The Highwayman outside? Damn RIGHT you like the look of her. That's one sweet machine, a recent ac-quisition…we're just about to spruce her up, make some adjustments, then sell her off to ol' man Bishop.”
T-Ray is the manager of the chop shop in New Reno in Fallout 2.
A heavily muscled black man with thick glasses, a light beard, and an attitude, T-Ray is the head of the New Reno chop shop. He has an immense sex drive, ego, and is a talented mechanic (in that order). He is a more or less independent contractor for John Bishop.
Interactions with the player character
|This character is involved in quests.|
- Recover your stolen car.: T-Ray ordered the theft of the player's Highwayman. Recovering the car can be done in a number of ways.
- T-Ray will upgrade the car for the player if they left him alive. The upgrade entails more trunk space and better performance on the world map and costs $500 ($300 with decent Barter).
- After the game is finished, T-Ray will install grav-plates, increasing car speed and reducing fuel consumption to next to nothing.
- T-Ray was supposed to sell batteries, but due to bugs, the option never appears.
- Female characters can sleep with T-Ray repeatedly. Doing so ten times in a row will cause his head to explode and the game to crash as a result of a bug.

Behind the scenes
- T-Ray is based on Tramell Ray Isaac, the lead artist of Fallout 2. Many of T-Ray's habits are based on Tramell's own.
- Fallout 2 cultural references#South Park
- Even with official patches, T-Ray is a heavily bugged character. Bugs include mislabeled dialogue options (if the game prints Error and you suddenly gain 1002 experience points, that's because the game tries to print the non-existent 1002nd dialogue line), wrong dialogue conditions, improper spawning, crashes, and more. The Unofficial Fallout 2 Patch fixes the character.
T-Ray only appears only in Fallout 2.
