Re: 2008 Ford Ranger XLT

Re: single cab 96 ford ranger...subwoofers

I have less then that. The floor behind the seats is raised 5 inches or so and is only 6 or so deep at the bottom. And I am kinda tall so my seat has to be almost all the way back.

Re: single cab 96 ford ranger...subwoofers

I'm getting ready to make a custom fiberglass enclosure. The older rangers have a lot more room behind the seats then the new ones like mine.

Re: Dual Crash on the Highway

My step dad put his 94 on its side and it only caved the door and broke a hinge. He could have pushed back over and drove home but the cop wouldn't let him.
