I've been wondering what you plan to strap down in the back of the Ranger. I've never had anything back there that a few bungee straps wouldn't secure.

Mostly just deer and antelope. Sometimes we get more than one so they would hang over the side some. Also would be handy to have for tree trimmings that hang over some. Some of the hunting areas are a bit rough so do not want to bounce one out. Bungees are what I plan on hooking to the tie downs.

All finished except for the paint to dry. Made 6 of them. Likely only need 4 at one time. 2 extra in case I lose one. The tab to hook the bungees can face in or out. Snugged the prototype down and I can't move it, so I am claiming success. Still have to stop in at ACE and get some 1/2"- 13 x 5" bolts.

Now where are you going to put the two extra ones that you can remember three years from now when you lose one?

Got that covered. There is a storage box under the front seat where these will go along with an emergency tool kit.

Ordered a full windshield, back window and two metal framed doors today for the Ranger. $1,049 with free shipping. Damned, accessories are expensive. Should be here before the end of the month. Ofcourse they say all of the items fit my Ranger. We will see.

Of course they will fit (with slight modifications)

I found I had a little problem when it rains, as the edge of the plastic roof sits slightly behind the new windshield, which makes the rain drip inside the cab onto the dash.

Got some 1/4" x 3" rolled rubber and a 1/8" x 1" aluminum flat bar to make a visor that extends out over the windshield so the rain drips on the outside of the wind shield. Used 1/4-20 bolts and nuts to secure it. Made a hole punch from a 1/8" pipe nipple and ground the end to a sharp edge. Worked real slick.

Turned out as expected. Now waiting for the next rain to see how ell it works.
