MX2: Extended Cab Road Test

Posted on Posted in MX2: 2001 Ford Ranger

ROAD TEST!!! Before I get to far I wanted to see how much the new body parts rattled or puckered. This was the first time I had ever driving with ear plugs too… The wheel wells were open and created a lot of noise.

Couldn’t resist photo-shopping a finished product.

The bed appears to twist quite a bit, although the rear cab mounts are NOT connected. This was a problem I thought I would have. With the frame flexing about an inch I worry it will tweak the cab. I may build a pivoting body mount for this, similar to what the Hackney’s did with their Fuso. (Note: after completion and the cab was fully fastened to the frame. The flex was considerably less)
