MX2: Building New Cab Floor

Posted on Posted in MX2: 2001 Ford Ranger

Onto building the new floor. I started with 16 gauge flat steel in a four foot square. Measured then cut to size. Since a flat floor wouldn’t be to structural, and not to mention would stand out, I use a bead roller to create some creases.

Outer step down, liner grooves and a 90 degree bend to wrap it up. Closeup of the groves.

To reinforce the floor I fab up some C channels from the flat 16 gauge steel.

Finished welding up all parts. The upper left junction will be where a new body mount will be.

New floor set in place. Still much more to do…. 🙂
