Default Custom Extended Cab

I have a 2004 Ranger with a regular cab (seats 3) and a long (7 foot) bed. I am curious to the possibility of adding a custom extended cab built into the bed to be able to add two more buckets seats (facing in) for junior riders, gear, etc.

I have not been able to find anything thus far in my search. I'd appreciate any input.

Some might suggest I just buy an extended cab truck. I bought this from my grandfather and it has only around 25K on it thus far. I'd like to hold on to it for a while...and would not mind putting into it

Thanks!

This is interesting....
But if your serious then I would say get a truck cap, put that on and then cut that instead of the cab/bed/anything important. Then work on sealing off the open part and it's like an extended cab, open back window of your truck> if you put the jump seats and all the other assorted crap, it's like an extended cab

That's sorta what I was thinking....was not going to cut anything.

I actually did see one about a month ago on kijiji, looked like shit though and probably leaked. It was a square body ranger however and was made to have a full size back seat. It almost looked like a sleeper cab off of a semi. Not sure why he did it but to each his own I guess.

You had my scared when I first read this, was imaging Frankenstein but with your ranger.
Do you have any metal/fabrication experience?
Working with anything like design, computer models or cad, etc...? Or anything that can help you, or are you going in blind? Because this seems like a complicated job.

if you just want an extended cab with 7' bed just go buy the cab at a junk yard and stretch your frame.

Ford already has made a 4 door ranger like ours but it couldn't be sold here because it failed rollover testing. There are plenty of these in South America. But as far as a custom job it's going to take a lot of work.

That's nice, but isn't it really just an Explorer Sport Trac with a slightly different body?
