A dually ranger definitely turns heads. Will always have those people talking about it be it good or bad. Now for payload making it a dually will help with what the trucks rated for but you will need to upgrade your brakes and motor to handle moving and stopping the extra weight.

hey now. Get out of my head

All your doing by add duals is better weight displacement and traction. Except in snow... And adding 150 pounds of extra weight. Your truck will loose 150 pounds towing capability because of those extra wheels. But like said before me it's the same truck. Just 2 more wheels. So do it. It's been done several time by several members. Go for it.

Does it really matter how old the thread is? Just something to be able to talk bout with others who find it interesting in some way.

no one mentioned the sheet metal work that went into the bed sides of the pictures of the dually ranger that were posted. its the flare out of a stepside bed grafted onto a fleetside bed. youd have to do that or massive dorky looking bolt on flares to cover the tires.

Well the sheet metal was cut out completely then the flare side panels are bolted on. Not to hard to do. I only wish the fenders stick out 3 inches more.
