Anything is possible with enough money and time. But yes I believe I've heard it done. Good luck and keep us posted when/if you do it. I'd be interested to know if it's possible.

Well, anything is possible. Alot of people like to mount F150 cabs on there, I believe they just bolt right up. For more information from guys that would know check out www.fullsizebronco.com they know alot over there.

I believe there is a "Tonka Ranger" with a 98-00 body on a F150 frame and a V8... It was in a offroad mag on some dunes... Don't remember what issue, but i know I have it.

What shape is the body in. I could use the Dr side door and tailgate. The 79 Broncos wheel base is like a 103 Inches I think. I don't think your Ranger will properly.

should be easily possible with simple fabn needed maybe of supports and new body mount locations. but if you got the time and a nice way to get the body lifted and on i'd do it!
