Eric,

You can get conversion kits that can make your truck a dually. I was thinking about customizing my old old Dakota that way. They have the hub adapaters, fenders and everything that you need. It's a rather simple process, really. I bet it looked weird!

My thing to do one day would get a F-350 Power Stroke, Standard Cab, Dually and get one big like, 18" wheel (wide) for the rear and one fat-*** tire. Drop that thing and make a 'sport' truck out of it. We all know that the'Stroker flies, imagine a light(er) one with a drop and non-dually tires/wheels. I think it would look kinda neat.

I am sure it has already been done, but I am not about to do a search, lol.

the dually was a rare opion for the very first gen rangers, and you could also get a diesel, dont know which motor it was but it was funky. neet little truck seen only about 1 or 2 most of them did make it this far in the time line.

yes....the golf cart ranger takes the cake

how did the diesels in the rangers perform? why wouldnt they make them now? i'm guessing the payload cappacity isnt as high as a f series truck, but people can get mad power out of diesels without much investment
