I'm new around here.
I recently bought an 08 XL longbed to haul my motorcycle. The motorcycle fits in the bed (just) with the tailgate up.
I'd like to add a toolbox without losing the ability to close the tailgate when I'm hauling my motorcycle. This means I'm shopping for a side-mount box that sits on the bed rails.
Ideally, I'd like to fit a large, square topsider box like this: http://www.uwsta.com/products/produc...151.0.0?pp=12&
But when I visited my local accessory dealer they told me that the rails on the Ranger aren't wide or strong enough. Only a smaller L-shaped side mount box like this will work, they said: http://www.uwsta.com/products/produc...151.0.0?pp=12&
Are they right? Does anyone here have experience, or better yet photos, to show that a topside box works on the Ranger? I could really use the extra capacity and convenience of the larger, square-profile box and I assume that either style of box would require legs to support the underside of the box from the bed floor.
Grateful for any help/advice. Thanks.
