2008 Ford Ranger Sport
Okay, here is a question for you gentlemen.
I took a job in Alberta, that is now stable. At home, in Nova Scotia (6k Kilometers, or 4K miles away) is my truck, a ford Ranger.
I am going home in July. My vehicle has been looked after. Started periodically, driven, etc.
When I go home, I am planning on bringing my quad with me. It's 500 pounds in weight. Just under, really. I know the machine will hi-center on the wheel wells, so I was gonna make a little ramp for it. It is short enough I believe the tailgate will close.
Now, that said...
It's 500 lbs. I'm a fat bastard at 250 pounds and my GF is around 200 pounds.
Is this going to bother the truck to drive with that weight at that distance? I don't flog it. 100 kph (60 mph) the entire way, not a shade over.
I've got a 2008 Ranger Sport, V6, extended cab, 4X4, etc
