Gary here, posting from the northwest of Ecuador. My wife and I retired from the USA 12 years ago, and live out in the cloud forest near the small town of Mindo, Ecuador. The road we live on is rough and rocky, and was tearing the heck out of the suspension of the Ford Escape hybrid I had been driving. I recently had the opportunity to buy a 2003 Patrol GRX 4.8L gasoline (petrol) in very good condition, so it has replaced the Escape in my garage (where it barely fits). Photos to come soon... This forum seems to be a bunch of nice folks, so I joined. I hope there are a few other Ecuadorian here, or at least some others living in South America (yo hablo español, e o Google translate fala português) so I hope to meet a few people here with a shared interest in this great vehicle.
