    Twin I beam interchangeability

    If you use a Flux Capacitor thats nuclear powered, you'll never run out of power. Have one on out motorhome and still providing power after 8 years. Probably good for another 30-40 years. This one is only $27 bucks on Etsy. :haha: Grumpaw

    New RTR and RTR Rambler package..

    Bronco, all I'm saying is that the vast majority of 4x4 Rangers, Explorers, New Bronco's to come, trucks, ect, will never see any off road use.

    An observation....

    Just for info, I measured my 2009 2 wd Ranger and center of bed was right at 45 inches, ground to top of bed rail. Thats with stock tires. Soooo, earlier pick up's beds weren't much higher than our stock'll give you some perspective. Here's a pic of a totally stock 59 Ford...

    New RTR and RTR Rambler package..

    I agree Jumper, but those types of "park" trails do not require a truck/suv with solid front axles, lockers, ect. My little Subi has racked up many miles on old logging roads, and National Park trails in many of the lower 48 states and Alaska, and has the chips and tree branch scratches to...

    An observation....

    Just a matter of "styling progress" Back in them olden days all pickups were step-side, and they were work trucks. In the 50's Ford came out with the first styleside bed, but even then it was very accessible because it was designed that way. The "belt line" was much lower than modern trucks...

    New RTR and RTR Rambler package..

    Ford should include a small step ladder so all the soccer mom's n dad's can get into the bed to secure those heavy soccer balls and pads. Seriously, how many of those Rangers and Bronco's do you think will ever see true off road use ? one in twenty five, one in fifty ? How many owners are...
