Stepside bed width

Hello all,

I'm thinking about getting a Ranger and have found a '97 on Craigslist. It's a stepside, and I wonder if a stepside will carry 4 foot wide plywood or drywall sheets. I called the owner and she has no idea what I am talking about. The Ranger is a 2 hour drive from here and I don't want to waste a trip.

Thanks in Advance,
Dave

I beleive it's 44" or 46" between the bed rails and tailgate width.

I know the tool chest I bought for mine was a 42" model and it didn't have much clearance on either side.

It's definitely less than 48" (I think it was 44"). So nope, you can't fit a piece of plywood in there unless you lean it on one of the bedrails.
