Desert Guys: Need yer help

Ok so ive been thrown around the idea of getn a styleside bed and i was thinking maybe i could just go with the styleside rear glass. get some buldge etc. to cover my tires since they love to get me here in MN for stickn out. but my question is, is it even possible to hook up the styleside glass to a flareside ranger?

i suppose it could fit as long as i made some tube in the rear for it to mount to?

thanks for any info

if you made the tube frame, bolted the bedsides to it then slide the flareside bed in i guess its possible. be some work though, and you would need to reinforce the bed then too.


i think you could make ti work

i think you will miss the stepie once it is gone, atleast i think i would, but i like the flares that the lvl2s have, im getting tired of stone chips, and mud on the paint with 200 ft from the car wash...
