Some things are easy to model... others not so much. I wouldn't feel comfortable sharing the model of the bed. It just isn't accurate enough.

I made the model knowing that I was building a wooden structure that I could check each board for 'fit". I have yet to build the "Lumber Rack".
Totally understand.
Thanks for your quick response!

Shot a few photo's of the truck today.

The Shrockwork Rocksliders really do compliment the lines of the Ranger and look like they are a part of the truck, not some aftermarket afterthought.

Added photo's below to show how much actual space there is if you want to use the rocksliders as steps:

MotivX Oil Filler Funnel

Following BButah and rpeterson53 advice ( EcoBoost Oil Fill Funnel... What Are You Using.) I modified my new MotivX funnel today.

Works great.. nice tight fit! Thanks guys!

Link to funnel on Amazon: Motivx Tools Engine Oil Funnel for Ford Vehicles with 1/4 Turn Oil Filler Caps

Here's how I did it...

With the end sanded down I checked to see if it fit the truck. Nope. Just as BButah and rpeterson53 stated the space at the end of the funnel theads needed to be widened...

Be sure to remove any little burs of the plastic, like those below. A fingernail seems to peel it off just fine

RockSliders & Ice Build Up

Today we were driving in some pretty nasty winter weather and had a lot of ice accumulate on the truck. Temperatures were in the teens, wind driven snow and driving in slush.

We started hearing a knocking noise on the passenger side outer floor area every time we would drive over an abrupt bump in the road.

I pulled over to see what was up and there is one spot on the Shrockworks Rockslider dimpled plate that is really close to the rocker panels. That spot is on the rocker panel near the front door.

Ice builds up on the rocker panel, and the slider and bridges across. The Sliders attach to the frame, the cab does too, but the cab is mounted in rubber. So when the cab moves, you hear a knocking noise.

The funny thing is that tight clearance is only in that one location... and is the same on both sides of the truck.

I'll send an email to Shrockworks. If they revise the design of future sliders just a bit it would eliminate the issue.

If you buy the sliders without the dimpled top plates you won't have this issue.

Update 02-25-2020: Here is the reply back from Mark @ Shrockworks

"Well that’s certainly something we didn’t consider! Ice buildup isn’t something we are familiar with down here in Texas. I appreciate the feedback."

Do you have a picture like the bottom three, with a tape measure, of the door open and seeing how big of a foot step pad you have? Curious if these would be sufficient for a step for a 6 year old and my wife so they could use it to get in the truck, and to justify my need to buy these over cheesey side steps from Ford.

Took some photo's for you... hope these help. I put a worn out size 12 hiking boot on the slider for reference.

I'm 6'-1" tall, I don't use them as a step. My wife is 5'-2" tall, she does use them as a step.

Dude you are the BEST! This is exactly what I wanted to know and more.

I may need them, I'm 6'0 and wife's 5'7, Icon suspension kit is on the way, and then bigger tires soon too, so I feel like once these two combine, I'll need steps. Sliders are the best compromise.

Cool Dude
I don't think it's a REAL FX4. think your salesman heard you wanted one, ran out back, and stuck some stickers on a XL, then said, we'll make you a great deal! :like:
