Wood Stakes for Ranger

I need to make wood side rails for the back of my 2008 Ranger to haul a bunch of stuff in boxes (no illegals) . I think I saw somewhere a metal piece that fits the stake holes and you just have to attach the wood. Anyone know where these are sold or should I just make it out of wood?

I bet he is. Never heard of what you're looking for though.

I'd just make 'em. I made these for my buddy's truck.....just kinda made stuff fit. Never made a back door for it though, but it did the job....




CRAP! I don't have pictures of histruck with them installed. I just used like trimmed down 2x2's in the stake holes, then some 1x6's or 2x6's going between the two stakes. yes they shook a little bit, you could make a crossmember on the front, and hinge and pin a rear gate to eliminate that shaking.

Ya, just make some.. I've also used some 2x2's and a scrap piece of plywood for sides. I had a crossmember at the front of the bed for strength and to protect the rear window.
Worked perfectly and was cheap.
