Longbed? I didn't realize there were more options than just fleetside and flareside.

Yep... I think they're a 7' box or something around there.

Well yeah they are extremely hard to find in that setup, but in my mind I want as much bed space as I can get. My dad has a dakota that has the long bed which is 8'. I wish the bed was the same size, but overall the ranger is extremely reliable and I wouldnt trade that for an 8' bed. Here is basically what I'm going to do it to. https://www.ranger-forums.com/4-0l-o...0l-sohc-93309/

I still have my old ranger that is wrecked. :/ My favorite color was black but I can't find one that is black in the same setup as my old one, so I took the hit. Besides red is a pretty good color. I also want to SAS this ranger like I didn't do to my old one. Putting a Expo, 31 spline rear in it with disc brakes. The drum brakes when offroading tend to lock up when you hit a puddle of muddy water and going down a muddy hill is nerve racking when that happens.
