super curious how it works for you, we're thinking about one, how'd the install of the tow plate go? What are you using for braking? and have you taken it across a scale yet?

Got it back yesterday with the base plate installed. However the wiring harness
was the wrong one. I needed the one for the led tail lights. Maybe get it going
next week. They say the base plate was easy to install. They did have to remove the tow hooks though put them in a box for me to keep.

Not sure about the part number. Need to talk to blue ox let them know if you
have the Led tail lights. I had someone put the base plate and hook up the wiring for me so I don't know to much about the install. He did say that the
base plate was easy just a few holes to drill. He did have a hard time with the
wiring the directions were wrong. He had to talk to someone at blue ox.

I'm super curious to know which Ranger you got (Super Crew, which bed etc) and what it actually weighs setup to be towed. AT the moment we have an F150 we used to know behind our DP but can't behind the new smaller rig, and an older honda element which we can tow. If the Ranger is a great config weighs low enough I'm playing wtih the idea of replacing both those vehicles with a ranger.

That's the 5' bed right? I'll be super curious if you have a chance to get an actual weight with full fuel etc to know what it is. I have a 5000lb limit so I'd like to know how close I'd be getting to that. Once the bikes are on the truck etc...

Have you seen one of the smaller cab models? Wondering how much actual room is in those back seats...
