Late 80s B2000 Advice

I get that! You stick it on one of the other junk ranger beds lol lol okay okay so not everyone has 22 rangers out back and 3-4 shells to chose from. Can hang it from garage ceiling, I’ve seen them hung from trees too. I’ve seen them stuck on saw horses. My favorite though is when they are used as a cover for snowmobiles,
Hang from a.tree can be raised and lowered.
Open the back window and pull your sled in,
Like a mini car port.
Some of them can be stood up too, like on the side of your house resting on the front, take up way less room


They can be a pita in the winter, have to keep the snow off or they will
Collapse

People love those can back toppers, canvas can be folded out of the way when not used and they are pretty tough.

Most don't for sure! Lmao
Ain't got a garage either, it would have to either sit in the yard or in the driveway pretty much lol

Yeah, those are some fun ideas, least it dont snow round here! As said, I'll have to keep an eye out, but want to get it and measure the bed first, guy told me it's the full long one, but I see three different lengths online, so just want to be sure before nabbing something that don't fit. Definitely think it could look pretty nice with the shell
 






Nothing sucks worse than thinking the shell will fit your bed and then finding out it’s 2” too long or too short! We see this all the time. People think they are universal! One that fits a Tacoma should fit a ranger and an s-10
Right? Nope!!!

THIS!!!! ^^^^^

or... you could also use it to store stuff... certainly takes up much less room than a lance camper :))))

A lance camper?
 






Problem is taking it off, it's a question of where do I put it lol
Plus finding one for that sucker is probably a lot harder these days. But I'll probably keep an eye out so if I ever need dry storage, I got it!

I used to camp out of the back of the truck. I had a carpet kit back there that turned into a bed.

The shells I definitely don't mind, and would like to find for the mazda, but yeah, the camper ones a no! lol
 






Camper shells are also nice when everyone you know wants to voluntold you to use your truck to help them move things. Nope, there's a shell on the back so nothing fits in the bed...

Surprisingly rare that I've had that happen, though I don't exactly have a lot of friends or anything lol

You don't need friends like that, nobody does.

Put the mattress in the Explorer then it would have a bed. Add some indoor/outdoor carpet for a shaggin wagon.
