I have a shadow black fx4 (no bed liner) 5ft box that I'd like to trade for a 6ft box. Im doing a long bed conversion and im sure someone would like to do a short bed conversion to a supercab (would be an awesome crawler with a short wheelbase). Pm me if you are interested. Thanks.

I can’t imagine someone wanting a 5’ bed on a supercab but I have seen a few flatbed conversions

Yeah I do some crazy stuff. The bed conversion is probably on the easier side of the things im doing. To compare I have a 69 awd twin turbo itb independent cantilever suspension fairlane cobra fastback that I have been building. The bed conversion seems strait forward compared to that.

How where you doing it? Cut out wheel wells and move them

I'm thinking a short wheelbase SuperCab would look weird. Like when guys take a 4 door 57 Chevy and make it a 2 door. Proportions are all wrong. But leave the wheel base alone on a SuperCab and shorten the rear over hang.. that might be interesting.

Now.. maybe a regular cab Ranger short bed would look cool, but that would be a lot of work.

Does ford make a fleet regular cab? Because a crew cab 7ft bed would be awrsome.

Nope, no regular cab. Here's some quick visuals. Also included an 8 ft SuperCrew.

I saw on FB someone put a 6ft bed on a 4door ranger in Australia.

So as far as the swap goes, I will need longer leaf springs, relocating shock mounts, extended brake lines, extended driveshaft, and extending the frame. These guys at BDS extended their frame 10 inches. It seems pretty strait forward.

Now you can't say something like this without including pictures!! Or videos!! :beer:

Long bed crew cab does sound cool! Definitely going to follow this!
