After some searching and seeing one locally, i have found a company that actually makes aluminum flatbeds that will fit the Ranger. It's made by Aluma LTD. (www.alumaklm.com
If you look under products, go to truck beds. They make one as small as 66"x 77". Some options are LED light upgrade, aluminum sides and tailgate that fit into stake pockets. They even have a gooseneck hitch option. I have done some looking and it looks as though it is priced under $1500 MSRP not including install price. (The larger 66"x87" has an MSRP of $1520) I know a few have wanted a flatbed, but didn't want to fab something, here's a good alternative. I might even get one in the not too distant future!
