Mini dump?

I just thought how cool would it be to make a mini dump truck out of the ranger? Make it a duel wheel and just throw a custom build dump bed on. Has anyone seen anything like this before?

You can do it pretty easily actually and wouldn't really need dual rear wheels.

A friend of my grandfather had one. It was a first gen with a Ford 9 inch and a 302. He plowed snow with it and hauled gravel and firewood. No crazy weight but it was cool and could fit just about anywhere. I will see if he still has it and snap a few pictures if I get the chance.

As far as dual wheels that would be interesting but would the frame hold the weight ?

The fenders, you could take some steppie plastic side and mold them on a styleside bed and get the tire coverage.

Hah! I remember back in the day on Trucks when Stacy put a dump bed on one of his projects, I thought that was the coolest thing ever!

Yeah, I saw that episode also but he used a system that uses an air bag and compressor which I think would be easier to install.

I can't see it being very useful for the money spent. Maybe on my F350, but the Ranger can't handle anything I couldn't shovel out of the bed.
