I'm looking for someone to help me replace my floorpan in my 98' Ranger. Problem is, is that they don't make a replacement floor pan for my year truck and all I can think of is to have someone cut out the front driver and passenger portion of the pan and have it replaced with some new sheet metal. Is there anyone in the northern Illinois area that could help me with this? I'm willing to travel a little further and would like some quotes if possible.

Thanks!

another option is to find a ranger in the junkyard with good floor pans. any ranger newer than 98 that is the same cab setup as yours will have the same floor pan as yours, so you might get lucky and find one that has been wrecked that is only a few years old and not rotted out. cut out as much of the floor pan as possible on the donor truck and have it trimmed and patched to fix your 98.

Have you Googled the pans? Tried Ebay? I see the pans for Rangers up to 97 and then from 98 and on.

Try here at Mill Supply. See what they have. Give them a call.

I triple dog-dare anyone to try to find a half or full floor pan for a 1992 Ranger Supercab (not just the front quarter patch panels). I’ve spent 4-5 days searching. No one makes them. NO ONE.

PS - I’d love to have someone prove me oh-so-wrong. But it’s like finding a unicorn in a patch of 4-leaf clovers under a blue moon with naked fairies dancing around. After just a few months of having the truck, I’m almost ready to just get rid of it and take a severe beating on the price. Sucks. :annoyed:

You mean an entire floor pan in a single piece?

You need to have a '67 Camaro or something to find that. I think for a Ranger just the pan half is the same for reg or super.

Any idea where I could find a pan half, though? I could definitely make that work. Can’t find one anywhere.
