In OKC, it was a blue ford ranger single cab with a flat bed and a dually rear axle. I had to laugh a little. What good is the extra weight capacity if you can't legally use it? I think it was a 4 cyl too.
No more surprising than the Campers I've seen built on toyota Pickup chassis. I think they have a V-6 in them. I've seen the "one ton" Rangers before, there's company that puts them out (or used to be). they are legal, but what are you hauling that a ton of it will fit in the back of a Ranger? Lead?
Unless you can get it re-certified, your weight limit is on your door jamb. A flat bed often weighs 1000 lbs more than a stock bed. That alone is near the payload limit of the year ranger I saw. If you have an accident, and you're overweight, it's pretty much your fault even if it wasn't.
In theory, it could be legal when recertified, but the brakes are made to stop a 3800lb truck with about 1000lb max in it. Try loading a ton on the back and see how safe it is.
i had that logo made, but with the "Ghey *** boys drive Ghey *** toys" with the Honda H emblem in the middle. it was stolen from me when they got into my car, i didnt even get a chance to put that vinly sticker on yet, drove from the mall where i got it to the b-ball park where it got ripped off. pissed me off, and the guy who designed it quit, and nobody else could find the file, nor had the balls to create a new one.
I stopped and talked to a guy once that had a dually '95 ExCab Ranger. It was actually pretty nicely done, he swapped a 5.0 in, had a D35 front axle and a Ford 10.25 rear axle. Both axles were geared with 4.10s and the rear had an ARB locker. I'm not sure if he had shortened the rear axle or not, but the whole truck looked pretty nice.
Mine is growing fruit plants / trees. Right now I've got 3 avocado trees, a fig tree, a mango tree, and some pomegranate seeds.
The avocado trees are 6mo, 3mo, and 2mo old. The fig tree is 4mo old, the mango is 1mo old. The pomegranate seeds were just put in last weekend, so they haven't...
There is a nice SC coming up for auction in Raleigh Dec 6th. I saw the car at the last auction in June, sat in it, etc. It's really in nice, original condition. https://inventory.raleighclassic.com/vehicles/51/1989-ford-thunderbird
Well, I have the opportunity to help convert a garage into a private arcade/man-cave because one of my friends has been collecting vintage arcade machines for a while and has run out of space. The challenge is that the garage has an unfinished ceiling and the apartment above the garage has...
