thats what i was just thinking haha if your gonna do a dually bag it
put 4 bags in the back .. just cause you can haha
find that guy that did the deisel 6.0 swap and do the same to yours
and make it lay frame
for flares you can use the stock fiberglass flaresides on a reg bed

oh then you have to put air horns on it... fun stuff

Thats the first time I've seen em with beds. All the ones I've seen on craigslist have flatbeds or cages.

whats funny is that you have some making duallys to look like a big truck, and some big trucks are running wide singles instead of duals to save fuel. (probly other reasons also, but im unsure of what it would be) locally ive seen a dually 1 gen reg cab long bed with a 302. unless you upgraded the axle, the dual setup wouldnt be for much more than looks. used to you could get parts from j.c. whitney to make a dually, dont know if the parts are still available. it would be neat to dual-up a ranger diesel, put clearance lights on the cab and stacks up through the box next to the cab. EAST BOUND AND DOWN!

gonna need to beef up ALOT of other things there buddy....


idk...i'm thinking not only dual rear wheels, but tandem powered axles, 2 speed rear ends, 10-14 forward gears, a detroit or cat since a 6.0 is a fuggin pile of garbage...i could go on...

i love smokey and the bandit, favorite movie, almost. but idk, i just though it would be uniques to have a 98-00 body style dually ranger with a 4bt, but i would never lay frame, hell no, too low, and its a truck. but idk if i even want to make it, i mean, unless its already done, and working, i would settle with that. but i guess the point of this thread is to POST PICTURES OF UR DUALLY RANGERS!

Box the frame, extend the wheel base, upgrade the breaks, of course upgrade the suspension and axles, and be able to tow as much as an F250 diesel with less than half the room on the inside?
