Duty pickups but decided that the Ranger deserves the same amount of off-road love.

To start, they select a four-door XLT trim Ranger is equipped with the 302A equipment group and the tow and FX4 off-road packages. The 302A group includes 8-way adjustable heated seats, remote start, automatic high beams, and Ford’s Co-Pilot360 suite of driver-assist technologies. The FX4 package includes a locking rear diff, tow hooks, skid plates, as well as trail and terrain management control.

Next are some cosmetic upgrades. The grille is replaced by a Raptor-style black-painted affair that is emblazoned with the company name, while a bunch of chunky fender flares house larger off-road tires. Those tires, by the way, are 33-inch Toyo rubbers wrapped around 18-inch black-painted rims.

A 2-inch suspension lift is provided along with Fox 2.0 dampers and skid plates to give the Ranger even more off-road capability. An Addictive Desert Designs chase rack, a custom exhaust, and tinted windows add a little extra flare. Note the custom Ranger Baja graphics on the rear quarter.

Ford Performance provides a toolkit, all-weather floor mats endure muddy boots, and a spray-in bed liner keeps the bed from rusting out, while the tailgate gets a vinyl wrap for a little extra protection.

All this includes a 3-year or 36,000-mile warranty. It’s even reasonably cheap too at just $49,995 before any dealer discounts. That’s a lot better than the regular Raptor and includes quite a few more luxury items too. If you can’t wait for the Ranger Raptor, then consider Kansas as your next vacation destination and maybe pick up a new set of wheels along the way.
