    Hello again PlowSite community,

    I wanted to post a quick note to let you know that the homepage of PlowSite will experience a major upgrade next week. We’re always looking for ways to improve our users’ experience on the site, and felt that this upgrade was needed and long overdue.

    With this upgrade, you’ll now see the top trending posts as soon as you visit PlowSite, and these will be updated throughout the day. You can also easily access videos and photos. As always, we encourage you to include videos and photos in your own posts to share with your fellow PlowSite users.

    Be assured that all of the forums, content and data that you’ve been accustomed to will remain intact, as will all current site features. You’ll also be able to easily access the full list of forums directly from our new homepage.

It has a Western unimount 6 1/2' plow and Western 2000 spreader. 4 inch suspension liftand 31X10.5 tires. I have more pics but need to resize them first ussmileyflag

I had a 93 with nearly the same setup. Had a 6.5' Meyer and Buyers spreader. It was a great plow truck. Made a believer outta anyone who doubted a small truck could plow.

I was talking to my boss last time we were out we both agreed that we need a ranger with a little plow on it to get in between all the cars in the condo complexes we plow. it can be a real pain.

nice setup.

yea its a 4.0 ltr motor.Were thinking about getting rid of it for a new one it has 130,000 miles on it and still runs strong but me and my buddy who i plow with are thining of buying a new one just cause were kinda anal on equipment and reliability. ive had 2900lbs of rock salt in the back of it and done things no one would ever ask a small pickup to do but she has always come threw. I'll shrink down the other pics of it so i can post them so everyone can see them.

I had a 97 ranger, what a good truck, still miss it sometime's. How does it handle the spreader on the back?
It handles it quiet well. mind you this isnt a stock Ranger but usually i have about 3000lbs of rock salt in 50lb bags in the back of it and the spreader holds 15 bags of rock in in and the truck has never complaned about it. wesport

what dump insert is in the truck behind it? Also is it enclosed for leaves or wood chips? or are those just sides
Im not sure what kind of dump insert it is. it is not one of our truck but ive been meaning to ask him what kind it is since it is aluminum. it isnt enclosed he usually has it filled up with grass clippings. He is a landscaper we are a tree service :drinkup:

I'm in the middle of putting a ranger together, any other tips? THanks in Advance!!!
we only had the lift in it for about 4 years now. before the lift when i would put about 2000lbs of rocksalt in the back the truck use to squat pretty good after the lift it dosent even move. I put another trans cooler in it to go along with the one in the radiator. and id say the 4.0 motor is a must if you wanna put a spreader on the back and carry a good load of salt.
