Yeah there is only 6 bolts that hold the to kicker rails on. take those out and you have full bed space again. But believe it or not i like not having bed space. That way i dont get asked by everyone and their brother to help them move.

ya i know that feeling... i got asked to help move a friend from 1hour from town into town.. geez that was a long day... drive 1 hour 15mins, spent an hour and a couple beers loading and tieing the **** down then drive the hour 15mins back into town and unload..

also got asked by the neighbour to pick some **** up for him.. a wood splitter that was 45mins one way and a road cruiser bike..

i almost never get asked... my ex's parents asked if they could borrow my old truck, not wanting to take my time, i told them i would drive for them, it wasn't a big deal... that's really it for vehicle favours...

yeah im hoping they're somewhat close. just by sitting in his truck it feels a tiny bit wider, but not that much. im hoping the difference would be small enough where i could figure out some way of mounting it. i dont think it listed the width on their site huh..

think i could email them and they could give me the dimensions of the bar? i think thats the info i need first lol

What if they made one without the bars going down into the bed? That wouldn't look too bad and you would have a light bar.

you could mount your spare on the roof of the cab...

also, BackRack makes rear bars for our trucks as well... I have one on my truck, and I think it would help a little in a roll over.

Yes the bars going down to the bed (kicker rails) are removable.

The measurements I needed when i ordered mine were from the
center of both stake holes driver-side to passenger-side)
top of bed to top of cab
width of cab at roof
bottom of bed to bed rail
the length of the bed

and I want to say that was it.

so i had my cousin measure the width of his 07 taco (kinda)
he measured from the inside of one side of the bed to the other side. measured 57 inches.

inside of the bed to the other side on our trucks is 53. then take into account the space over his bed is only 2-3 inches wide where ours is probably a good 5-6..

hmmmm

honestly tyler, i would just send them all your measurements, and have them make one for you, rather than buy one, and hope it fits...

Cuz we're only a small portion of ranger owners. The majority of people with rangers don't mod them and just view them as a normal everyday vehicle

since when does democracy listen to the masses? who cares what the majority of people think? is that how the government runs? i mean elections aren't based on what the majority thinks, nor is weather or not a country should go to war, or raise or lower taxes...

just build me a damn bar for my truck!
