Ranger Accessories - 10/02/21 12:20 PM

Other than a roof, bought it bone stock. Who's got this gun rack? I found it used. Seems to go right next to cab, or when rotated gives some space. Pretty difficult to pull the tight fitting pin with no room to get your hand between cab and drivers side case so I'm gonna ride as shown. Hard wire mounted scabbards so there's no slop when you remove rifle. This back up light was strongly suggested and glad it was. Two minute install, wired to the back up alarm harness that no one uses so is only hot when key on, in reverse. [Linked Image]

Following, picked up used ranger with that same gun rack. Need to find the pins to secure the cases onto the rack.

Home Depot, spciality hardware cabinet. These had never been used, original pins were pretty tight. I bought one slightly undersized so my stiff, cold fingers in the dark won't have such a hard time. This was for the rear of the boot to access the rifle.

If you're talking about the cases themselves to the rack, they come with a rubber bungee. This has a lot of slop in it, and wants to come out when you're pulling your rifle out. Myself and my hunting partners wire them in place so they don't move when you pull your rifle out of the case.

Thanks that’s what I was thinking but didn’t seem like it would be a good option.

I only put those clips in while trailering...

If I am at a point on a ranch road where that boot is coming loose and a rifle is about to fly out, I have bigger fish to fry.

Shotguns on the other hand... The "butt" of those boots seem to work themselves off when a shotgun is in. Why? I have no clue.
