Default Ranger Dually?

I've seen several photos of Ranger dually's. I was wondering if anybody knew if there is a kit out there or if it's something I'd have to get custom built?

It would be custom. JC Whitney sells an adapter kit for the dual wheels but you'll need to do some body work on the bed to make room for the extra set of wheels. Everything I've seen, they graphed fenders from a step side into a style side bed to do the job.

thats like putting a 10,000 dollar stereo system in a 3,000 dollar car lol, sounds good but is pointless. the amount of money he put into it plus the cost of the truck, he could have got a f-250 dually maybe? idk. i think its just something to have to say you have one. just my .02

The owner of that truck does have a full sized dually. It's on the other side of that "F-50". There is a thread with them sitting side by side. I think the story goes something along the lines of he wanted a daily driver that stood out but he didn't want to pay for the gas that the full sized dually requires.
