Default ranger longbed trailer.

took my rolled 97 ranger and made a useable trailer out of it, bed is from my 94, still want to put a tool box on the front.
the beginning, the 97 i bought for 500 that had a bad trans (no 1st):

97 when it was a flatbed, before i rolled it in a field:

after i rolled it, took off flatbed and cut crushed roof off, actually drove it this way a few days, was kind of fun:

time to cut the frame, made the cut right behind the trans crossmember:

bent frame rails in to each other and welded in a 3x3 beam for a tounge:
