If I wanted to go from my short bed to a long bed... how hard is that? I know I need the bed first but do I have to move my axle at all? is the placement of the wheel on a long bed different from the short? or is the extra foot just add past the wheels?

If i recall (dont quote me on this) but I think the long bed rangers were based on the supercab frame (supercab and single cab ranger frames are different. so sinc you have a single cab i think it would difficult to do.
