View Full Version : Alright, I'm finally ready to build my box for my Ranger...

First things first...
I'm definitely going to have to do a wedge box. Are there any detailed instructions with pics on the easiest way to make all the angles flush? Like the slanted piece will have to be cut on the corner so that it connects flush against the straight back piece. How do I do this without ****ing anything up?
Also, if any of you have plans for a good sealed (or ported) box for a single cab Ranger, I'd greatly appreciate them. I'm either going to port my current two 8"s (the hardest box I'd have to build), get 4 of them sealed, or get two 12" CVTs sealed and sell my 8"s.

If you'll get me your max dimensions, I'll design you one to your specs for $5. LMK via PM.

Well, that's the problem with Rangers, the box HAS to be oddly shaped.
Those are the dimensions to a box that would obviously fit since it's made for my truck. Can you work with that? And there is no way I'd pay $170 (shipping) for a box, lol. Which is why I want to build it.

thats the box I just built for my truck; just like yours, almost.
If you can measure in your truck and get the height of those parts of the box that stick out on the bottom, I'll have you a design by tomorrow night. Going on a road trip tomorrow afternoon, so if you can get me that dimension by 4:00PM central time I'll have u a design that night :-)

FYI, I used to own a reg cab silverado, so I know a thing or two about regular cab trucks

Good, then you know they are a pain, lol. Sadly, I won't be able to get those dimensions tomorrow most likely because I'm getting my wisdom teeth out and from what I've been told, I'll be "loopy" for a few hours afterwards so I'll probably just sleep most of the day =/
I'll try to get the measurements, but it may have to wait. It's not like I'm in a hurry though, I've got 2 and half months til school starts again.

Single cabs lol, My box was fun and a challenge for me since it was my first angled box.
Well worth it IMO
EDIT: Its in primer now and almost ready for paint with ALOT of bondo on it :)
