Anyone ever think...

Of doing this? I know I know it's useless in a ranger. But it would be cool as hell! http://www.northerntool.com/webapp/w..._479690_479690

I know a guy that did that to a Ranger. He mainly haules firewood and it seems to work great for that.

I was thinking about it. I own a lawn care business and haul mulch and top soil and stuff but I just bought a trailer instead. But it would be cool to have still.

It isn't useless in a ranger. It can haul 1500lbs in the bed while staying under maximum safe GVW. If you haul wood or dirt or mulch or gravel or anything, it'd be great.

For the average joe, it's useless though.

I'm doing one of these on the 350 now, it's taken a crap load longer to get it on though. The rear hinges have to be modified, and finally just figured out how I'm gonna do it that works, haha.

I wouldn't say it's useless on a ranger, but on a stepside bed, you may not like it that much less area for stuff to go in.

how does it lift the bed so that the bed doesn't cut into the cab rear?
