Nice set up. by why do the dove tail ramps not go all the way to the ground?????seems you are limiting youself to the equipment you can haul...

I nice idea might be to have some small tool boxes/cubbys put in front of and behind the rear wheel, a place to store things like gas cans, small tools, hoses, roundup sprays ect...and it would give you some more "floor" space up top....and lower the trucks center of gravity as well....

Very nicely done.....

Way cool. Looks good and it's nice and compact.

I did something really similar to that to a truck I ran when I was still in school.
It worked GREAT for me.

Cool looking, could you load a 52"Tracer on that? I can't use 3 of 21er on most of my accounts cause it will put me way way behind schedule, all I need is a 52" on that Ranger...)

Thanks

Yes, you could easily fit a 52" on the back. The truck will do a wheelie going down the road but you could do it.
