I know this sounds very redneck but I was just wondering if it was possible for me to put longer lugs on the back of my ranger and put a couple skinny tires on each side so I can make a homemade dually. Any suggestions for parts or tire sizes are welcome thanks.

i wouldnt mess with that, if you get a good set of tires your weakest point isnt your tires, its your suspension and powertrain. your axle will bend before you have tire over load issues if you got a D or E rated tire. not to mention the extra stress it would put on your axle shafts and bearings...

Depends on the state.

Some states require a certain amount of tire coverage. If you just have an open tire in those states, you'll get pulled over and ticketed.

There are kits to make your Ranger a dually, but I don't feel like looking them up.

I know JC Whitney sells an adapter and they even sell aftermarket fenders to cover the extra width in the back.

Call it what you will, but you're not the service member overseas trying to order things for your Ranger. Not many places are cooperative with shipping to APO. They're garbage!

soooo what you're saying is, that bc a company wasnt willing to take the added liability/expense of shipping overseas that they're *******s? I'm sorry, but a thought process like that makes you one too.

In this day and age, its smart business to stay away from added liabilities and potential profit loss.

Grow up.
