Doing that to a Ranger would be the equivalent to putting a big wing spoiler on the back of a front wheel drive single gear tricycle.

I have seen a few older ranger and s-10 that were converted to duellies and had cargo boxes instead of regular beds. It different but I dont know if I would do that to my truck

i was kinda thinking it would be cool to get an older ranger, reinforce the frame, make it a dually and put a diesel in there with stacks

There was An exact replica of this thread a few months ago. It was discussed. The ranger does not have enough power to need the dually axle. Hell 1/2 ton trucks don't even have a dually option!

To make use of the power/towing capacity you would have to extend the wheelbase at 3 -4 feet to be able to haul the kind of trailers that would hold that much weight with any kind of stability.

Could be all right if you put a bigger engine in and beef up the suspension...

Theres no point. With a dually axle with big tires, the tires have to be skinny (10-11" wide MAX). And if you get 40+" tires they come as wide as 18"+. It would be a waste of money (2 extra tires and wheels) for not a whole lot more tire. Also the skinny tires have alot smaller tread lugs.

I thought about doing this to an older ranger and putting a really small dump box on it and reinforcing the fram and suspension. I have a landscaping & maintenance business, so I am always thinking of different things to do. --BOB-- I have also seen this done to older tacomas and datsuns.
