I've seen the Ford Ranger set ups with the original bed removed and replaced with a specialty landscaper's body w/ a dove tail. This seems like an amazing idea but I would need something bigger for it to work in my area.

Does anyone utilize this idea but instead replace the body of a long bed work truck that can carry more weight and have a larger surface area to fit mowers? Maybe a couple 36" or even 48"s??

Pics would be awesome!!!

Thanks that helped a lot! I'd want something of that sort with the dovetail, except on a long bed with some Heavy Duty leaf springs and bags on there. Seems so effiecient and professional looking.

I was going to do it to my old dodge 2500, but then it got sold. I was looking at a UPS truck today and was thinking if you put a gate on the back they would make great mowing trucks for cheap money.

Shep, where do you keep finding these cool trucks? I want to see some pictures of your Rangers with the custom bodies too.
