    There was a thread here about a guy who fit a quick 36 and a 21 inch machine in his ford ranger. Truthfully one of the nicest setups I've seen here.

    i think if your gonna get a 48 or 52 it would be worth the money to buy a cheap trailer......im almost postive i could get my 52 bunton wb, 33 billy goat and push mower in the back of my truck but when you could get a trailer with plates for like 600 its not worth it too drop .....just my 2 cents

    I have an 05 f150 with regular size bed and I fit a 21" and my quick 36 in fine... I think you could possibly get a 48 up there but you wouldnt be able to get it between the wheel base, so youd have to leave the tailgate down. My setup is similar to the other guys but i just have 2 ramps. hope that helps

    yeah, a ranger is smaller than an f 150, i just couldent figure how your post had anything to do with mine.That was a nice setup though, i agree. but i was asking if i could fit a 48, quick 36 and 21 in a f150, not sure how the ranger fits in there?

    thanks mc, i was thinking of putting the 48 in first so the deck would sit infront of the wheel wells, the 36 between wells and 21 behind that. not sure where ill put the gas cans, maybe ill fab up a rack that goes into the hitch. thanks for the idea.

    if you arent solo you may wanna consider buying 2 quick 36's if you like them enough. obviously the only reason for doin so would be if you could fit them both in together. with the 21" turned sideways up against the cab and the quick 36 straight in theres a good foot or so of room.

    I'm sorry I misunderstood your post. I thought you meant a 48" or a quick 36 and a 21". If you manage it please take some pictures I would like to see it.
