Can I easily swap boxes?

Not sure if this is the right forum and I did make an attempt to research this some before asking.

I have a Fibre Body contractor box that fits on Ranger beds that are 84" or 7' long.

I have an extended bed 1993 Ranger and a Short bed 1999 Ranger. This box won't fit on them. A foot too short.

So could I find a long bed and switch them out or would I be better off just finding a Ranger with a 7' bed?

TIA for any advice.

Frame mounting and the frame being too short, can’t do it.

UNLESS you can mod up the frame and reposition the wheel openings or move the rear axle.

More work than it is worth.

Find another Ranger with a long bed or find a new Fibre Body contractor box.
