For a no-nonsense pick-up truck with serious power, you wouldn’t be going wrong with the Ford Ranger. You don’t expect a pick-up to provide a comfortable drive but the electric power steering and the control of the Ranger is impressive for such a large vehicle. This truck can be used for business but he can also fulfill the needs of those with an adventurous lifestyle.
The Ford Ranger is a powerful vehicle which specialises in the shifting and towing of heavy loads. No matter what kind of load you’re carrying, the Ranger can more than likely move it. With a payload of just over a tonne and towing capability of roughly 3500kg, this pick-up is ready to take on the toughest of tasks.
Pick-up trucks aren’t renowned for their passenger-carrying as their prime use is for cargo. But, the Ford Ranger comes in three sizes; the Regular Cab, the Super Cab or the Double Cab.
The Regular Cab is for those who want a Ford Ranger specifically for work purposes. Only available in the no-frills XL spec, it has the biggest carrying capabilities but only has seating for a driver and single passenger.
With the Super Cab and Double Cab shapes, you can carry passengers. The Double has seating for up to 5 people wheras the Super Cab has two foldable seats in the rear. But, this area tends to be used for storage and only sporadically for passengers regularly.

Pick Up Accessories
Pick Up Truck Accessories and upgrades. Swiss vans can fit a range of pick up truck accessories either at main dealers or by our own mobile fitters. We can add almost any official manufacturer accessory to you payments
- Load liners and specialist paint coatings like Raptor. These are essential to preventing the back from getting scratched or it will of course rust.
- Hard tops of any shape or size. We supply anything from a hard top cover to a more ‘Truckman” style which has windows. There are literally dozens on the market and all come with their own particular manufacturers guarantees. Its only the manufactuer approved ones however that come with a 3 year national guarantee.
- Hard tops can let in water due to the nature of their design. Thus a pickup truck is unsuitable really for anyone who has to keep the contents 100% dry
- Roll bars
- Upgrade your alloy wheels to something more appealing
- Full range of Pioneer, Kenwood and Alpine stereos and Satnav
Reversing cameras, WIFI units, trackers and alarms. Some manufacturer units are a little basic and clunky. Units such as the Alpine HALO connect to a smart phone thus have all the benefits of Satnav without the price and a super huge scree for ease.
- Sidebars, sidesteps
- Leather upholstery

Is bespoke typically £399 – £499 month. Often we use the dealer to build the vehicle rather than us to ease any warranty issues with distance.
A Carbon or a WASP is simply a bespoke 4×4. We dont stock the parts and each time they are ordered in so typical delivery is 8 weeks. We also ask for much larger deposits to cover the cost of the fits.
In its basic form we simply change the quite unattractive Ford wheels
Change the front grille
Leather isnt really needed as its standard on the Wildtrack
We offer suspension changes but frankly you are better off having it done within a few miles of home just in case it requires any adjustments.
