They are pretty neat, but starting @ $710 ?!?! You could probably have a fab shop make you one for alot less.

lol yah the first thing i looked for was if they made one for rangers and when i saw the price i decided imma wait and see how my buddy builds him and talking him into helping me make one for me lol. and fabing my own i can make a few different changes to it. so that will be the nice part. only problem with that tailgate is the loss of mileage im going to be faced with. myth busters proved you get better mileage with the tail gate up rather to down or not at all. but yah i want mine

I've been thinking about those lately since I removed my spare tire carrier. Making one will be my rout. I want it straight up and I want mesh screen on it so I can still use my tonneau and have the bed area secured.
